Consumer Reports hears Steve Jobs' case, still can't recommend the iPhone

Did Steve Jobs convince you that the iPhone 4 antenna thing is a non-issue?  He likely did. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to convince Consumer Reports that their highest rated Smartphone should be reccomended:

Consumer Reports believes Apple’s offer of free cases is a good first step. However, Apple has indicated that this is not a long-term solution, it has guaranteed the offer only through September 30th, and has not extended it unequivocally to customers who bought cases from third-party vendors. We look forward to a long-term fix from Apple. As things currently stand, the iPhone 4 is still not one of our Recommended models.

That’s cool. So if they don’t recommend their highest rated smartphone, I guess maybe a feature phone is the way to go?
