i really don't understand the hostility to this article from *some* Apple customers.
don't forget... by definition, all these complaints have come from...
APPLE CONSUMERS!!! i.e. the people who have actually bought the product. all the complaints about white balance, signal reception etc haven't come from HTC fanboys, but PAYING APPLE CUSTOMERS!!!
[deleted post]how many people get a laugh off you each day,its brilliant....zealot if we ever saw one. Check out those links to the futurama new iphone episode,you make the satire in that episode all the more true and funny!!
Apple have pulled it off again.. they managed to fool customers in to buying a product that is doesnt work.
[deleted post]Yup, every site and publication has proven the antenna flaw, meaning every single iPhone is flawed. Not one was as "lucky" as you it appears =))
You touch the bottom corner and the signal is gone.
And yup all of them are made with cheap scratchy glass that cracks ;)
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2010What makes iphone popular?its only the way it functions??first of all the basic phone feature ... morei have to agree with this sentiment.
the iPhone is a terrible phone... but a great iPod. there's nothing wrong with that. if you want a decent iPod with GREAT multimedia features an average to poor phone then jump for joy with your iPhone 4. it's clearly the phone for you. ;oP
waka waka, 05 Jul 2010can u afford a iphone 4 mate?or will u go hungry for the month?
name me a phone that is bette... moreHahaha. Yes I can afford an iPhone 4 thank you I'm willing to bet very much that my salary is higher than yours, I just choose to spend my money on things that are worth the price tag! You know, like any decent product should be. Don't get upset with me now, its not my fault your iPhone 4 is faulty you should be writing to Apple! Like I said, read the article.
Seriously, its shocking how you fans are happy to be lied to and continue to defend Apple. The statement they have released is obviously a lie. Every time I get the chance to pick up an iPhone 4 I do just to see if I can get it to lose all signal. EVERY time. Takes about 20 seconds. And then I check signal on my phone - no problems :) The really sad thing is if all you owners actually complained then Apple might be forced to take action on your behalf. But you lap it up and so they get away with it. No other phone company could do this - they have intelligent fans who wouldn't stand for such treatment!
Like I say enjoy your phone that you will now have to now have to buy a case from Apple to use, buy apps for it only from Apple, use only iTunes to move content, connect it to a mac if you want to make use of all compatible software etc. etc..
they're basically passing the buck to the network providers...
in a nutshell "blame your network. we've been covering for them with our generous signal bars. in the future we won't be so generous with our bars".
consumers and network providers are being treated with contempt.

waka waka, 05 Jul 2010u people just hate the fact that the phone u have in ur pocket is not good enough for wat appl... moreActually I just hate the fact that the phone in my pocket is being labelled 'buggy' and 'rubbish' when in fact it really, really isn't. You Apple/iPhone lovers really don't have a leg to stand on in this argument and I find it truly hilarious that in the face of shockingly poor customer service you STILL bash other phones and claim iPhone is the best.
Have you really read this article? Apple is making a joke out of you by giving you such poor service. And you all lap it up!! If I spent so much on a phone which had such ridiculous faults and was then told by the manufacturer there was nothing wrong I would be down right furious. Well you enjoy your dodgy calls and limited functionality, I will enjoy my 'buggy' phone.
all phones have there problems....sony ericcson satio,k850i,c902-blackberry 8520-nokia n97,n95,6500-lg cookie(kp500),arena all problems and alot more where that came from...iphone lovers arent sheep....the phone provides alot more services and entertainment than all others...would u go for pc or mac laptop??apple is alot faster and alot more reliable...they say they can fix it...THEY WILL
u people just hate the fact that the phone u have in ur pocket is not good enough for wat apple brings out...stuck in a contract and cannot get out?...best innovation 2008...best phone 2009....FOR A REASON...2008 came out the iphone 3g...it took 2 years for anything to come out with similar features....(desire and x10)...and to add on that...still nothing to compare...just an immitation of the iphone but with slightly better cameras....grow up...talk about things u know,
record breaking phone and best manufacture....iphone and apple....
What makes iphone popular?its only the way it functions??first of all the basic phone feature should work!Then see the WAY it functions!!!
I'm actually glad that Apple is finally taking a hit. I work for ATT, and I swear, the customers that purchase the Iphone are in fact as you put in this article; sheep.
Do you realize how many times AT&T takes a hit when it comes to the dropped calls and poor service when it comes to this phone (amongst other things that again only APPLY TO THIS PHONE).
Do you know how many times I have to hear "if [insert carrier here] got the Iphone, then AT&T would lose millions of customers" when the issue at least 50-60% if not more of the time, the issue is because of the same freakin' phone their clamoring for?
SMH. Trust me, there are more than a few of us that are hoping the phone gets to go elsewhere as well that way THOSE CSRs and Trainers can have to deal with the headache that is the IPhone lol.
[deleted post]Well you did post a link to it so I and to see what/since when they have articles. Symbian guru is rubbish, they don't even host a blog. All they do is repost things prom the oh so great symbian sites you'd like to troll on :))
I could get over the features if only they didn't have such a poor poor build quality and cheap materials that scratch not to mention steel??
If I want steel I get a fork! ever heard of titanium, aluminum, dur-aluminum???
And all those terrible terrible terrible lies!
Hardware flaws (exclusively in iPhone 4):
External uninsulated antennae that cause dropped calls and slow internet connections.
Screen and back made out of cheap glassy material that both scratches and cracks.
Dead pixels and light leakage on the "Retina" display.
Inverted volume controls on some units.
SIM cards don't work in some units.
Camera doesn't work in some units.
Proximity sensor doesn't work in some units.
Microphone doesn't work in some units.
They lied specific about every single defect which means they knew about all of them! iPhone is cheap china junk.
And who is we? every iPhone user I ever met complained about video support not expandable memory, videocalls, no multitasking, no mass storage...
the versions are:
-it's great but it's missing etc etc etc...
And then there's you who are delusional, speak of yourself in plural(schizo) and stay all day long on this forum hoping to hear of a fix for your beloved iPhone.
It's not coming so really stop refreshing all news pages every 5 secs and answering every comment.
People might think you're disturbed.
Anonymous, 05 Jul 2010Ohh how we mpurn symbian guru the 2 year old site that has covered 5% of symbian's existence =... moreHa Ha No no no!!! I want a list of phones that do ALL the features mentioned and do it PERFECTLY!!!! Plus with the great Apps support as the iPhone. And that has a great UI. And a proven great user experience. Dont copy and paste rubbish from the iDont list!!
Now dont come back to me until you prove a phone has all this. I want solid proof, not rubbish from a rubbish list! SOLID PROOF!!!!!!!
Us iPhone owners know we dont have things such as Bluetooth file transfer between different handsets and we know we aint got Flash. We dont need DiVx as the h.264 is clear enough for us. We love out capacitive touchscreen and miss resistive like we miss a hole in the head!
Remember the iPhone bothers you. Other phones dont bother me. But I dont want you coming back to me with rumours and phones missing features. I want ALL the features you mentioned on the phone.
