    Default Good News??

    THOSE WHO WERE CRAZY enough to stump up the cash for O2's rendition of the Apple iFawn are starting to complain that the phone's reception is causing them no end of trouble - under strange circumstances.

    The issue has come to light via Apple's always-helpful discussion forums (criticise the establishment too much and watch your post disappear).

    Users are reporting that the issue isn't with O2's network coverage, with standard O2 phones getting full service in an area and the Iphone struggling to barely pick up one, let alone latch onto the much-touted Edge service. Users have even reported that docking the Iphone immediately boosts the signal up to three or four bars - suggesting that the antenna in the UK models is not getting enough power to adequately connect.

    So far O2 appears to be shunting the problem to Apple and Apple appears to be ignoring it. Some users have reported that replacing the phone has fixed the problem, others say that restoring to the out-of-box firmware will do the trick, while more report that neither has solved their signal woes.

    A bad batch of phones, a cruddy network or a bunch of hacked off early adopters? We wouldn't bet against all three.
    maybe a firmware upgrade can fix this! and other things!

    No, firmware will not solve the reception issue: it is the antenna hardware layout.

    The reason why the Europeans have this issue more then the US people, is because we use different frequencies then they do and the antenna layout favors the US frequencies.
