He spent his 'hard earned cash' for a new and perfect product, and that's exactly what he received. I don't see any complaints about it coming out of the box with the damage.

Would you expect Apple to replace your iPhone 5 for free if you ran over it with your car one hour after you bought it?




Why don't you answer that question yourself: do you get others to pay for your own mistakes?

You sound really naïve. Paying for your own mistakes is in fact how the world works. If you think others are responsible for your carelessness, then you don't know as much about the world as you think you do.


hahaha, this is hilarious. Let me give you an example, i recieved an iphone 5 on Thursday. it came with a messed up home button where it would click without pressing it. it came with a small liveable scuff, it came with horrible battery life issues, and it came with wifi issues. So, now one week later, i took off my case for the day and ironically got a huge scratch on the back and many hariline scratches on the front. So im planning on getting it replaced this weekend.

So should i not replace it because of the damage i caused to it by accident? should i not return it because many things are wrong with it rendering it almost unuseable but submitted damage to the phone?

really think about what you are saying.

Also about the thing saying the world doesnt wprk this way, I dont know if you live outside of the us, because i didnt check where u r from from ur info. however, the usa just elected socialist president barack obama, so pretty much the government will cobver your m intakes as long as your poor.

Why don't you think about what you're saying? Completely different scenario.

Your iPhone 5 had issues right out of the box. There are usability issues there which were not your fault. Go right ahead and get it replaced- after all, you're not getting it replaced due to the scratch, you're getting it replaced due to the battery life and Wi-Fi issues.

OP's iPod was not scuffed from the factory. He paid for a new and pristine product and that's exactly what he received. He caused all of the damage on the device himself, and that's where my issue with your suggestion lies.

You see the difference?

The government = a private corporation? Damaged iPod = free health care? Seriously poor analogy there.

Ask yourself this. If you bought a new car and hit a pole with it two days later, would you expect BMW to repair it for free?

What if you bought a new house, and you accidentally broke a window while playing baseball outside? Would you expect ReMax to replace the window for free?

I just got my Yellow 32GB and saw two.

This is a PITA to deal with and will be going back, my Black 32GB iPad Mini had one too but I wasn't impressed so I went with the touch.

Not really Yellow, like Nokia Lumia 920. It doesn't look good TBH which is the other reason I'm exchanging it. I might get Blue.
