    I am not seeing this, does it happen when you are on a call or just holding it.

    Man, you guys have to check out iMovie for the iPhone 4. It's limited as a movie editor but great for puting together some decent little flicks for upload to YouTube. You can insert transition, titles, and any music from your iPod.

    Just holding it will cause it to do that. I'm not too worried since the phone's going in a silicone case at some point. I read at Apple's site if you have dry skin the situation might not be as big a deal.

    I'm still trying to figure how to get video captured from my iPhone onto my computer. I currently am having to email videos to myself. Do you have insight as to how to do this? My videos didn't show up when syncing.

    PC or MAC?

    If its a PC, you should be able to navigate to the storage on your iPhone via "my computer".

    Mac. I'll try using the Finder to navigate around when I get home. It didn't occur to me that it might show up as USB device in the OS X (Leopard) Finder. Here's to hoping... :)

    What was botched was the fact that ATT evidently made changes to their database structure 3 days before the on sale date of the new iPhone and did not adequately test everything. This led to massive screw ups in the pre-order process. ATT talked about how many account inquireies they processed like it was a badge of honor. I bet they would have had a third or even fewer inquiries if their system was not constantly glitching causing the need to do most of the steps over.

    I got mine, I lined up last night at the Southpoint Apple store in Durham, NC at 10:45 PM last night (about 60th in line) and I got into the store at about 11:15 AM. It was pretty busy with about 300 people there at 7:00 AM. I feel for some of the late arrivals as they are baking in 100 degree heat with no shade on most of the line route by now. Looks like most of the people who got there were able to secure an iPhone 4, but a few were turned away once they got a count.

    My screen looks fine from what I can tell at this time and it seems I naturally hold th ephone in a way that hopefully will not cause the reception isue. We'll see.

    WHat was really funny to me was the several peopel who came to teh Apple store to just look around today. One woman asked if it was like this there every day.

    Yep. iPhoto or "Image Capture". You don't want to email the videos to yourself. The phone is compressing them first.

    Got up at 4:20 this morning, picked up my buddy, and we were at the Apple Store by 5AM. The lines were absolutely ridiculous. I have never seen lines like that in my life. The Apple Store is centrally located in the middle of an outdoor strip. There was a line to the left of the store for reservations, and the line to the right was for everyone else. Both lines were almost to the end of the shopping strip when we got there, and well past the ends and wrapping around the building by the time we left.

    The store opened at 7AM, and we were done by 9:30. I have no doubt in my mind that the people at the ends of those lines are going to be there the majority of the day. There were probably ~2,000 people there. It was nuts.

    I'm very impressed. My screen is flawless... and looks ridiculously good. I'm not able to recreate the reception issue, but I do have a bumper on it. FaceTime is very slick as well. Just downloaded iMovie... I'm gonna have to go shoot some video so I can edit it now. :)

    Great to hear you got one Greg. It seems like with Apple devices lately, if you don't get one on the first day, you won't see one for quite a while.

    I've been reading about the battery draining so quickly. On the Apple site they mention it may take a few charge cycles to normalize the charge sensor. Before I go crazy about losing half my battery while on standby ..... :lol:

    Thanks for the tips on bringing in video.
    I'm hoping I can import video straight into Final Cut Pro. I'll know soon enough...

    I am using my phone without a bumper (plan on getting one soon) and have definitely noticed the service signal drop. From article and YouTube videos it appears to be from touching the left side and the bottom of the phone. Anyone else here seeing that?

    From 4 or 5 bars 3G to 1 bar of E or no service is what I see

    Yes, as with the iPhone's in the past, it takes a few charge cycles before the battery life gets better.

    Yes, I see it when I take my silicon cover off. Don't see it at all when the cover is on. Glad I picked up the cover at Best Buy last weekend. :)
