Are you satisfied with Apple's answer to the iPhone 4 antenna problem? PCWorld for instance is not. The publication has removed the iPhone 4 from their Top 10 cell phone chart after the press-conference and Consumer Reports, who can be credited to have triggered the press-conference, is still not recommending the iPhone 4.

CNET has polled close to 6,000 readers on the Apple answer of giving out free bumpers to solve the antenna issues. The results are mixed. 36% happily accept a free bumper, 28% consider returning the iPhone 4 and the rest did not experience the problem or is keeping the phone.

A day after the press-conference, Apple has managed to satisfy a third of iPhone 4 customers with a free case. Another third and the press are still not happy.
