iPhone 4's Reception Problems Cleared Up With 50c DHgate.com Products

Share Article

The reception problems inherent in the iPhone 4 design have caused a lot of angry comments from purchasers, and have started at least one lawsuit which may turn into a class action. However, iPhone 4 owners will not need to wait for lawsuit outcomes to return their phones to a freely usable state. DHgate.com, a major China wholesale trading platform, has sellers offering iPhone 4 cases which will solve the reception problems for as little as 50 cents each.

The resale profit potential, and the burgeoning demand is undeniable

The reception problems which have marred the iPhone 4's release worldwide can be easily solved with a 50 cents product from DHgate.com, a leading China wholesale platform.

Holding the iPhone can create a bridge between the two steel bands encircling the device and change the ability of the phone to receive and transmit signals at the designated frequencies. The result is reception problems and dropped calls. Steve Jobs has indicated that there will be no updates or fixes issued for the iPhone 4, and that users should either change their hand positioning, or use an iPhone 4 case.

The iPhone 4 case sold by Apple retails for US$29. However, iPhone 4 cases on DHgate.com China wholesale platform can be found for as low as 1/60th of the price, starting at just 50 cents.

iPhone 4 case styles available on DHgate.com include:

  •     Silicone skins
  •     Hard cases
  •     Gel case covers
  •     A range of plain, colored and patterned cases
  •     Rubber bumper cases which cover only the sides of the device, mimicking Apple's 'rubber bumper cases' at around 4% of Apple's prices.

A small selection of the products is also currently available in stock at the US warehouse, meaning that delivery times are greatly reduced.

"The resale profit potential, and the burgeoning demand is undeniable", said James He of DHgate.com. "It is unfortunate that Apple won’t be fixing the phones so that they can used unhindered, yet luckily users can experience perfect reception with low-priced, widely-accessible iPhone 4 cases", Mr He continued.
