    I've had my iPhone 4 for just over a year and within the year of purchase nothing bad ever happened(ie no scratches no cracks no nothing)Even dropped it off the top of my bed (its a bunk bed) and nothing happens. Now as the iPhone 4S is released, my iPhone gets a million cracks(by dropping less than a few feet off the ground),battery life fails now and everything has gone to hell with my iPhone 4



    what the F*&K just happened

    Apple pre-programs their iPhones like a 1 year time bomb to have "issues" ;)

    What happened to your iPhone?
    1) you dropped it
    2) you have exhausted the battery over the span of one year

    I'd restore as new and see if it fixes anything. It should feel like new.

    Products are designed to break believe it or not. It is a fact so you will buy another. Now your case probably just bad luck. LOL

    Unfortunately this happens to a lot of electronics, they want to break down right after the warranty has expired. Anyway, I'm sorry for all the trouble that's been happening to you and your iphone. Hopefully Apple will help you out somehow.

    I wouldn't say that they are designed to break. I'd just say that they aren't designed to last forever.

    Last time I checked...

    Things typically get weaker after they're dropped. Hmm..........
