i cannot tell you how annoyed and pissed i am right now

my first iphone had the creaky corner everytime you touched it..... luckily i noticed it right out of the box and returned it, decided to wait until apple got their QC together!!! i live nowhere near an apple store, all this is done via apple canada webiste

so... get my 2nd iphone yesterday and like a fool i clean out the old 4s and get the new iphone 5 all ready to go, change sim cards (old one is now no longer valid) and am about to put the screen protector on when i notice about 5 or 6 perfectly straight vertical hairline scratches on the screen.... in certain lights you cant see them, in others they are VERY noticeable... i will post a pic asap

i cant believe it!!!! now i have to buy another sim card to get back onto my 4s, send this phone back!!!!!

i may be done with the iphone 5 for a while, clearly its not in the cards for me :(

This is technology. We have to remember nothing is perfect. Yes it's an inconvenience but these things happen even with Apple. I'm sure everything will work out okay.

thx for the post

well, i had to buy a sim card for the 5 which is now no good, have to buy another for my old 4s so that i cant get that phone up and running again... i wasted a full back bodyguardz on it as well... so i am out 50$+++

i was hoping that apple would get it together but i guess not... gonna stay with the 4s till 2013 and see what happens then

This is quite shocking 2 times in a row, sucks. But don't blame "Apple" or your Carrier for that matter, as these phones are sealed in China at Foxxcon and no one in the states or the great north sees what's inside until they arrive. I'm sure if you explain your mishap with Apple they will be more then happy to help you. Remember treat/ talk to them as you would want from somebody else. You might be stoked on what they can do for you.

Apple will replace it via mail and I think body guard will exchange the protectors under warranty

Perhaps it would be prudent to inspect your next device before you wipe your 4 and install accessories... Make sure you backup too!

Doesnt suprise me

Really.....

Because tons of iPhones have had problems with quality control......

Say.....

How did all those nuked and bricked Blackberry 99xx work for those people who got stuck with them?

I know what I did.....

I got an iPhone 4S so that I would never get stuck without a phone again....

Like when BB service down and left everybody high and dry for four days.

Really.....things not exciting enough waiting for BB10 that you need to go to other forums to disrupt????

Pathetic.

Their avatar picture looks like they are eating a rat...or an old wall phone...probably the latter since they seem to have an affinity for dying technology.
