    Hey guys,
    I recently bought an iPhone and had a screen issue with it where one strip along the bottom doesn't work anymore. I'm in Canada and can't get it fixed. I'm totally okay with that, but before I buy a new one I want to see what the prevalence of serious issues like mine is.

    Thanks for posting!

    I had a Day 1 (never jailbroken) 8GB. I never had any problems!!
    I sold it last month thinking the 3G would be launched at the keynote. :(

    Thanks a lot for your replies. I'm really just trying to get a feeling about spending for a new one. I love the interface so much, and now using a Razr is really difficult. I'd really only be out $100 because I'm selling my broken one. I'd love to hear from more people.

    Thanks!

    What were the other issues?, I seem to have that overheating problem as well :(

    Also have a total of 5 iPhones in my household, only 1 has had any major problems. A jailbroken unlocked one, mysteriously just stopped getting signal and couldn't get a network connection. restored to factory took it to store and it was replaced after that.

    I'm curious, do you guys keep your phones in cases, or not? I'm just really bummed about my defective unit. Now to actually find a new iPhone.

    For about the first 6 or 7 months i would religiously cover it in a cloth just so that nothing would scratch. But never like a case. Why would I want to uglify such a beautiful product.

    My current iPhone 8GB is a replacement I received in Oct '07, due to my original developing a software glitch, in which the screen flickered a number of times and then went blank. It came back online, but I was a few minutes from the Apple Store and picked-up this one. My first had heating issues and the speaker quality was extremely poor. No problems with my current iPhone. :cool:

    I've had my iPhone since January without any problems. I am currently using the Griffin Wave as my case for it. I like it alot. Makes it less slippery and doesn't add too much bulk.

    I (as I'm sure everyone else does too) get the hot iPhone when browsing on Safari on it for too long.

    No significant problems since I've had it. Safari crashes here and there, but it's expected and a known issue. I get a temporary lock down where the phone quasi-freezes and slows down for 10-15 seconds or so, but nothing huge. Just minor crashes here and there. No, it is not jailbroken nor has it ever been.

    I use my iPhone pretty extensively, and I actually use every single one of the native applications on it on a daily basis (well, maybe not the camera :p ).
