Happy to know I am not the only one to have done this. I did the exact same thing on the original iPhone.

When the genius guy at the Apple store was setting my new 5 up for me, he specifically warned me that there wasn't a cut out over the speaker. Apparently this happens alot!

Add me to that list, had the speaker turned up all the way. Also had to cut the cover over the home button.

I do this all the time. My girlfriend has my old 4S now and once and a while she'll want to play with my 5 so I give it to her..seconds later I'm feeling my pockets and am scared when I can't find my 5

There's a guy I work with that doesn't understand changing orientation is as simple as rotating the phone. He stands with his hand wrapped around the phone flicking it back and forth because he thinks it needs some kind of momentum to 'push' the screen into another orientation. Even after I showed him how to do it, the next time he went right back to flicking...

I was on the verge of taking my brand new Iphone 4 back to apple for a replacement because the "HD" video was all blurry and not crisp like they claimed it would be. Well while videotaping I had an ah ha moment and removed the plastic film half way through the movie and felt like the biggest idiot. I still have that video for the nostalgia.

I'm guilty of this one Although I didn't take it into an Apple Store, I looked it up online.

Taking a photo and realizing I'm taking a video. Frustrating! But, definitely a "duh" moment.

Because of the shape it hasn't mattered as much before, but all apple earbuds have had specific left and right buds.

I know a parent who for some reason was sharing the same Apple ID as their teenager. The parent had a few inappropriate photos in their photo stream, which then appeared on the teenager's phone.

I have broke both my iPhones the same way, and in the same place. I will be holding it in my hand, going out to the car with my mother, and then will be standing around in our tile sunroom waiting, and then she'd take forever to come out, then ask me to come in, then BAM! I drop my phone because she startles me while I'm looking at it for whatever reason.

That's pretty funny. I guess it's time to put carpet in the sun room!

So when I got my iPhone 4, I was paranoid about dropping it, so I bought an Otterbox Defender case for it.

Then one day I reach for my phone in my pocket, but because the rubbery outer coating of the Defender case is a bit "sticky", it was a bit tricky to remove from my pocket as it stuck to the fabric. I pull a bit harder and it suddenly lets go, and flies out of my hands and across the room, landing on the rug.

I started using an Otterbox Commuter case instead from that day on

Oh, and I too have made the mistake of thinking I was recording a great video clip when in fact it was NOT recording.

It was the most beautiful fireworks show I've ever seen, and I'm still sad I didn't get a single second of it on video

Hardware: Going into an Apple store to complain about one of the speakers not working and finding out one of them is the mic.

Let me hear yours!
You know how many times I have had a customer try to bring back an iPhone for one of the speakers being out? I always have to gently tell them one is a mic without trying to make them feel too stupid. I had a guy argue with me about it once. I told him to call me and I had to cover the one side while talking to him to prove it.

Another person tried to return their phone because they said it constantly lost signal, but the weird thing was it was only happening at her boyfriends house. Turns out her boyfriend basically lived in a cabin clear the hell in some mountains...
