    So I bought a iPhone 5, 4 days ago at best buy she open the box looked at it and it had a big scratch on it, so she got a new one for me. I went home and took a picture. Well turns out there was big piece of dust under the lenses. So I retuned it and got a good one no scratches no nothing. Had it for a few day and decided I needed more space returned it for a 32 gb. Had some scuffs on it out of the box. They weren't that bad so I kept it until that night when I went to the charger out and it had a European charger. I returned it for a new one because the packaging was different and if I ever wanted to sell the phone I would need a box that would fit the charger. So this morning I exchanged it and got yet another 32gb took a look at and it scuffed on the edges. Best buy didn't have anymore 32gb and the guy was being a jerk. I'm really sick of this I take really good care of my things my iPhone 4 is in perfect condition after 4 years and my 8 month old galaxy s3 is perfect. I called apple support right away and have a appointment at apple at 3 today. I'm really tired of this. Is that hard to get a non damaged iPhone 5. I'm hoping since I called apple right away that they will exchange it for me even though I bought it at best buy. I think when u pay 300 for a phone it should be perfect I'm so frustrated!!!!!!!!! Apple is really slipping. Thinking about returning and saving the upgrade for a s4. What u guys think?

    From what I read, you had 2 non damaged iPhone 5's, but you weren't happy with them. So go ahead and return this one to get a Galaxy S 4 when it comes out, we don't need any more whiny iPhone users.

    Agreed. I'll never understand why some people have to examine their Apple products under a microscope. I'd hate to see what they do when buying a car.:rolleyes:

    Nothing as car dealerships don't put up with these same sorts of games

    The OP said he returned one soley for the packaging being different and out of reselling concerns. I am skeptical lol.....apple is about as standardized as it comes in packaging and everything.

    How did they even allow that return? the box had an issue but not the phone soooo they gave him a new phone? You gotta be kidding me

    One was fine. I need more space so i got a 32gb and it had european accesories instead of american(boxing error),the other had debris under the lens. They where all damaged you guys are very defensive and if your dumb enough to spend 300 buck on a damaged product then go ahead and yes if my brand new BMW M5 had a dent or scratch I would complain too. When you drive a crappy ford escort or honda accord I could see not caring. A damaged product is a damged product and apple quality control has way slipped on the iphone 5.


    And yes if my razr had damage from day one I would return it too.

    Have fun with the SG4 and returning it because of the display issues, or battery issues and so on. Oh wait, Samsung isn't so generous in returns, and you don't get to open 5 boxes to find the "perfect" one. :rolleyes:

    How have you had an iPhone 4 for four years? It was released in June of 2010 and it's currently February of 2013...

    If no one blew this stupid scratchgate out of proportion I highly doubt we'd have 100's of threads like this.Whats the point of making thread after thread about how you're leaving because of this problem or that.Trolling never ends -__-
