Hello folks, So I sold my V1 iPhone to a friend of mine and purchased the 3G on Day one and have been having a slew of problems. After getting home and charging my phone, I kept having problems with the LCD screen. When opening applications, I'd get a purple screen that would slowly fade to white. The only thing that would resolve this issue was rebooting the phone. After restoring twice and still having the same result, I returned to the Apple store where I made the purchase. After initially being told I would have to wait in line again to get my phone replaced, I was eventually told I could come inside to exchange my phone. I spoke to an employee that explained he could exchange the phone but reminded me that AT&T was having problems with activation and I should probably return on Monday. However he gave me his card and wrote "Replace DOA iPhone when activation issues have subsided," and told me to simply call to confirm stock and then I could return for a swap, no appointment needed. I decided I would try back on Monday. Well, of course they didn't have any phones on Monday and I had to keep calling back each day to check stock. I spoke to several employees that were very rude, one of which put me on hold for about ten minutes to check stock. Finally a completely different person came on the phone and said "We are sold out, you will have to make a Genius appointment for Friday to have your phone checked. We'll probably have more on Friday. Well they didn't, and they finally had some today. Of course by the time I called, they were all sold out. I'm not having the problem with the LCD anymore, but here are the problems I am having: -Some applications crash repeatedly, for example the AIM app will crash about 70% of the time. On occasion I have to click the home button a few times before the black screen goes away and the home screen returns. -About once a day the phone just shuts off and restarts when I tap to open an application. -I constantly crash when viewing webpages, the same pages I used to read frequently with my V1 phone. Crashes to a black screen and then back to the home screen very frequently. -When using Google maps, it repeatedly tells me I'm in the heart of Denver , Colorado and I live in Maryland. -The keyboard lags frequently when using text messaging. -The whole touch screen is very laggy in general. Pinching to zoom lags, scrolling lags, tapping phone numbers lags, scrolling through contacts etc. -Battery life seems very inconsistent. Yesterday I got about 2.5 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 20 minutes of talk time and 14 hours of standby time before it was at 20%. Today I got an hour of Edge browsing, 45 minutes of talk time and 10 hours of standby and I'm at less than half battery life. I know that the iPhone isn't perfect, but it just seems like I am having a lot of problems. I know that 2.0 has its bugs, but I'm also wondering if I have a lemon phone. My V1 was almost perfect in comparison to the 3G phone. I don't have have 3G where I live or work (even though I was told that I was in the coverage area before I purchased the phone), so I have 3G disabled. So is this just 2.0 bugs or a lemon phone? Restoring the phone hasn't resolved any of my issues, and discharging and recharging the battery three times hasn't helped with that issue. If I do decide to return the phone, I have to keep playing the iPhone roulette as I wait for new phones to come in because they refuse to set one aside for me. They keep telling me that I have to call them and that they won't call me. Any advice is much appreciated.
