San Francisco (GaeaTimes.com) - iPhone 4 problems have shown up on very first day of its launch and it seems that people are demanding a recall of the iPhone 4 to fix the problems. iPhone 4 recall is a trending topic on Google as many people are searching for the news about the iPhone 4 recall. There is no official information about the recall of iPhone 4 but DailyMail.Co.Uk posted an article stating that Apple’s Steve Jobs posted a message on social networking site twitter,


We may have to recall the new iPhone. This I did not expect.

But the profile on which this message was posted is found to be a fake profile. This is a common phenomenon on Twitter and it is notorious for spreading many daily rumors on the web. One erroneous statement on twitter then leads to thousands of rumor tweets. The Daily Mail article is also withdrawn from their website after the incident but it is still posted on many syndication sites and scrapper pages.

However, to many people, it seemed quite natural that Apple could do a recall of the iPhone 4 because of the many reported problems of Signal dropping when one touches the metal antenna band and discolored display. Some complains have also surfaced about wrong volume control buttons on the top left side of the phone. In their phone the (+) and (-) buttons for their volume controls were reversed. When they are pressing the (-) button, the volume increases and the volume decreases when they press (+) button. Though this is not a big issue but still it is a matter of concern if you are a perfectionist.
