    Had my 5C in white delivered today. Not that special I have to say and it suffers from an intermittently working sleep wake switch - it takes a few presses to work every few presses. The joys of plastic I guess.

    Back it goes...............!

    Uh oh.

    I'm gonna be glued to this site today, looking for all the problems people are finding with their 5S/5C.

    Take it back if its not performing as expected. We definitely need to see other 5C owns chime in to see if this is an aberration or not.

    Sounds like you got a dud. It sucks, but it happens when you're producing millions of these things at a time.

    Just return/exchange it.

    People actually use that button for things other than a reset or screenshot?

    Wait, what does the model of the phone have to do with it being faulty from the manufacturer? You have just as much of a chance of a dud 4S or 5S purchased today.

    I'm implying the 5C as a model is a dud

    So, other than the toggle.... is there something else that leaves you unimpressed? I mean I have certainly had a "bad" phone come out of the box, but I didn't decide the entire phone was crap. :)

    Ah, I gotcha. A good ol' trolling. Keep it up, chap, you'll go far.

    You don't use it to sleep your phone?
