Apple lose iPhone name in Mexico, revise statement in UK - read the full textUpdate: As The Verge has explained in their post on the matter, it seems there has been a misunderstanding over what actually happened in Mexico and what everyone thought had happened. As it turns out, Apple intended to cancel the 'iFone' patent in Mexico so they can register their own 'iPhone'...

Apple want to be a leader and it is NOT in a position as you cannot lead from outside the tent.

All phones "talk" to each other except iphones,
Media can be moved either by microSD or bluetooth from one phone to another. Apple is to another apple device or the PC!!

[So if you did not catch the GSMarena article WINDOWs8 NOW allows BLUETOOTH of songs before W8 NO!]
As regards to outselling it is APPLE or those who purchase apple product who DON'T do their research

What possible justification can there be that requires you to BUY another phone when you run out of space
or plan your purcahse on the media you have now

Do I really have to spend another $100 / £100 for another 16GB
So how can anyone confuse a network with a device?
"Careful mate that mast is about to fall out of your pocket"

Apple make good products and that is it, it is NOT reflected in awards won, just some benchmarks ie nanoseconds
They certainly do need Mexico

They must have launch the case in expectation of winning wow!
My phone has won awards and my next phone will have won some more by the time I upgrade...
UPGRADE! a word that begins with the letter "U" like USB-OTG

So the sapphire glass which causes purple haze in iPhone 5 images is also a Software issue then, and chipping of the surface must also be related with software?

You can of course purchase a second year's warranty for £61. Most of the customers who complain about iPhone issues do so in their SECOND year, they are somewhat reliable (if damage-prone) in the first year, although they do tend to eat up all their data allowance and have signal troubles WAY more than other phones. Apple will be claiming the 5% figure as they cannot accept a warranty claim that is out of warranty and therefore won't count it. I would certainly think the actual figure over 2 years would be 10-15%, unlike Samsungs etc which very rarely cause the user any trouble. I've got 2 and a half years of experience here mate, each new iPhone brings nothing new to the reliability or cost effectiveness table.

Droids are cheaper and available in multitudes.... iOS is darn costly to have, and what you get is closed shitty OS which does not even provide me the freedom to choose where and how should i keep my files..... Android does not force me usage of any software like iTunes for file transfer/management which is another pain in the A*se..... what @ Bluetooth FTP? i can't get a song which i like from my friend's mobile to my phone if i am using iPhone. my friend also should have iPhone for that..... so Android's much better in that aspect.... gives me freedom to share... do not have to pay ridiculously high amount for my phone and then apps and then music... plus expandable storage option is there in Android.... i do not have to pay extra 100$ to get additional 16GB which i pretty much get around 15$ with expandable storage card... so Apple is shitty in that aspect too..... Sorry mate, from all practical aspects for an End user like me, if there is any OS that needs to do catch up, it's iOS, grow up Apple.... provide freedom to people who pay ridiculously high price for you iShitty devices.....

> In reply to DotDot @ 2012-11-03 07:01 from bJbn - click to readi never said windows in house are invented by Microsoft.... Where does microsoft come in picture here?.... i am saying 'i' is a single alphabet and it's too vague for apple to sue a company just coz they use 'i'.... jeez, they even sued a grocey store in poland..... They them selves are copycats, 'iPhone' was a Linksys branded cordless phone and it was launched before apple launched the iPhone, now that's called copying.... copying name as it is, which apple did in terms of copying 'iphone' name as it's from Linksys and then using their money power to dump Linksys when they filed the lawsuit against Apple.... Copying single alphabet is too vague to say to be copied....

Don't wear a such big-hat if Apple got only a small head.
Apple is indeed a piece of crap when come to sueing.
Apple is forever moving 2-steps forward and back 3-steps...

There is nothing wrong with Apple products. its the ilawyer and the iexec.. They are not content with their profit margins on their products but want the icourt settlement as well, only if the lawsuit is brought before the US court..You know why Apple will always win in US court?, most big time Apple investors are americans. They have to protect their investments.

To make the lawsuit fair in the US court, all parties involved including presiding judge should have a signed disclosure statement saying that them and their families NEVER owned even a single Apple share.

Yeah, it's strange to me that Apple products would have a lot of hardware issues.
Last time there was news here on GSMArena that Apple like all other companies has the same percent of warranty claims as any other company.
That is around 5%.
Well... don't really know why this number would be any higher or lower than normal... Everything is made in China!
And as I have seen a few times with my friends Apple's customer care is pretty nice:
C: "I have a problem with your device."
A: "No problem! Just give us the device and here is a brand new one. Have a nice day!"
Exchange for a brand new device. No questions asked! Nice! :D

Arrogance and stubbornness of executives running a company have no place in this competitive world. There is a saying "IF YOU LIVE BY THE SWORD YOU DIE BY THE SWORD".
