iPhone 4 displays technical glitch

As consumers queued to get their hands on the first batch of Apple’s iPhone 4, Apple chief Steve Jobs told new owners complaining that the new device loses its signal when held in a certain way to 'just avoid holding it in that way'.

Angry consumers are posting videos online showing the problem which arises when the metal antenna that surrounds the edge of the new device is covered by the user's fingers

Jobs’ terse advice comes in an emailed  response to tech site Ars Technica, which enquired why the new device was suddenly losing signal.

Jobs said: ‘All phones have sensitive areas. Just avoid holding it in this way.’

In a formal statement the company said: ‘Gripping any phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas.

‘This is a fact of life for every wireless phone. If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases.'
