    iPhone threads need to be cleaned up. People constantly posting the SAME questions in different threads, and the questions have already been answered. Maybe a post with how to use the search function? Log in, look at the first page of posts, and they are all posts, with the same exact questions (when will i get my phone, why is the order pushed back).....

    This is how it often is after a new product is announced. The most effective way to help us keep things clean is to report threads you feel should be merged (including the URL of the thread into which you feel it should be merged is a big help).

    Unfortunately most people don't read stickies, and it already states in the rules that members should search. So post reports really are the best way to go. There's no way the volunteer moderators can see the thousands of new posts made daily, so they're dependent on reports.
