Thread: AppleCare Leak: No Warranty Service, No Free Bumpers

is a discussion within the

iPhone News

General iPhone

I really want to yell out profanity right now. If there is a firmware update it is most likely just changing so the bars do not show reduction in reception.

    If there is a firmware update it is most likely just changing so the bars do not show reduction in reception. The actual reception issue should be physical problem not software, since they say how you hold the phone is the issue.
    Gonna have to tell people not to buy iPhone4 or cancel their order if they want a phone, buying this POS with bad reception is not worth it. Sure there is a lot of nice features, but this is phone first other features 2nd.

    Well shouldn't we expect the phone too work the way it suppose to be after paying all that money and signing a contract with att for 2 years ? and when people like you don't want to admit that there is a designing flaw then people like us in society needs to FILE LAW SUITS so people like you and apple dont sell faulty products to there customers and when customers ask them for help all they give is bunch of BS

    That is only a temporary fix. It is more likely that the iPhone is not switching frequencies to accommodate the interference of the hand. I see this on 3G only. If I am running Edge I have no signal issues. If the phone does not know to switch frequencies when the signal starts to drop then it will continue to drop or get low. This is all handled by the phone and not hardware.

    Is it the same with all i4's or is it just some of them?

    How bad is it? Should I just stick with the 3Gs? or is it still worth upgrading with these annoyances?

    I got the free bumper cause my phone was still sitting in a warehouse in China on the 24th. Well, I had actually already bought it when I pre-ordered but they just knocked the price of it off.
    But anyway, back on topic. I'm usually not one to defend Apple but I don't see what the big deal is. I really have to try to get my phone to drop 2 bars of service (without the bumper). I imagine some of you may have a defective unit but alot of you are just trying to get something for nothing. Or maybe AT&T has been great service all along and the iPhone is just a piece of s#%t...

    Definitely worth it in my opinion and I'm having the reception issue. Its a pretty minor annoyance for me because I'm not experiencing dropped calls or failure to send data.

    Is this legal? I mean we have 1 year warranty correct? And this is a hardware/software issue a defect in the phone, shouldn't our warranty cover this? I mean they can't really legally change up the warranty policy for those who purchased the phone before the change? We don't have any legal rights to get a replacement if we are given a defective product?

    Strange, I've never had reception issues on any other phone before because I "held it" the way in which it's comfortable for me to hold it. I believe that just as much as I believe that Steve Jobs isn't an old troll who's time is about to run out on him...

    Fk their tone, they have $699 of MY MONEY (plus tax paid) for a product they are going to attempt to convince me is not faulty as their strategy to fix the KNOWN ISSUE as they try to save face and their own azz.

    I don't care if their tone massages my gentle soul like a rushing river the end result is fix the problem or you get to hear MY TONE for a while.

    If Apple wont fix it, I don't want the phone. Plain & simple. Yes, my free bumpers are waiting to be shipped courtesy of Apple, but still.
    Why can't I use it like my last couple of iPhones? The ads show people holding it the way I do & it works fine for them. Why doesn't it work for me?

    If I was selling new cars & I told you it is a great car, but you can not fill the fuel tank more than halfway or it leaks. We designed it to leak, but don't worry, I can sell you this patch so you can fill it all the way. Would you buy it?

    Not the end of the world, just dropped $63 on 2 bumpers today for my wife and my phones. Didn't plan on getting them, but we have both had dropped calls / data latency when not doing the Vulcan hold on phone. Actually think they are designed pretty cool with the embedded buttons and all.

    What would be interesting though, is what might turn up in discovery if a suit is filed. If it can be proven that either a) bumpers where designed as a remedy to a known issue (a hotfix post production) or b) bumpers where sold to discretely camouflage a known defect.

    Oh well, saving my receipt and will see what comes about. In any event, I'm still happy with my phone and glad I bought it. Frankly, for me and the Mrs., the bigger problem is the stupid sensor not cutting touchscreen off quick and consistently enough - resulting in calls getting hung up on / muted / put on hold / speakerphone'd or random digits coming across line. Bleeeeding edge? Ugh...

    Seriously, how is that legal?

    I'm going to raise hell for a replacement before my 14 days are up I've only had the phone a few days. Also Apple fanboys just stay out of this thread, like above poster said its no big deal to him because he isnt getting dropped calls. If you arent having issues and are NOT getting DROPPED CALLS dont post in this thread, period.

    I bet that looks pretty too don't it? Your brand new slick metal banded futuristic iphone wrapped in a good year tire so it will work.

    The bumpers actually don't look that bad. Of course I prefer not to use protection

    I wanna get in the Class action Law sue , I also have issues, and since Steve, was nice enough to convince us to buy an Iphone 4, then he should be held accountable for his lies.

    Did I deny that this was a issue? dont think so buddy. As I said if you r so disgruntle about it take it back.people like me sell faulty product? My friend dont accuse me of selling faulty product. Im simply making a valid point. Take it back and get something different.before you do you might want to check this out. I dont see that law firm going after them and why not. Well my guess is they no that the iphone is getting major attention right now and want sometime of notoriety and be in the lime light
