Verizon iPhone Has Antenna Trouble, Too Consumer Reports: It drops calls if held in a certain way By John Johnson, Newser Staff Posted Feb 25, 2011 3:18 PM CST 7 comments Comments A Verizon iPhone is shown the first day it was available at Verizon Wireless stores Thursday, Feb. 10, 2011, in Beachwood, Ohio. (AP Photo/Amy Sancetta) (Newser) – Remember the "you're holding it wrong" problem of last year that led to dropped calls on iPhones? Well, it applies to the new Verizon version, too, says Consumer Reports in a blog post. The magazine generally loves the phone but won't recommend it because of the antenna issue. "It can occur when you hold either version of the phone in a specific but quite natural way in which a gap in the phone's external casing is covered," the magazine explains. As with the original problem, using a case fixes the glitch.
