  1. how anyone can say your not using your mobile properly is absolutely beyond me!!

    IT'S A MOBILE PHONE HELLOOO - a telephone that is able to be used whilst you are mobile

    I have the iphone 4 all i can say is what a MISTAKE!
    i can not use it so what is the point?
    absolutely no coverage ,where i did have before with the same provider and it has to be wrapped in cotton wool or it might break

    what were they thinking?....obviously they weren't at all
    and have heard numerous stories of the 'cracked' or 'shattered' back

    currently in the process of attempting to return the iphone, if anyone has a better suggestion i would really love to know about it
    Thanks

    Sell it. Someone will buy it for a silly amount of money, and then you can use the money to buy something that actually works as it should....

    I agree with the rest of your post, but when it comes to bashing Apple, people often take small leaps in whatever they are saying. It isn't a "whole entire cracked screen", its the back glass, which isn't the screen.

    I have never been a fan of Apple and never will be, but the iPhone is a great phone. Still I prefer Andriod phones, its nice not being locked into iTunes.

    Well, if a protected back screen (which should be very tough for use in non-cased scenarios) can shatter with some dirt particles rubbing around, I don't want to know what would set off the much more complicated and unprotected front screen..

    Obviously there aren't too many cracking, otherwise the story would be on bad front screens.

    I love MACS! If I didn't have to occasionally use a PC I wouldn't have the troubles that I have right now and I wouldn't be on this website.

    But your growth in the computer field would be stunted if you only used Macs.
