Antenn-Aid: a Band-Aid Solution for the iPhone 4 Antenna

by Paul Strauss

So by now, the entire universe knows that Steve Jobs offered up free bumpers and cases for iPhone 4 users to help them with dropped calls from the so called “death grip” issue if you touch the lower left side of the iPhone while making a call. While I appreciate the gesture, here’s a much simpler and less wasteful solution, which manages to be both practical and amusing at the same time.


These whimsical Antenna-aid stickers fit perfectly on the corner of your iPhone 4, covering up the extra-sensitive metal spots, all the while poking fun at the overblown problem. For just 99 cents, you’ll get two Antenn-aid stickers, and you can choose from a variety of colors. Personally, I’m going with the peach one. You can grab a set over at Antenn-aid’s Etsy shop now.

Or if you happen to have a box of those tiny fingertip Band-aids sitting in your first-aid kit you could probably achieve the same thing for free.

    AAPL/Jobs has forever been lying and dishonest about their security issues and malfunctioning products, then blame the consumers and media.
    AAPL/Jobs has lied about the antena malfunction.
    AAPL/Jobs has lied about the nasty emails to customers
    AAPL/Jobs has been more dishonest and ruthless and selfish than the Chinese communist regime.
    If it was any other company they would have been in more hot water than AAPL is right now.

    iPhone4 is a marketting gimmic. It is not capable of running on 4G network and does not run on 4G network. Only EVO 4G and soon coming Samsung Epic 4G runs on 4G network
    AAPL/Jobs has been forgiven all the time for all wrongs, including on your face lies, and 3rd party blame game.

    iPhone4 has a serious defect, it’s a malfunctioning phone, dropping calls and signals. Worse it has been iFAKING signals. Thats fraud, showing signals when there isn’t, Jobs admited to that.

    Consumer report said not to buy iPhone4 because of it’s serious defect. What if 911 Droped calls causes real deaths?

    • tom says:

      I am sure you don’t own an iPhone and you are here just “pile on” with your ignorant mis-information. I do own an iPhone and I can say I have 0 drop calls and working even better than my last HTC phone. I am not a fanboy here. I am here to state the fact. Just to answer couple of accusation…

      1) “iFaking Signals” – Every mobile phone “pad” their signal strength. It’s not unique to iPhone. At least Apple have the gut to admit that and fixed it. See this chart: http://images.anandtech.com/reviews/gadgets/apple/iPhone4/part2/signalbarmapping.jpg

      2) Consumer Report didn’t state “not to buy iPhone 4 because of it’s serious defect”. The fact is Consumer Report rated iPhone 4 as the best phone.

    The Iphone 4 released late last month, shows that it has many problems. This is the first model that Apple has failed in all aspects. Hope they will resolve the issues as early as possible.
