I've been doing research and obsessing about the antenna issue and I know its stupid and a waste of time but does anybody here know if apple ever did start putting a protective coating that helps correct the signal problem? I have a week 40 and I use an otterbox so I don't notice any problem myself but I'm still curious if this issue was ever fixed in any way shape or form besides them offering the free bumpers till sept 30th.

I also live in a city with pretty good reception and I used field test mode and did the death grip with my wifes phone which is also an week 40 and couldn't really get the signal to drop at all. I'm just wondering if all the rumors were true about them putting a coating on it or what really ever happened if anything?!

Thanks in advance! Sorry if I'm in the wrong area!

I don't know if they ever put a coating on it, but I got one of those clear protective coatings put on the back, front, and sides, and didn't notice much of a difference. The bumper alleviated all of my problems and I haven't taken it out of it since.

No, and as you have discovered by your own testing, the whole thing was way overblown.

Obsessing??? About an issue which you can't even reproduce on the 2 iPhones you already own. Sorry, but that's a lot of nonsense. If yours work to your satisfaction, why is it that you even care what someone else says?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
