Anonymous, 14 Jul 2010I am being real. And reality is, if I give up my iphone4 and get a different device, will it ... moreJust as an example, lets say you buy a samsung, it keeps dropping the call, constant failure on signal. Maybe short battery life, or a keeps freezing!
Will you honestly keep it or would you rather take it back?
If one likes a thing so much, take it back exchange for the same if you want and try again, any problems then yes or no. Then decide from there!
Come on! One would think to give people good advice but clearly, I need to rather tell this to an ape, I think they'd make more sense of it!

Believe me when I say, I feel sorry for you being in such denial. But anyhow, apple made a big mistake, and cant admit it. "Reality" They cant admit it, due to the consequences that will follow as explained so much will return the phone! Except you of course! :-)
That is why I said take it back if you really like it so much, after this 30 days and you still have yours, do you think they will offer you a full refund? No, sorry, just another exchange on one that will last yet just another, what 6 months maybe luckily a year? And so the circle will continue until you are really lucky and santa thinks you deserve one that actually functions properly!

And many were stupid enough to have kept their iPhone 4's. Quite clearly, the people still owning their phones are so wanting to be seen with the "Latest Must Have" item that half of the world will think: "My word, that person was still stupid enough to keep that faulty phone!"
So yes apple is very loyal to their customers, aren't they?
The thing that gets me most is that people who actually has this problem still does not want to wake up and take the thing back, if everybody does that they will have to fix this thing, but then again what is the changes of you re buying someone else's pre-owned phone?? That is another thing that will happen now!
So make sure if anyone ever decides to re-buy this phone, get it in white!!!!!

We have a choice my friend. Evaluate how you use your device. Learn the pros and cons of a device, and then choose the one whose issues you can deal with much better.

This is the mantra of most Apple haters I know.
Nice try, better luck next time.

For sheer pleasure, no, to cover the antenna!
I am still a apple fan, but slowly and surely I'm pulling away, they are really crappy with some things and they cover it all up. Look at the iPod classic, even that has been changed, the sensor of the click wheel is far less sensitively build, you cant cover it with anything not even invisible shield then track wheel does not work, properly!
People get so sucked into the apple phenomenon that they cant actually admit to others and themselves that apple is starting to falter.
Open your eyes people, if you pay that much for a item would you not expect to have it 100% working condition? ? ? ?
Apple is to chicken also to admit that they made a mistake, cause they know by doing this thousands of people will storm back for an exchange or refund, THINK ABOUT IT, it makes perfect sense!
soon apple will let you pair your iphones with other phones via bluetooth and let you set your own ringtones, but the you will have to wait 5 to 10 years, some hope yet. Buy an HTC these features are already availible.

There really is a night and day difference between comments posted from an iphone user versus iphone antagonists. From the choice of words, to the construction of sentences, to the train of thoughts, to the presentation of links to support findings.
Iphone users have more class :)

If a tech illiterate person can operate an iPhone, it means that they have succeeded in making it easy to use, wouldn't you agree?

Apple for example, did not invent the MP3 player, but the iPod made it accessible to many people, with some innovation along the way.
It is never only about new technology, or the latest or greatest when it comes to Apple. Rather, they bring together some new or existing technology, design, and user interface that creates a nice user experience.
This is obviously not for everyone. Some people like things to be laid out, for them to use in an easy manner, without having to always think about what's going on underneath. At the same time, there are those who like to tinker, and to be able to have full control of their devices.
Nothing wrong with either, just that different people, are different. Thus, differences in preferences when it comes to devices.
Engadget has posted a very comprehensive review of the antenna issue.
Actually, almost everything that's been said by everyone here, is mentioned in this article.
Key points which are important in my opinion:
1. Antenna issue is there, but real world tests indicate that performance is as good, if not better than most phones.
2. There have been no mass returns, meaning either too few are affected enough for it to be an issue, or it is not really an issue
My experience matches the writer's.
- Scratch-resistant surface
- Multi-touch input method
- Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate
- Three-axis gyro sensor
- Proximity sensor for auto turn-off
SOUND Alert types Vibration, MP3
Stay here and vote high and give the daily interest high people. Don't look at other phones, i phone is best,it has apps and 3g + wi-fi.
iphone is nice
[deleted post]Then return it and get a full refund :) Have you already made a genius bar appointment? Just like the rest of us, you have 30 days to return your iphone for a full refund if you are not happy with it :) So go ahead and return it :)
[deleted post]Ummm, at this point, can you please tell us exactly how many iphone4's have been sold and how many have been returned? Cause I haven't really read anywhere that millions of iphone4's have been returned.
Also, there's a little self contradiction with what you've said. You said that millions of iphone4's have been returned, and you also said that, "Inspite of you all being aware of the flaws, people still support ISteve". How can you say that if we all returned our iphone4's? And you know what? Regardless of why and how someone got their iphone, you should never judge anyone by what device they got for themselves. That is not nice.
As for Toyota. Even if it were true that they fell short on some technical standards or fail to comply on certain guidelines. Toyota drivers have been very happy and satisfied with their Toyota purchase. Proof that it's the user experience that really counts above all things when it comes to products.
Learn to mind your own business and respect others buddy. It is our choice. It is our money. It is us using the iphone and not you. It is us who will face the consequences of our purchase, not you. So why bother? Jealous, jealous, jealous, lol.
What the haters, Apple competitors, and even the media have to learn about Apple is. Apple sticks with their company beliefs and they don't care if it would mean lower market share. They have a walled business approach. And it is a balanced business platform to give consumers and providers a win-win situation. Apple protects both their business providers, and their customers. Those same rules and restrictions that you haters use to attack Apple are the same reasons why they are successful. They would rather keep a few customers who understand their beliefs and lose a lot who doesn't, than get more and more customers and fall under the same uncontrolled, unbalanced, unfair practices like everyone else. And that is why Apple is unafraid and is still doing well despite all these exaggerated attacks towards them. They know they provide excellent products and services, and they know that HONEST consumers who have experienced their products and services trust them and will keep on patronizing their products. So go ahead haters. Give it all you got. Though your efforts will be in vain :)
Why all the hype around this phone ? Face time ? 5mp camera big whoop. Most phones out now have 8mp + not to mention my expo which was released late 2009 has multitasking. This phone is for the tech illiterate.
[deleted post]See, your post is another example of a post that should be deleted, lol.
Iphones are designed and its parts are made in the US and assembled in China. It is not just made in China.

I mean look at this thread here in GSM Arena. Non iphone users complaining about iphone4 reception? Hahahaha. Isn't that a joke? Someone needs to show haters, that they will not always be tolerated.
Try to learn the simple rules of "cause and effect" my friend. If Apple produces crappy products, what would be the effect of that cause? If Apple does not tend their customers' complaints (the legitimate ones), what would be the effect of that cause? Naturally, no one will buy their products.
And oh FYI, my iphone4 had a yellow streak on it's screen when I got it. I called Apple Customer Service a week after about it, like what a real customer would do. I was advised to do a genius bar appointment right after the call, and I did. Went to the Apple Store the next day and my iphone4 was replaced with a new one with a flawless display. Talking about prompt service :)
