Unless you hold the new iPhone 4 just right, some users report that it's possible to lose the signal.
Now, Apple CEO Steve Jobs has finally spoken out about the so-called "death grip" flaw.
"We're not perfect. We know that, you know that," he told a room full of reporters at the July 16th press conference.
He announced Apple will provide free cases until September 30th to fix the problem.
In the meantime, desperate iPhone 4 users have come up with their own do-it-yourself remedies to fix the problem.
Remedy One: Stretch a rubber bracelet around the edge.
Remedy Two: Use clear nail polish and paint it on the phone's edges.
Remedy Three: Place a little bit of duct tape on the bottom left-hand corner where the internal antenna is located...although it's unsightly on what's supposed to be a slick smartphone.
And if you need anymore proof of how much the iPhone has become a part of American pop culture, it has been reported that Oksana Grigorieva used an iPhone to record those explosive Mel Gibson rants.
