Reports of dropped calls are coming in from around the world. It seems as though there is a serious flaw with the new iPhone that is causing connection failures during calls. A loss of connection occurs when the iPhone attempts to move from a 3G network to a non-3G network.
USA Today is reporting that the problem may be with the 3G chipset manufactured by Infineon Technologies. AT&T and Apple are working on a software fix that will be made available remotely through iTunes. The new software could be ready as early as next week.
Apple is hoping that software can fix the troubles. If the chips or devices were damaged during manufacture the problem could be a hardware mishap. This would force Apple to recall the damaged iPhones and damage the company’s reputation.
