I had a 2g for almost a year and never had ONE problem with it until a friend dropped it and I had a cracked screen. It still worked fine and it was
my fault or well my friends but I wasnt about to take it back and ask for a new one when I was irresponsible with it. I just got a new 3g last week
and I love it! I know people who have gone through these phones like crazy but it's their own careless handling of it. It's not like most phones so
you have to be careful with it. The best thing I can suggest if you own one is to buy this cover
Its a clear acrylic cover by Belkin which can be found all over the internet for about 15-25 bucks depending on where you buy it. Many kiosks in
malls have their version and its cheaper at about 12 dollars. I put this on my 2g after the screen cracked and it was great! I even had a moron friend
spill a glass of water on it and it was protected, had I not had this case my phone would have been done. The case protects the screen which is
the one thing people are always breaking on this phone. There are slots for the headphones, battery and the two buttons on the phone. I personally
think its great! Some come in color but the screen part is obviously clear.
As for the iphones and ipods that exploded I dont think it was that many compared to how many sold. I think people need to just take care of their
phones and not throw them around or shove it in their pocket and then sit on it and then get mad it broke! Hello you sit your 150lb butt on a phone
its gonna break. When I got my new 3g I immediately got a new case for it and it's worth it not having to replace my phone because of something
did not Apple.
Now about this spy software they plan on putting on phones, well as much as I LOVE Apple this is just stupid guys!! How are we supposed to really
know what this software does?? I dont like the idea of anyone spying on my phone and not even to see if I am mistreating it! If people are going to be
careless with their phones then they should be responsible for replacing it! A guy I know from work does construction and he has an iPhone and he has
had 3 in 6months! He complains until they give him another one and I think it's his fault not Apples. He is very careless with it. Now if your phone
just stops working because of nothing you did then yes they should have to replace it because it would seem something is wrong with their phone.
