    Ok so lately my iPhone has been glitching badly. It had 0 gb of space for about 3 months and i finally cleared some space but my phone has been glitching and stuff. Not to mention it started shocking me about 1-2 weeks ago. So i was in the car today and i was jokingly video taping my mom and she grabbed my phone and squeezed it hard for like 20-25 seconds really really hard!!! I got so worried because can't squeezing a phone really hard damage the phone internally and make the phone shock me even more now!? will damaging it internally or squeezing it make it shock me more or cause it to emit electricity? ALSO, i got a new phone in the mail due to this faulty phone. I just plugged in my current glitched phone to my mac mini to backup. My new phone is almost ready to go. This may sound like a silly question but if i plug the new phone in with the same charger into my mac mini, will it make that phone become glitchy and emit electricity? Also will my mac mini be affected. For some reason i feel that if the phone is shocking me then maybe it will put the shock into the mac mini or something or in my charger so any phone that is charged into that will start shocking?

    When you say your Fone is "shocking" you, what exactly are you feeling? A buzzing in your hand throughout extending throughout the fingers or is it more like the kind of sharp static electric shock you sometimes get when you walk across the carpet and then touch a grounded metal object?

    The reason I ask is that other posters have said that their Fones are "shocking" them and, with Apple stating the rated battery voltage is only 3.8v, it's highly unlikely that that low a voltage would "shock" you, even if an internal capacitor had failed and was grounding to the antenna band.

    And to assuage you fears about "transference" of the shocking effect, no, the laws of physics prohibit the transference of the possibility of one item passing this "situation" from one device to another. It's not like a retrovirus - if anything it would be classed as a materials failure.
