Yup, I got myself an iPhone 4 to replace my 3GS when they came out and had no end of problems, but still (for some reason) insist on using one!
On the first one the screen was broken (a common complaint on first releases)
Second: The home button wouldn't work unless you pushed it stupidly hard
Third (my current one) is starting to develop the same home button problem...
On my older iPhone's it was mainly the vibrator switch that went insane every time you shook the phone
Kudos to the Apple store though, they just give you a new one every time!
The main thing about the iPhone 4 is the screen, it IS a whole lot better and it makes reading websites/text a considerable amount easier. As well as that the gyro (new to the iPhone 4) is actually quite cool to use in games!
Apart from that, we all know the signal issues, but they're fixing that in the next release with more insulation apparently...

I was a big BlackBerry fan for a long time, and I finally decided to Mac-ify my life by getting an iPhone 4 and a MacBook Pro. I couldn't be happier. The screen resolution is amazing. You have to hold a 4 and a 3G side-by-side to truly appreciate the quality of the screen.
I'm on my second phone, as the first one had the proximity sensor issues that have been reported on various websites. Basically, I was constantly putting the phone on mute, 3-way calling, hanging up on people, etc. with my cheek while on a call. I took it to my local Apple store, and they replaced my device without hassle. The second one works perfectly. No signal issues with either one.
Very happy with my purchase, though if you are often in areas without 3G coverage (I don't know how often that would be in the UK), the performance on an EDGE network leaves a lot to be desired.

I have one and it's on Orange. I haven't had it for very long (at all) so I can't really give you much information, but my first impression is that it is much better than a Blackberry (although i've only used the bold 9800). Everything is very user friendly and slick and the screen is absolutely beautiful.
