    :mad:You may remember me- I'm the guy who got his leg burned by the iPhone 3G- well, I'm fed up! Here's the deal: After my phone burned me, I had it replaced and signed a legal document saying I was fine and had no intention for a lawsuit. For a good will gesture, Apple sent me a time capsule and a bluetooth headset for free. Well, since July- almost a year ago, I've had 11 iPhone replacements... yeah- 11 IPHONE REPLACEMENTS!!!!!!!!!!! I've had one by one with a different problem every time: Disk issues, Dead pixels, Joan Rivers style cracking on the back... The good will gestures have even failed! I've been a loyal consumer to Apple for years! I'm tired of it! I can't take this anymore- I'm a film maker and I need my phone every minute- but since I've been sending it in EVERY MONTH! I can't get the people I need or the supplies- I have lost thousands of dollars and a year of college credit because of it. I'm really fed up. I'm going to see if I can get this POS replaced with the 3GS Maybe I'll have more luck. Please comment, I need some support right now. I HATE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

    James,

    I feel your pain, but I think instead of support, you're about to be flamed my man.

    You probably should just go with a different phone. You are probably nitpicking. Probably? What am I saying, you just said you've had 11 replacements. Quit looking for something to be wrong with the thing.

    Wow. sorry to say it, OP, but you must be a statistical anomaly.

    At anyrate, if you needed your phone 24/7, you should have gotten a brick of a phone with capabilities that were the bare minimum of what your equired. :eek:

    Uhhhh 11?

    I thought I was bad after I swapped for my third iPhone 2g.

    Nice thing apple does if you have a problem they fix it.

    Please if you don't like it dont buy it.

    When I say dead pixels, I mean lines of pixels... as for disk issues, the phone can't store information... and the cracking? it's been far more severe than those cracks you "look for"... I'm not nitpicking- I'm just getting the worst- I'm tired of dealing with customer support... I'm tired of being transfered from department to department from an "automated service which can 'handle' complete sentences" I don't want a different phone, the ones that work are far more superior than any other... agree?:confused:

    Maybe there's a problem with the power outlet you're using or something. Because if you get one faulty device, two faulty devices, even five or six faulty devices all in a row within the span of a year, even that many I could believe is just a streak of bad luck. But 11 faulty devices in a row all within one year? I have trouble believing your luck is so astronomically bad that all the millions and millions of other users wound up with a working device within the first few devices they were shipped, but that you just randomly wound up getting the rare faulty device time after time after time. It's possible, so I'm not going to say anything for certain, but on the face of it it seems so unlikely an occurrence that I think there MUST be another factor. Like maybe the guy who delivers to your house is really rough and damages your units in the mail, or maybe your power outlet is faulty, or maybe there's a lot of static charge build up in the area where you frequently keep the device, or whatever.

    I remember it burning your leg! That picture looked nasty.

    Well I think 11 replacements is a lot. I've had 2. But I whole heartedly believe all the faults were genuine.

    Seriously, if you're having that much trouble, dump the iPhone and get something else.

    I'm going to college for film- I was in charge of a production, I had to write a script, film, and produce it, since my phone wasn't reliable, all of the production went to hell and I wasted a year because of my failing grade and lack of film.

    Good catch, I didn't notice this. How could problems with your phone cause you to lose a YEAR of school? I could even see it causing you to lose out on a half year of school if it burned you so badly that you had to spend a few weeks in a burn unit of a hospital, but how does it cause you to lose out on an entire year? I'm having a harder and harder time believing this whole story.

    I think he means a year of college CREDIT.

    i don't know what that means exactly cause we don't have such a thing here in the UK.

    THAT'S how you're saying it caused you to lose a year of school?! Dude, that's crazy. Dude, if your life is THAT dependent on a phone, then you you should have all your phone numbers backed up. Then if there's a problem with it you can buy a disposable phone so you don't lose a year off your goals. Sorry dude, you can't blame the iphone for causing your problems at school.

    I was in charge of a film and my phone was the means of communication. believe the damn story or not- it's true. maybe not a year of college, more like 8 credit hours (4 classes in 2 semesters)- which still sucks
