'Consumer Reports' Test: Faults iPhone 4 Antenna
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
And our last word in business today: mixed reception.
The latest version of the iPhone hit the market with a bang, but yesterday, Consumer Reports said it is not recommending the iPhone 4 because of reception problems. Testers confirmed a well-known gripe, which is when you hold the phone a certain way, the reception deteriorates.
Testers say you can fix the problem by covering the troubled spot on the lower left side of the device with duct tape. If you don't like that look, Consumer Reports recommends buying an older iPhone model, the 3GS, which works just fine without the tape.
That's the business news on MORNING EDITION, from NPR News. I'm Renee Montagne.
