So can we please stop adding a new thread every 5 minutes about the iPhone 6+ bending? Every time I refresh I see another new thread. I realize this thread kind of adds to it, but please either add to the already 100s of threads, or just give it up.

I understand we are seeing this crap everywhere, but honestly. This is not even close to as big of a deal as its being made out to be. The number of people that are effected is such a small %. If you have the issue just take to the Apple Store, and they will fix you right up. There is no need to flip out about it. That just my 2 cents. Just tired of the junk on here. Use to be able to get help, and have a discussion about your new phone.

Yeah I am probably going to take a break from the iPhone section until this blows over.

If it were one huge thread then I could look past it, but I am having a hard time finding any useful info in this section the past couple days.

I know I've been reading too many threads when my vision starts blurring and I read the title of this as "Please stop bending your great junk."

Goodnight, Gracie.

You do understand that by posting this instead of simply reporting those threads to the moderators that you're just as guilty of keeping the topic going as they are right? :p

p.s. you should have seen the forum the day that RAM was discovered to be 1gb! :eek:

It has just become the whole section. This is just nuts. Really lets move on.

Yes I do, but I though maybe I could vent a bit about what I thought. Like I said in my OP I understand I am adding to the madness, but I just wanted to throw my thoughts out. Maybe we could consolidate the complaining into one thread or something.

This. ^. It's truly pathetic. The crybabies have all come out of their caves. It's something to complain about and they are bitter humans that thrive on this stuff. It's really sickening.

I was thinking. If the iPhone 6 + was a vehicle it would be a Mercedes.
Why?

Because Mercedes Bends.

Better bend gate than "yellowish screen" "is my screen yellow" "no reception" "apple acknowledges problem with...".

Seeing a bend gate targeted at the iPhone 6 Plus, is really nothing if you think about it. Its nice to see there is nothing more substantial to complain or troll about :)
Great job on the hardware this time Apple!
Now they just need to get their software stable...

I have a question regarding the bending issue, and didn't want to start a thread to ask it...

People are saying don't sit down "with the phone in your pocket" and some go on to say "only an idiot would sit with it in their back pocket". Hold on now, back pocket? That's pretty damn stupid. What I want to know, what about the front pocket? That's typically where I keep my phone. I'm currently on the iPhone 5, and when I sit with it in my front pocket I can feel some force pressed against it. But in over 2 years of use, no bending. I will say that I do wear skinny jeans, not skin tight jeans, just not baggy. Anyone experience bending on the 6 when stored in the FRONT pocket?
