Not content with shipping a phone that cuts you off if you use it in your left hand, and then lying about the problem being a minor display issue, it now turns out that the proximity sensor does not work.
The phone is supposed to tell if you are holding the phone to your ear.
Users said that the iPhone sensor works when you cover it with your finger but has a problem when it comes close to an Apple fanboy’s face.
The screen blinks as if it cannot decide to disable the screen or enable it. It hangs up calls, puts them on mute, and dials numbers accidentally while the user is on the phone.
One user said that it occurs on 90 percent of his calls.
Another said that Apple need to fix this problem as it is making the phone unusable.
One person claimed to have a fix by resetting the phone. But he warns that resetting all loses a lot of settings, not just all wi-fi. It removes all website logins, all clock settings, all mail setup (except the accounts) and more.
It seems to us that it is time for Apple and its legion of fanboys to realise that the overpriced iPhone 4 is broken and needs to be recalled and fixed. Of course it is not going to happen, people will queue for a dog turd if it has an Apple logo on it. It would be nice if, just this once, the government stepped in to save Apple fanboys from themselves and ordered Jobs’ Mob to stop flogging dodgy gear that does not work.
