Within hours of Apple’s iPhone release, many users have complained of the iPhone 4 reception problem. And now, an official statement from Steve Jobs regarding this.

“Gripping any phone will result in some attenuation of its antenna performance, with certain places being worse than others depending on the placement of the antennas. This is a fact of life for every wireless phone,” reads the official Apple statement.

“If you ever experience this on your iPhone 4, avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band, or simply use one of many available cases,” the statement concludes.
