Hello all, I don't usually post much but so many of your posts have helped me macke many decisions in the past, and I felt this may affect some choices others make in a positive way. I am certainly an iphone lover, I got one 2 weeks after the 3G had been released here in Switzerland, but lost it in an airport only months later. After a while of trying to get used to another windows mobile phone a friend had lent me, I decided to just go purchase another 3G iphone, THIS TIME AT FULL PRICE. Starting 11 days after purchase, several times a day I would notice 2 green stuck pixels on my display, and also a small section of the display that was SLIGHTLY darker than the rest. I decided to go try and get myself a replacement new phone on the 13th day according to my receipt. WRONG! I just left Orange (my provider here) and they have sent my phone out for REPAIR, with NO POSSIBILITY for replacement, after paying full price for this device, essentially I will receive back a REFURBISHED PHONE, in every sense of the word! To be quite honest, this is appalling and outrageous. Any electronic device I own (and it's a lot, I work daily in a sound studio) , if there is a problem so soon after purchase, any shop is happy to replace the defective item. I did some research on the web and this is a common defect, and it is exactly that, a DEFECT. I got Apple Support on the phone just now, and they said this is just the way it is. Wow, really disappointed in Apple. I will still use my iphone happily when it comes back, BUT now I know their true colors, and what kind of scummy policies they have. That is shameful.
