    well in the past month and a half i've had to get my iphone replaced weekly. The first one i bought had major screen issues and was flickering and giving me all these colors, i went in and they replaced it.

    The 2nd iphone, i was driving home and tried making a phone call..The phone froze and didn't turn back on for about two hours and was dropping calls I went in and they said i was dropping more than 50% of calls and they replaced it

    And now, My 3rd iphone is constantly dropping my every first call i attempt in between a few hours period, It will freeze and say i have no service, It revives and service is restored, And the camera doesn't work unless i do a hard reset about 2 or 3 times. And once i close the camera app i'd have to reset again

    Is there something that can be done? Making a trip to the apple store is pretty far and i work almost everyday and if i'm not working i'm at my classes, ATT won't do anything. Are they gunna start sucking me off or something cause frankly i'm tired of making trips there

    These posts always remind me of the person who says on an Xbox forum how they've had 7 consoles RROD. Really, you got four bad phones? Really? Fishy...

    Yes, i have. Nothing to be suspicious about it? and trust me i'd rather not drive all the way to the apple store Now 7 consoles with RROD is a bit fishy

    So, after this one you've only got 3 more to attain fishy status.
    Do you emit some kind of radiation?

    That really sucks. Test it before you leave the store. As for the rrod on the Xbox, I've used my same Xbox almost everyday for the last three years usually a few hours a day and have only had 1 light come on ( general hardware failure). I started looking on craigslist for another Xbox and found a guy who said he fixes them. Took it to him, he cleaned her out and put stronger cooling fans in it and it's been good to go ever since. Sure it sounds like a harrier taking off, but it works and thats all I care about, lol!!!!
