    Heh heh... try to remember... I think it was the headphone jack. I could only hear out of the left ear.. or something.

    That effectively killed my last iPhone.

    One of these.

    A) Don't laugh

    B) It was NOT my fault. My wife claims I tricked her into doing it just so I could get a 4S. Compelling, but my mind-control powers aren't that good yet.

    I started out with an iPod Touch, 1st gen.
    Then got a iPhone 3G
    Then an iPhone 3GS
    Now I have an iPhone 4

    All of these are still working.

    However, my son has an iPhone 4S and if he kills it his best bet is to pray...a lot.

    I had a 2 - 3GS models, 4, and now 4S. I also currently have an iPad2 and iPod Nano. They are worked perfectly :) I've never had one die thankfully.

    Boredom with the measly S relabeling.

    Hello Apple? Anybody Home?

    Wakeup & bring us an exciting *new* phone. :eek:

    Home Button on everyone of my phones from 1st gen to 4. :rolleyes:

    The 4s was just stuck on dock mode and had to be replaced.

    Lets see my first 3gs was stuck between my arm rest and seat in my car. Like an idiot I slid my car seat back and heard the worst sound ever... shattered screen. My second 3gs bit the dust only because I wanted to upgrade to the 4s.. Its still sitting in its box as a back up phone incase I do something dumb with the 4s

    My first and only iPhone, a 4S, is alive and well. However I did have a 2nd generation iPod Touch die when my 3 year old used it as a sail boat.

    I gave my 3GS to my mom, and she's very happily still using it.

    Well I usually upgrade and pass down my fully working old phone to my brother..however my 3G was killed by my brother two managed to drop it on two different occasions, the second time resulting in considerable damage to the housing, home button (ribbon attachment ripped away) and screen. I fixed it back up recently though :)

    :D

    Are you sure it wasn't the headphones that went bad?

    I've resold all my iPhones before they died, so I'll say one of the buyers dropped it in the toilet.

    Grandson dropped it in the potty

    Then I turned it (3GS) on to see if it still worked. Big mistake. Fried insides. But no problem; I wanted a 4S anyway. ;)

    Foolishly broke a 1G iPod Touch, but other than that, my iPhone is still kicking it. Love Apple's stuff.

    They say it's not the fall that kills you, it's the sudden stop.

    I'm sure it was definitely the headphone jack. But I still managed to sell it and get a considerable amount for it. And they were none the wiser! ;D

    My 4S will probably commit suicide: Death by Home Button.

    ...it's almost like trying to save the future, you never can.
