    Just started happening, phone plugged in charging and I picked it up and could feel a tingle in my thumb when I unlocked with fingerprint, then I touched the camera lens on the back of the phone and it gave me a shock!

    Should I be taking this phone into the Apple Store?

    I would say yes mine has never done that. I would have it checked.

    Yeah I'd be taking it in for sure. That's not a good sign

    Good idea! Your phone definitely shouldn't be electrocuting you. Let us know how it goes today!

    That is a definite trip to the Apple Store. Should never get a shock from your phone.

    I've never experienced an electric shock from my iPhone. Maybe the shock is from static electricity?

    Electrocuted might be a bit harsh. Definitely worth a trip to the store though. Good luck.

    Its a new feature aptly named "conductive touch". Comes in handy when your phone is on silent. Instead of vibrating, it just shocks the crap out of you. Its also fully configurable. Go to General-Settinngs and you'll see a myriad of options....

    Text message = 5-15 volts
    Call = 30-50v
    Reminder = 15-30v
    Alarm = deplete battery and set fire to surrounding area or electrocute owner. <- Bit of a wild card this one.

    Conductive touch works in tandem with the iPhones new anti-drop feature "iNotFall". When activated, once you pick up the phone, it pumps out 220 volts, causing your hand to clinch the phone and not let go. Don't worry, they've upped the battery capacity to handle the load and you create a "safe word" for Siri during setup. Both features are popular with the S&M crowd and Moms love them because their kids aren't breaking their phones

    BTW: Yous have to accept the terms of use before either feature is enabled.

    This changes EVERYTHING!........

    PS: Be sure to check out "iLive", one of the new components in Health Kit. Offers on the go defibrillation.

    Yes happening to me. I just traded my phone in for another. Hopefully the new one won't have a problem. Verizon rep said I should contact an attorney but I'd rather not

    Nope, not once. But it sounds pretty serious. Did you have your phone checked?
