iPhone 4 latest important accessory

Rivers of ink have flowed about iPhone’s problems with its reception, there is no secret to anyone. The jokes about the magic phone do not stop. The newest joke about it is the End Call sticker.

The idea is simple: stick it in the area where it is known that, if the hand is held, it decreases the signal and interrupt calls. Stick your stickers and have a virtual end call button.

The manufacturer knows that Apple fans are not saving money when it comes to iPhone. Therefore, he demands for this small sticker no less than 29 dollars.

Critics for Apple iPhone 4 of 16 GB in its first sales day

Until now, 27 iPhone 4 owners reported some yellow areas on display, despite any adjustment of brightness. 

It seems that another problem that some users reported refers to a signal error, meaning that if the iPhone is held in hand it has a really bad reception.

Moreover, the iPhone 4 was also tested in order to see how durable it is. Therefore, when it was dropped on the ground, the screen flourished as a frozen winter glass.

On the other hand, this may be only a way to make a bad image against Apple, given that today the iPhone4 started being sold in stores.

Apple and AT&T pre-order iPhone 4 – a nightmare

Apple’s new iPhone was released for sale Tuesday for pre-orders – and, again, the company had big problems.

Online systems and telephone systems from Apple and AT&T, Apple’s exclusive partner in the United States, were blocked. Many consumers have complained that they can’t order the new iPhone 4 through the ordering systems of the two giants, just like in the previous iPhone pre-launches.

“Given the extremely high volume of calls we are unable to answer your call right now,” said the recording on the Apple’s phone line to buyers. “Please call back.”

The situation wasn’t better either with the online sales, where the sites appeared to be in a perpetual state of crashing, or long waits.

“The good news for Apple: Lots of people want to buy product,” says Van Baker, analyst at Gartner. “The bad news: all system errors that block the system.”

The price for the new iPhone 4 starts at $ 199, with a new contract for two years or upgrade, and includes a thinner body, higher-resolution display and two-way video calling.
