    Hi All,

    My ultimate question is do I have Apple replace the phone or not. Let me give a quick run down of what happened so you can tell me what you would do.


    1) A few days after I got the phone it hung up, only on data, had full bars 3g but was getting the eroor "not connected to the internet". A hard reboot fized this

    2) last weekend it blew up my photo library and went into t a"rebuild" mode. Didnt lose anything but thought it was wierd.

    3) yesterday I get a text from the wife, I respond, it will not go through. I was on a rooftop so I waited till I got down t the lobby and tries again. Nope won't go through. I check my email, I get "Not connected to the internet" error message same issue as #1. I hard reset, it comes back and I send the text messages fine.

    4) A few minutes later my phone buzzes in the case and I think I am getting a call.. I pull the phone out to find it completely dead except stuck in a constant vibrate mode. Noting worked to reset it or stop it.

    Needless to say it vibrated with a blank screen for 4 hours until the battery went dead just as I was arriving at the Apple store to get it replaced. They said it was a software issue because I restored from a 3G and reset the unit. I was pissed because the p[hone got VERY VERY hot suring this time and the vibration motor now has a rattle. I made them order me a knew phone as they were "OUT".

    To replce or not to replace with the new one when it arrives?

    Set up as "new" phone and see what it does over a few days of use. If still glitchy, I'd replace.

    obviously you should replace it.

    why keep a phone that doesn't work? :confused:

    you should replace it.
    the only thing is you might be waiting for the replacement cause of the stock issue on the iPhone 4.

    I would definitely get a replacement device. Hey, if you wait a couple more weeks, you can maybe get a white one :D
