In the world of Steve Jobs, everything is beautiful, wonderful, and — of course — magical. So it’s probably no surprise that, despite the fact his entire customer base says the new iPhone is horribly flawed, Jobs insists it’s fine.

The problem all comes down to the iPhone 4’s antenna: Put simply, it’s placed where a lot of people put their fingers. And that means unless you hold the phone in some sort of weird Jedi-master voodoo grip, you can’t actually make calls with the damn thing.

(Jobs’ response: “There are no reception issues.” And the famous: “Just avoid holding it in that way.”)

Well, since Apple’s not owning up to the problem, we decided to take matters into our own hands. After several days of intensive research and testing, we’re happy to report we’ve found a solution.

Behold: The simple three-step fix to solving all your iPhone 4 reception problems. It’s guaranteed to work.
