    I don't care if anyone liked my banter or not. It's truth and I had a horrible experience. Come at me in a respectful way. I don't need any clarity. I'm not going to come to a petty forum and lie to a one minded community who tries to outcast and degrade others who don't think like them. What do I have to gain from that? I believe I have the freedom of speech at least here in America I do. My bad experience is not going to do any harm to your guys precious Apple empire. I'm sure most of you guys are not getting paid by Apple. I see some of you guys don't know how to deferred information from what's stated. So if I say went on my lunch break. But I waited over two hours (almost 3 hours) after being seen. That means my lunch break turned into over 3 hour lunch break. I said I missed my work hours in my original post. I'm lucky. I have a salary job and my job is flexible. Also lucky I didn't have any meetings that day. Smh...i was there for a lunch break that turned into 3+ hours (total time including appointment, waiting, getting replacement) what's not to understand... You can't believe that wonderful Apple had me waiting for over 2 hours after they took my phone and total experience was over 3 hours. I even had people who had appointments after me who were approached by their techs before me. I guess you didn't read the post you quoted me since you interrogating me about not mentioning dropping phone in my original post. I didn't remember and don't care honestly. To have someone on this forum blame me for AppleCare increasing really people like me is the reason it's increasing. How about inflation of the dollar and phones becoming more expensive for the increase in AppleCare. I believe Apple was sued for lack of coverage in the original AppleCare plan for iPhone and iPod. I have a Warranty not through Apple. Through Verizon and SquareTrade. So I was never going to pay that amount for a replacement.

    Yup how many times I have to say they only replaced my phone for free because of bad service and wait time. That's what came out of the lead Tech's mouth.

    My story is not changing. I honestly have nothing to prove to any of you. I posted my story to warn others that the phone can bend without extreme force and the horrible service I received. I never had a phone bend before. I do think it's unacceptable after 42 days of having a phone in a case with tempered glass protector. You guys only looking for a loophole because you don't believe the phone can bend that easy. But mine did. End of story.

    No. Not end of story. You come here to continue the saga, right? Then state all the facts. You dropped the phone five feet onto a tile floor. You posted about the drop to discuss the gel case that you'd bought but neglected that detail when you went on your rampage against the Apple tech folks. So......no....quit the passive aggressive victimised misunderstood stance. And quit the arrogance, everyone else here also has a life, friends, careers, etc. What we also have is enough integrity not to omit details that impact on the story.

    Dropping a phone in a gel case five feet onto a tile floor and then forgetting that detail is why we all challenged you. Especially when you open your post by making the point that the phone had never been dropped. I challenged you, didn't insult you nor attacked you. You should know the difference. Nobody is saying the phone doesn't bend, we said you omitted important facts in your story that you detailed a scant four weeks earlier. THAT is why we challenged you. Selective amnesia.

    I have the symmetry on my 6+ as well as a glass screen protector and have had no issues at all. It does exactly what it is supposed to do and what I bought it for.

    Yeah. I saw a bunch of people jumped all over you in your post. That kind of stuff makes me hate "apple" people. Some of them have the same mentality as an extremist "insert religion here" follower. Makes me ashamed to even be apart of the forum. I switched back from android but you would have hardly ever saw that on android central forums and here it tends to be the norm. I just want a phone that works best for me and for now it's my 6+. maybe next time it will be something else. I wish people could help people find a solution to a problem or offer advice instead of looking for loopholes in someone's story and berating them on the Internet. I thought you had every right to be upset and any reasonable person would assume that an engineer would design a phone to not fall apart from a height of an average person. Certainly someone with that degree of expertise would not have overlooked the fact that life happens.

    I use a UAG rogue folio case (red) on my 6+. Also, even though there is a cover to protect the screen, I use a glass screen protector on the display too. So far no scratches, marks or more importantly any bends. With the vas on the rigidity of the phone would make it extremely hard to bend the phone without some very significant force to do so, so no worries about any small drops that might cause any issue on the structure of the phone.

    That might be the first uag case that I've ever seen that I liked.

    Is that kind of like a wallet case? Does it open up and show any slots for credit/debit cards? How does it stay closed?

    Yes, inside the front cover there is a slot that you can fit about 3 cards into. It is like a wallet case yes. It stays closed by a wide magnetic strip that closes around the back of the case. If you go to the manufacturers web site they should show some images of the card slot and the cover locking strip, and more pictures all round. The magnet is strong enough that it would be very hard to open it unless you wanted too.

    I thought of this issue too. Silver iphone 6 plus on clear 0.8mm protective case. Put inside my pant front pocket. Need to do alot of squating down. And standing up. Will it cause bending?

    I'd like to start by saying that I don't have a case on my phone, period. I wake up with it under me sometimes. I keep it in my skinny jeans (haha not really, but I'm a chick); its been in awkward positions in my pocket but yet.... Not bent!

    However, my friends 5s was bent somehow (disclaimer for anyone thinking its a 6+ issue.)

    So don't worry about the blown up "bendgate". Enjoy your phone! That case is great.

    The bending problem is way over blown in my opinion. There are plenty of phones that will bend if you don't use common sense. Put a case on it and don't go around sitting on the phone and you should be good to go. Enjoy your phone. There is a lot to enjoy.

    IPhones do bend- not necessarily with the Otterbox. My son purchased a case from one of those kiosks in the Mall. Shortly thereafter, his IPhone became erratic- turning off and on. It would work and then not work. Went to Verizon, who took off the case and sure enough it was bent/warped causing the sim card to connect and disconnect. Told us not to buy any of the generic knock offs for they are known to bend the IPhone 6. Long and short of it all...had to pay the insurance money for a new phone.
