    has anyone else had any problems with there 4s? as I'm on my 2nd already! wtf and now I'm having problems with the 2nd one which i only got today, but i think its the headphones this time, i will explain bellow.

    1st 4s returned for :- battery life very poor!, calls crackling when on hand free, 3g signal would just go from full to off every second,

    02 swapped it for me straight away,

    now on the second 4s everything is better so far, but when I'm on hand free again it crackles very bad , sound like I'm talking through a fan lol, booking a genius bar appointment to get a replacement set of headphones, my iPhone 4 headphones were never like this, so has anyone else had any problems like this?

    sorry in advance for the poor grammar, hope it all makes sense lol

    Yeah, I wouldn't waste my time exchanging headphones that came with my iPhone. Just buy a decent pair.

    Once you have a good pair, you'll hear the difference immediately.

    i think i will just get some new headphones then and put blue tooth in my car, thats if i keep this one as I've just picked up the phone from the table and found it dead, black screen not working at all, plugged it in to comp and it says "iPhone found in recovery mode etc" seriously considering ditching this phone and getting something else, really not impressed at all!!!!!

    Switching your fone helped the battery?

    it didn't seem to be draining as much , but i didn't get to see how long it took to go flat as it died, luckily it has restored and come back to life just now. and unplugged the phone from the computer and the battery shows 3/4's full. why the hell did it crash?????

    The Apple techs did it to annoy you.

    Part of their "remote crash" integration.

    I'm on my 2nd 4s. The 1st one had sound issues. Only thing that worked properly was the ringtone. All the other sounds didn't work. Also when you use the external volume buttons all I see is the speaker picture and not the volume bars. If I plugged the 4s into my iMac then the volume controls and different sounds work. I did do a full restore from scratch and that didn't fix the problem. I restored it from a backup that I had from my 3gs and the sounds worked fine but SIRI disappeared.

    Received the 2nd 4s today and everything works fine.
