What are the odds of an Apple iPhone 4 recall?

What are the odds of an Apple iPhone 4 recall? Not that good if you ask bookmaker expert Mickey Richardson, CEO of Bookmaker.com. Richardson and his team of experienced odds makers, have put together lines for television shows such as Project Runway, Top Chef, Lost, and Dancing with the Stars, and now they’ve turned their attention to the iPhone and the latest series of reception problem “rumors” as Apple calls them.

So, what are the odds that Apple will fess up to a problem and initiate a recall before July 31st?

Any long time Apple fan shouldn’t find these results surprising, and, given Steve Jobs’ change in public stance on the issue from “don’t hold it that way” and “Get a case” to “There is no problem”, it looks like Apple is fully preparing to go the denial route. Still, there could be a chance to make some big money if you have faith in Apple doing the right thing.

    Where is the option for no way in hell?

    I think they would, if it wasn’t so sure to damage their almost perfect reputation of non-recalls…

  3. Andy says:

    Recall? Hahahahahah!

    i don’t see why some of you are dismissing a recall. Apple never experienced a “Red Ring of Death” in their product launch – and they could easily afford this setback.

    and i’ll be waiting for those recalled iPhones to hit the refurb store…

    There is NO chance that Apple will issue a recall on 2 million (by now) iPhones.

    If Anandtech is right, the antennae actually perform better than previous iPhones, so there is no reason for a recall. Even if there was something Apple could fix, since not all people are experiencing the problem they’d be more likely to do some kind of warranty-extension program instead.

    Recall? Not a chance.
