Book of Jobs

Congregation.

Brothers and sisters.

Please turn to Chapter 7,
verses 24-29 of the Book of Jobs.

“The prophet in black came down
from the mountain and gave the
people holy relics.”

“The people raised their voices
to spread the good word.”

“But there was only silence.”

“The people looked to the prophet
in black for advice.”

“He gazed down up the people and said:
YOU’RE HOLDING IT WRONG.”

I have personal testament in regards
to the biblical controversy now known
as “Antennagate”.

I ordered the iPhone 4 for my beloved
wife as an anniversary present. 

Every AT&T store was sold
out of this highly prized item.

So we waited…

and waited…

and waited…

While in the queue, I read some early
reviews of my wife’s phone to be.

There were articles and videos claiming
the iPhone 4 had a problem with poor
reception. 

Apple downplayed the allegations,
stating performance had to do with
the way users held the phone.

According to Engadget, Steve Jobs emailed
one upset user, “Just avoid holding it
that way.”

Still, I held out hope, and waited…

The iPhone showed up on July 12, the same
day Consumer Reports said it could not
recommend the phone due to poor reception.

Great…

Why did I believe the false prophet in black?

Because the rest of the “phone”
is outstanding!

The screen is brilliant, the camera is great,
e-mail was a snap and navigation is easy and
intuitive.

It just can’t… make… calls… worth a darn.

On July 16, Steve Jobs, wearing his trademark
black shirt, held a press conference to address
the issue.

Apple gave all iPhone 4 users a free
insulating bumper, normally 30 dollars.

We ordered the bumper from a free
iPhone app the company provided.
Unfortunately, it was going to take 3-6 weeks.

So we waited…

and waited…

and waited…
Finally the bumper arrived, and imagine that,
we could make a phone call! 

(no matter how we held it)
Amen

p.s.  If you someone you know has an iPhone 4,
be sure to order your bumper soon. 

You only have until September 30th to order
the cure to your reception woes!
