    Be interesting to see if anyone reports problems here in the UK. The dropped calls feature for holding your phone would be a bit of a downer. I suspect its a few faulty samples, they would noticed of it in development surely?

    Still don't see any reason to upgrade from me 3GS which with the new OS just makes it even better. (Couldn't afford to anyway)

    Assuming that the signal drops when you pick it up because of skin contact with the antenna band, would a rubber (or neoprene) case fix the issue?

    Would like to hear from UK guys who get their phones today, see if you get the same issues.

    YSOD? nah, not quite.

    What a poor bit of design, although hasn't making calls been a weekness of all the iphones?

    form over function

    The queue outside the O2 Holborn store was quite impressive at 8:30am. I wonder how busy the Apple store on Regent Street was..

    I queued from 7.45 till 9.20 and gave up and went to work. My friend (who i was in line with) is still there (11.36) and still hasn't got one.

    First alarm bells where when jobs was trying to demo the phone himself and by trying to connect to the internet and failed. the technicians in the back got it working and before Jobs tried to demo it again he got everyone to turn their "wi-fi devices" off cause they where interfering. Excellent stuff, go in to starbucks and tell everyone to turn their devices off cause you need the wi-fi and your iphone has to have exclusive connection.

    Why would you queue for a phone? Its not like the shop is going to run out of them.

    Actually that's exactly what is happening, most stores only got 30-40 phones so wiring was essential this morning!

    I doubt you'll ever share a starbucks with 500 mifi devices blasting out a wifi signal...

    to fix the dropped call issue - apple should realease an iphone glove. Pure white. you'll get to look like MJ too.
    Although said glove may suffer same problems as their screens......

    apparently, they dropped calls issue is fixed by using a plastic/rubber sleeve that fits round the metal ring - the one available is $29 from the apple store.

    keep drinking that kool-aid apple kids...

    No issues with mine - it's been good as gold since I picked it up this morning. Very impressed with the screen, too.

    I decided it was better to que for a couple of hours than go though having to constantly phone/visit shops over the next few weeks to try and get one.

    I've been trying to replicate the signal loss, but it is not shifting at all.
