Consumer Reports magazine said Monday it can’t recommend the iPhone 4 to shoppers because of persistent reception issues caused by touching the Apple Inc. phone.

The products-review magazine, viagra sale capsule on its website, viagra generic prostate also questioned Apple’s explanation for the glitch, saying it tested other smartphones in its labs, including the older iPhone 3GS, and “none of those phones had the signal-loss problems of the iPhone 4.”

“Our findings call into question the recent claim by Apple that the iPhone 4’s signal-strength issues were largely an optical illusion caused by faulty software that ‘mistakenly displays 2 more bars than it should for a given signal strength.’ Consumer Reports said.

Apple wasn’t immediately available to comment.

I have to say, I absolutely love mine. But I’m not a lefty and I’ve been using a bumper since I bought it.

    Didn’t they say you can use duck tape to solve the problem? Ahh, duck tape, what problem can’t it solve?

    For the record, It’s duct tape.

    1001 uses. It’s first use was sealing air ducts.

    p.s. Habitat for Humanity volunteers use it for name tags. Doesn’t sweat off.

    Actually, duct tape was invented during WWII and was used by the military for sealing ammo cases and light repairs, and the soldiers called it duck tape. It wasn’t until after the war that it was applied to ductwork and got its modern name.
