這大半年來,由於許多人發現寫信給 Steve Jobs 大多都可獲得回應,於是也有人把最近 iPhone 4 的左手持機影響天線造成斷訊問題的事件去詢問 Jobs :

Hi Steve,

So, um, just got my iPhone 4. Its lovely and all, but this 'bridge the two antennae to kill your reception' thing seems to be a bit serious. If I bridge them with my hand or with a piece of metal the bars slowly drop to 'Searching...' and then 'No Service'.

Its kind of a worry. Is it possible this is a design flaw?


- Rory Sinclair

結果 Jobs 的回應十分簡單,就是:

Nope. Just don't hold it that way.

然後這位 Sinclair 不死心,繼續追問是否這就是蘋果官方的保護套的存在原因:

Actually, its not calls that concern me, but i've just been writing a text and its very natural for me as a right-handed person to hold it that way, with the part of my hand at the base of my thumb covering the point the antennae meet, and it kills the reception each time.

I mean, pretty much as soon as i move my hand it comes back, but its pretty crazy... is this the reason Bumpers exist?

- Rory

結果 Jobs 依然簡單地回應:

Just don't hold it that way then.

Sinclair 似乎不太爽了,繼續堅持其看法:

Well, yeah, thats what i'll do, but you have to admit thats a workaround, yeah? I mean, normally there aren't limits to how you can hold a phone.

I seriously dig the phone, its totally amazing, but I think this is what many would call a design flaw.

- Rory

Jobs 則表示,其實若干天線的限制在一般手機都可以見到,某些手機甚至於還直接告訴消費者,不可遮蔽到手機的某些部位:

Sure there are - every phone has these areas of sensitivity, depending on the location of the antenna. Some phones even ship with labels warning customers to not cover certain areas with their hands.
