    Call me crazy, call me whatever you like.... But my iPhone shocks you when you touch the metal band. I was just talking on the phone and it was shocking the **** out me. Will apple replace it? It's still under warranty.

    It's called static electricity.

    Should I laugh at the hilarious assumption or should I cry over the ignorant state of people?

    try touching a metal surface and then touch your Iphone. see if that happens again. if so go see a genius and see what he thinks.

    You might as well add "good luck with the genius"

    Both will do just fine.

    you need to test this scientifically

    in other words you need to isolate a single variable and test it

    I suspect it is your body that is causing the static electricity and not the iPhone.

    You would need to sit down ( i.e. not moving ) and see if the phone will shock you when you are not moving around.
