    Meh, you should be able to decide if you like a phone within a week in all honesty. I mean unless you leave it at home or don't use it often (Which chances are with a smart phone your using it) you should realize pretty fast if you like a phone or not.

    Well, if you've bought an iPhone, you've already bought the very best! I frankly can't find any logic in being able to return it, period. And remember what P.T.Barnum, (or was it W.C.Fields, not sure), said, "there's a sucker, er I mean 'iPhone owner', born every minute".:p

    OK guys, I can't even fake pretending to care about this. And you can't make me.....!:mad:
  9. If I ever had a lapse of sense and stupidly bought an iPhone, I would return it faster than light.
  10. Have 'em all but keep returning to the iPhone. It just works better. C'mon, get a job instead of trolling techspot and you could afford the best too. :cool:
