    You should offer this for an Engadget article.  This stuff needs to be spread all over the internet.  Good work MacB.

    The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled.

    Sorry, I meant post the brand/model for each image you posted.

    Also, much better to have an antenna issue that can be fixed with Scotch tape than video & screen issues.

    Also quite interesting: Videos showing BlackBerry ?death grip? removed from YouTube

    ...
    Earlier today, Electonista posted two videos of RIM?s soon to be released BlackBerry 9800 that showed the death grip in action. The funny thing is, the videos weren?t posted to show the death grip phenomena, it just kind of happened during the demo.

    Let’s compile a list:  Take your phone manual and scan the relevant page on the antenna.  We can then forward to PED.  It’s a great story.  If MacB needs help, I’m decent at sizing images for a compelling summary by handset manufacturer.

    well don’t give me too much credit for this one guys….most of the images are already on the net…i made one from an online manual that i came across…thing is: this needs to get out…it’s a technology issue NOT an brand and/or phonetype issue….that is the point.
    After all is said and done the iPhone 4 is the BEST phone.period.

    Google has the power to control information according to its interests. Is not that a real legal problem?
    That probably why Google is learning from China!

    We need to spread this ASAP….just let the world know that most (smart)phones are affected…not just the iPhone 4
