What is the deal with the antenna?
Due to the new design where the outer rim of iPhone 4 also act as antenna, reception would degrade when holding iPhone 4 in a way that would cover the bottom left corner. Apple has since announced it would give out free bumper case because of it. However the effect of degradation varies from phone to phone and from area to area. The issue is commonly referred to as "antennagate".
