    Amazing what happens when the whole story comes out in the wash, but let's blame Apple because she dropped her phone....TWICE!
    Well I just don't understand coming on here to warn us about the possibility of the iPhone bending under "normal"use. I feel like that is misrepresenting the situation and worrying folks for no reason. Especially when many come here to research and determine if this is the right phone for them.

    Using the hype of #Bendgate to come here to complain to us. It's just simply that they were unhappy that Apple actually suspected what we did as well. I think OP didn't realize we're actually very observant. Lil is at least.

    I'm going to ignore most of these posts. The two drops I talked about didn't cause no bend because 4ish feet drop from my chest I was able to catch with my body let it slide slowly to fall so it was more of a fumble. And the drop off my desk 2ft high. That's was like knocking phone from couch arm rest to carpet plush floor. I honestly forgot these "drops." You guys only see the recount of these drops cause I wrote it around the time it happened. Btw normal use is being able to drop your phone it not bend when it is in a protective case. I'm pretty sure that most people have dropped their phone would expect it to not bend if the drop wasn't bad. All you guys think my service was great I hope you get the crappy service I received. Yeah people complain when they have bad service...I'm pretty sure you guys would sing a different tune if you were in my situation. It's like some people like to follow others. If one thinks it...it must be true. Like if someone received their iPhone back with crap on it from AppleCare all you guys would say they deserve it and they still received excellent service. I follow my own drum. If something isn't built to quality. I'm not going to stand by it. I have a doubt in my head now that most of people's phones will not make it two years if they are like most people and have accidentally dropped their phone. Their phones will be bent. This will be my last post in this thread. Feel free to call me every lie in the book and judge me based on two posts that pretty much sums me up in a nutshell (ignorance is real). There's only one being that can judge me that's God. So you others keep whatever negativity you throwing. I hope some you guys can do something other than insulting others. Btw I'm very observant I think most you guys need a life.

    Disclaimer: I'm working on not caring what others think of me. In the Bible says you give people power and their words credibility when you try to defend but if you ignore it gives their negativity and gossip no credibility. I'm still working and praying I get better. I want all people you toknow the real me. Some people will just not like you and I have to accept that. I have friends and family tell me all the time ignore people and they will leave you alone. A lot people say stuff to get reactions out of people. If you say nothing or do nothing. They get nothing and move on.

    Just admit you lied. You dropped the device! Period. This is fraud. You are very lucky Apple still gave you a replacement device.

    That wall of text is just you trying to justify what you've done. We are all adults here so feel free to ignore us all you want.

    As for bringing religion into this, just bring facts okay?

    Normal use is not defined by being able to drop your phone. People have shattered screens dropping from small distances (like from chest level or from a desk). You cannot say with 100% certainty that your drops did not cause a bend.

    Personally, I think the whole story smells like garbage. Just my opinion. You've already gotten caught up in the lie or omission, and now ur getting defensive. Time to unsubscribe

    Oh give me a break. You dropped the phone. Period. Whether it was 2ft or 20, you still dropped it which could cause damage. Maybe if you prayed harder, God wouldn't have let you drop your phone....

    I've used my 6 plus with out a case plenty of times. In jeans pockets even. While driving. Going from sitting to standing to kneeling. Have a friend with the 6 plus whos done the same. Both phones are straight as an arrow.

    I didn't fraud anyone. Apple didn't give me the phone based on what I said if you could read properly. I said this about three times since you so observant. They gave me a replacement for free only because Apple admitted to giving bad service and they said it was unacceptable so that's the reason they replaced my phone for free. Get the facts straight. So no fraud here. God is everywhere. So I will put my religion where I please. I praise my God.

    They gave it to you so you'd leave. Apple is overly concerned with customer service. So you're right, they did it to please you. However, you still did withhold information pertaining to a damaged device. This is fraud. You can wrap it up with a bow and call it whatever pretty sentiments you like but it's still omission of truth.

    That's fine, just don't hide behind your religion. Face what we are telling you with factual statements. I'm not bashing your religion, I'm merely saying there is no purpose in throwing that spew in our faces.

    Now, unlike you who said you'd just simply "Ignore us", I'm going to make like a tree and leaf this ridiculous thread.

    "Fraud" is a noun (person, place or thing). The verb form (action word) is "defraud".

    I’m not sure anyone accused you of defrauding Apple. But we are saying that your original story was incomplete - you omitted the fact that you dropped your phone
    TWICE. In fact, you did defraud us by virtue of the fact that you lied and specifically said that you did NOT drop the phone. So spin this however you have to so that
    you can make the "facts" work for you, but you have no credibility with me.

    In her defence she said that she forgot the drops which is why she did not report it to Apple. So who knows if she actually had the intent to defraud Apple. In everyone else's defence her username is eerily similar to 'malicious'.

    How likely is it that anyone would forget dropping a 900 dollar phone?

    This November was my busiest school year by far with reports, midterms, and assignments due almost every week. Not to mention I work part time. If I dropped my phone 2 feet on carpet at home while studying for example. It's hard to say that it'll log in my memory bank. Thats just me speaking to the likelihood of forgetting the drop of a 900 dollar phone. I'm just saying its not impossible for her to forget that. But like I said she could be malicious.

    Personally if i dropped my phone five feet as was noted in the post from November onto a tile floor I would remember not only the fall but every second of it, before and after. The possibility of damaging something that cost me 900 bucks a scant six weeks before is going to keep it fresh in my mind. I would say that the majority of people would remember dropping a new 128 G iPhone 6 Plus onto a tile floor. Especially when you're at the Apple Store discussing the repair of a phone. As a matter of fact it would be natural for that detail to arise.

    In any case, whether remembered at the store is immaterial. The fact that if someone reminds me of something I've said before that contradicts my current statement, I would find it more natural to say "oh wow I forgot that" than to suddenly bring God and religion into the conversation, and discuss worship. There's the unfortunate similarity to all kinds of politicians and public figures suddenly bringing up religion when there is some allegation of misconduct.

    I love Apple, have had iPhones since the 4, now I have the 6.. I AM an Apple fanboy, push them to people like they are the best thing on earth! But you know you have to LOL when you think about the fact that you can bend your phone from small drops!! That is too funny!! I have an Apple leather case, then it goes into a thick leather belt holster from Verizon.. Treat it way better then I treat myself.. And I still worry about this bend thing.. I DO think they bend easy.. Just looking at that thin Aluminum shell and you can guess that.. I have Applecare+ so if it happens so be it.. It won't be from my neglect though because I baby this thing like no one else I know

    If your phone is in a situation where it can bend I'm sure a case won't do much to prevent it. Theirs even been reports of them bending in otterboxes's but once again it's all speculation. It's just a phone at the end of the day though, a expensive one that should be taken care of but no more no less than a phone. Everyone should enjoy it and be helpful to others instead of making hasty accusations. We're all aware that under typical normal usage it should be fine but that doesn't mean their aren't a few bad apples in the bunch.
