    Does the iPhone have static electricity or something? I touched the screen and recieved a shock. Like the kind you get when you rub your socks across a carpet.

    Does it happen only when it is plugged into the charger?

    If it is a static charge then you should get rid of that when you touch the phone to pick it up.

    What kind of case are you using, if any?

    Seeing as how you stated how disappointed you were that Siri wasn't alive (in that other thread), maybe she's pissed at you and is sending you the shock??

    Iphone4 and 4s do give shocks have posted "iphone electric shock"

    I got shocked myself read all the posts and after some basic testing have a video on youtube "iphone electric shock" showing that they do give mild electric shocks every iphone I have tested has given similar voltage.
