After minimizing the iPhone 4’s antenna issues on its Electronics Blog 10 days ago, Consumers Reports made news Monday by announcing that it could not recommend Apple’s (AAPL) newest smartphone phone after all. It had reexamined the signal attenuation problem and determined that it was real.

Then it did something unusual: It offered a funky, “affordable” workaround.

“Cover the antenna gap with a piece of duct tape or another thick, non-conductive material. It may not be pretty, but it works. We also expect that using a case would remedy the problem. We’ll test a few cases this week and report back.”

And so ConsumerReports.org joins the dozens of sites that have found inexpensive ways to make the iPhone’s so-called Death Grip problem go away.
