An experiment to test the antenna issue

Hello everyone,

I've been on a watching this whole Apple issue regardig the iPhone and its all linking to the antenna system.

As some reports stated, what could solve this issue would be for the antenna to have an insulative coating to prevent any bridging of the antennas. Would it be possible if ifixit to try this possible solution as if it is, I might consider purchasing one and try this experiment as well.

Tape should work fine. Consumer Reports said nonconductive tape fixed their issue.

iBand Aid fixes iPhone4 antenna problems.

iBand Aid Antenn-aid for iPhone 4 is a custom sized vinyl sticker for your iPhone 4. When placed over the lower left corner of the antenna it may improve signal performance.

Antenn-aids act as a Band-Aid for iPhones

and are designed to be placed over the lower left corner of the antenna, in the area where the signal dropping issues occur.

Almost any mobile phone in certain ways will reduce its reception by 1 or more bars. This is true of iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, as well as many Droid, Nokia and RIM phones. But some users have reported that iPhone 4 can drop 4 or 5 bars when tightly held in a way which covers the black strip in the lower left corner of the metal band.

Gorgeous colors

Each iBand Aid package has seven gorgeous colored stickers. Colours: patch, silver, dark gray, turquoise, lime, pink and white

Antenna-aids come in a range of colours letting users colour-coordinate their bandage, and they?re being offered for sale in packs of seven for 4.95.

Truly the only reason the iPhone 4 lost 4 bars was because there formula was wrong for the strength otherwise everything else was fine
