    With the news that Apple may be ramping up iPhone production to Razr-esque proportions, despite their seeming inability to produce even a couple of million phones without a plethora of cosmetic and structural defects (nevermind software and reception problems), what does the future hold for iPhone quality control? Will they finally get it under control, or is this what we can expect...?

    They seemed to cope with the iPod beforehand and inwhen bringing in new products there are some difficulties. The processes involved with be looked at and refined to ease out this problems.

    Can I unlock my iPhone and join TA&A's network? Looks like they have pretty awesome 3G reception.

    It's pretty fair to point out that I'd imagine the factories churning the iPhones out are capable of/ have/are churning out millions of other handsets for the likes of Nokia, which is still making a lot more handsets per day/month/quarter.

    Even if Apple had the same fail rate, making more = more badly made iPhones, even if it is the same percentage. It might be a concern about QC, but it's the manufacturer, not Apple really that has the problem. If Apple is pushing the manufacturer too much, or not overseeing QC, then that's a direct failing of Apple also.
