“According to Marco Quatorze, Telcel’s Director of Value Added Services, the iPhone 4 sold in Mexico will initially be the same hardware as that sold in the U.S. and elsewhere, with Apple offering a free case to address potential issues with antenna performance. But he also noted that as of September 30th, when the free case program expires, revised hardware without the reception issues will become available,” Slivka reports.

  1. @bon:

    Also, Telcel is owned by Carlos Slim, the wealthiest man on Earth.

    When Bill Gates invested 150 millions in Apple stock in 1997, Carlos Slim invested 60 millions.

  2. This story contradicts what Steve Jobs said about this issue. It’s a common issue in the industry, not a hardware flaw. If Apple solved this common issue somehow then more power to Apple!
