Apple has released official advice for iPhone 4 owners to overcome the problem of the device losing signal when held by the lower left corner.

Steve Jobs responded to a query about the problem from one owner by saying: "Just avoid holding it in that way."

The official advice is to "avoid gripping it in the lower left corner in a way that covers both sides of the black strip in the metal band".

so there you have it, it's not apples fault, its yours if you hold their new phone in your left hand, however apple will SELL you some additional bumpers that improve (but dont cure) the issue which is kind of them ;)
