    Love the phone 4 cosmetics, love the appstore, gf has 3gs and loves it, but i cannot handle having an iphone4 that cost me £625 including the bumper, and not have it work how it should of and states.

    Apples conference made me angry and im not being snubbed.

    i will buy another phone when its all sorted and i dont have to wait over 3 weeks for a phone.

    as for the apps ive bought, i will use them on my ipod touch.

    sorry apple, you created a phone that didnt work, you blew it.

    Trolls do you're worse :)

    mine works amazingly well. those of you with problems are in the very small percentile of iphone owners. my advice is to buy a different phone, it seems silly to keep something that makes you so angry :p

    Ok, just remember you asked for it.


    You misspelled or misused the word you're it should have read your. Get it right next time or so help me.........:p

    But seriously, if you are not happy with the phone then by all means you did the right thing in returning it.

    Seems like you are doing the trolling. This website has went to hell lately with people complaining. If the new iPhone burnt your house down I would care. If you dropped a couple of calls, I don't. I have horrible service where I live and no 3g and my iP4 has been MUCH better at being a phone. Nobody held a gun to your head and told you to buy one. Why does everyone think they have to have one? I don't understand.

    Thats good. I heard if you wash your hands, the reception is possibly better due the oil that was on it..

    oh no no, im not trolling, no one held a gun to my head, im posting my experince and you chose to read it, anyway.


    i got blinded by the new iphone and stuff, if the phone i had worked id of kept it :)

    i just think its important for people in my position to actually return the faulty crap iphones as it passed through my mind that i should 'keep it as i waited so long for it, i like the phones looks etc.. but i dont want to part with it'.

    a fool and his moneys easily parted, and im not being a bad statistic

    I'd be frustrated as hell if I had a cell phone that didn't work, too.

    At the end of the day, it wasn't working for you and you returned it. Nothing wrong with that.

    Because when you pay a lot of money for a phone you shouldn't have to.

    You’re right. If you’re not happy, you should return something. I wished more would do that here. I had all the intentions to return my 4 if it had issues. I waited a little bit to make my decision (talking with people I know, listening to respected members of these forums, my own research), and once I had enough info to determine I should buy it, I did. I’m very happy (more so coming from a 3G).

    I’m hoping you won’t be making repeated posts to whine about it? Please? :confused:


    I guess not.

    For about half a hour, Apple today was pointing out how rare this problem. Even if it affected say 10-15% of owners, that still isn't the majority.

    Then at the end, they still went out of the way to cater to their needs (the minority) by offering a full refund (no restocking fee) or free cases.

    I'll take Steve's BS then!

    Sorry mate, but when quoting a dollar price to americans you need to remove the tax because they don't quote their prices with it. You're skewing the figure (intentionally or not).

    Mind-you doing a reverse currency conversion, which iPhone 4 tariff are you paying, £625 for an iPhone seems extortionate for even a PAYG iPhone 4 but you've quoted it as being 'line rental'.

    Please let me know where my calculation is wrong
