    So instead of 1800-Applecare we should just call 911 with any iphone issues :D

    The Kendall County Sherrifs are investigating the battery issues as we speak.

    I think they should sentence the guy to 1 year of having all 911 calls routed through his iPhone. Every time someone calls 911 in his town, his iPhone would ring, with the Crazy Frog ringtone, full volume, mute disabled, and the phone must be with him at all times. Seems fair.

    I worried this guy has made an honest mistake. If you were really intoxicated it could be easy to mistake MAC part of the 133MAC number as a 911 if the phone was upside down and he mistook the 1 for a 2 and when the cops came he got upset as you do when consuming large amounts of alcohol with a malfunctioning iPhone and Apple gets the cops to come around and hassle you.

    I don't think we should be jumping to conclusions when this could just be a simple drunken mistake.

    Wow that's a dumb reason to call the police. No wonder he was arrested.

    The last one has got to be the dumbest.

    It's okay, I'm out now.

    I was a little drunk, holding my iPhone upside down, dialed 911 instead of 611. [​IMG]
