    That's the quickest way to turn your iPhone into a consumable.

    If you are dumb enough to waste your money on an iPhone...you are dumb enough to believe and try this. I do not feel sorry for anyone who has done this.

    I imagine a person could be much dumber. Example: one could be calling others stupid based on which device they use/prefer themselves.

    Anyone who falls for this deserves what happens because obviously they should not have said device if they cannot understand that Electronics and Microwaves do not mix.

    I know boss I was joking.

    And my point was asking that question is futile on the internet :p
  20. For the money and for what you get, it is actually easy to judge people by the brand of phone they choose. I wear brand name clothing, but for the quality, not the brand. None of my clothing advertises the brand name. People buy Apple products for the brand name, while the brand used to signify quality and innovation, it has fallen way behind.

    Yours truly,

    sounds a very personal experience.
  22. Sounds like something the average iPhone user would fall for. Epic.
