    Apple generally plans press events pretty carefully from what I've seen. Regardless of what the content is, it should be interesting. I wonder if they will field questions from the audience.

    I'm curious to know what they are going to talk about. It would be good if they addressed the antenna issue in more detail and I'm assuming that's what they are going to talk about. It's definitely been a PR problem for them.

    Considering Apple's 'It just works' ethos I sure hope this conference is to address the iPhone 4's signal/antenna issue because keeping quiet about it any longer is just going to create a bigger PR nightmare for them, and I hope that they offer a better solution other than 'buy a case' or 'learn to hold it a different way'. Those aren't things you want to be told when you've bought an expensive phone such as this!

    The signal issue for me hasn't resulted in any dropped calls (yet) but the data performance is terrible compared to that of my 3G!

    This should be interesting...

    EDIT: on another note regarding my iPhone, I have just noticed that the left screw at the bottom (when looking at the iPhone front on) is sticking out a fair bit (enough to be caught by things in your pocket etc). I'm certain this wasn't like this when I bought the phone, so either I've been dismantling my iPhone in my sleep or the screw is slowly working itself loose?

    That is enough reason to take it back to Apple.

    I am expecting Apple to announce that they are giving out free bumpers to all iPhone 4 owners....anything less and I'll be pretty angry about this. The iPhone 4 is terrible without a case on it

    I tried with the smallest screwdriver I have and it doesn't seem to wanna go anywhere (the screwdriver wasn't small enough to correctly fit and I didn't want to force it incase it destroyed the screw head). Plus, when you spend this much money on a phone you want it to be absolutely perfect, you don't wanna have to do DIY fix-its, screw bits in or have to cover it up with a bumper case or whatever just so that it works as advertised, am I crazy for thinking this?

    no you're not crazy......but getting the proper screwdriver to screw in a loose screw aint no big deal.....the stupid reception issue is pure crap IMO, they need to make it right for sure!

    Because God knows that no manufacturer ever has problems...I think you're being a little over dramatic expecting everything to be perfect on every item ever produced. Mistakes and problems happen.

    Take it back to Apple, I'm sure they'll fix or replace it.

    I know that pretty much every product has a certain percentage fail rate, its a fact of life and what you get when mass producing things, it's just annoying, but if Apple address the issues and work out a solution then fair do.

    I suppose its not a company making a mistake that annoys people as much as how they then choose to deal with that mistake. I have never had to take anything back that I have bought from Apple so this experience is new to me (which is probably why I'm being a little over dramatic).

    I'm going to wait and see what comes out of tomorrow's event and then if I get chance pop into the Apple store over the weekend.

    Question, if they replace your handset do you have to bring back everything (box etc) or do they just replace the handset?

    They'll just replace the phone. My friend had his replaced recently due to the "sim" issue.

    But be ready, you almost certainly won't get a new one right away, they'll have to order one for your replacement, then they'll contact you when its ready.

    Rumors are also saying that they might just give a $30 credit for accessories, cause some of us already bought the bumper, like me. lol

    I would honestly not mind a credit. I got a case from ebay for just 1 buck, and it's awesome. It's the reason why I returned the bumper. It offers NO protection of any kind but the sides...or to help with the reception...hmmm
