I was just curious as to what some of you have experienced with this phone. I got my 4s on launch day last year and as of today I'm on my fourth iPhone 4s. The first one I got had an issue with the camera light. The light was stuck on and would not turn off even when I powered off the phone. Apple replaced it once they saw it. The second phone I had, I shattered the screen in a small fit of rage one night :D My third phone I received via Fedex and after a couple of days I noticed that my volume down button on the side of the phone wasn't working. It was sticking and then it would not function at all. I took it to the apple store and they replaced it today with my fourth new iPhone. I have had an iPhone since the first generation and I've never had to replace one. I was just curious to know a few others experience's to see if maybe someone else has had more phones replaced then I have.

Two. My first one had the camera vibrating thing where when you put it down on something, you could hear a noise coming from around the camera. Replacement still does it...

I have had good luck (knock on wood) with the 4 and 4S. Only needed one of each (well, so far). The 3GS was the rough one for me. Dead pixels, dust under glass, etc. I replaced that model 4-5 times.

I've been lucky as well. I just hope I don't ever mess up my flawless iPhone.

Two. First one was AT&T . I wanted to try out an android phone on Verizon's LTE network and well that didn't last for more than two weeks. Now I'm back with a 4S , but this time on Verizon's network

Up til last week I was using my 4s that I got launch day. Decoded to try out Verizon's LTE network like the other guy but I didn't like Android. Went back to AT&T and bought the unlocked white 32GB iphone.

I've had one 3G, one 3Gs, one 4, and now one 4S. Not a single one of them has been replaced. Guess I've been lucky (knock on wood).

One 4S so far.

Before that I had one 3G, and five 3GS's. I'm hoping the 3GS was a blip!

two 4s, couple 4's, but 3GS was never replaced and the home button even works as new which isn't something that can be said for the 4 and bet will happen with the 4s.

2 - First ones home button was very hard to press and would go off center badly (the square on the home button would be 30 degrees off). Very strange. No problems with the one that replaced it :)

on my second due to quality issues, was dust under my old ones screen, and there was glue visible around the besel where the glass meets the edge.

needless to say my refurb is perfect...

Got mine launch day, just got back from the Apple Store tonight with my first replacement. The back glass was loose and better died by 4PM. Very happy with my replacement, we'll see how the battery is.

My dad just had one, but he returned it within a couple weeks. Siri was so disappointing.

I'm on my second since 14/10/2011. Returned the first as the battery was worse than my 3GS!

I'm just waiting for 5.1 to settle after the battery has been discharged a few times...

At least your contract is 24 months. In Canada it's 36 months (3 years). I had to wait 2 1/2 years before I could upgrade from a iPhone 3G to the 4S. I finally did today and I'm happy. Just hope this InvisibleSHEILD thing works out.

I'm on my second 4S. I returned the one that I got on launch day from AT&T to wait for the GSM factory unlocked 4S that I am using now. This one is perfect, even has better battery life than my first one.
