My Iphone is a piece of crap

Long story short.

I got my 3GS warranty replaced 4 months ago due to the OS being a glitchy piece of garbage.

Last night, my phone gave me the 10% warning, so I plugged it in. 10 minutes later it dies, so I try a different outlet, the charging screen comes up so i left it.

This morning it was dead. I was peeved to say the least.

So I put it into my speaker dock...no charge

I then go downstairs and put it into my computer. The charging screen comes up, two hours later it hasnt charged a bit and the screen is still up.

Its a 4 month old phone. Seiously? and now im assuming that the battery is shot and isnt taking a charge.

I hate this phone with a firey passion, its been nothing but a problem since september.

depends on who's crappy phone you're running it on. Samsung's stupid interface kills android.

Nexus S though for example where it's pure android is much better

I'm pretty sure his complaint is with a 3GS. Definitely not the first complaint I've heard about the 3GS becoming useless

my first brand new iphone 3g had a bad battery right from the store. They replaced the phone with a refurbished one after 5 days of owning it. So much for getting a new phone!

As for Android, every model is different. I had a samsung captivate which was replaced 3 times - a POS. Then I moved over to the Droid X, couldn't be happier. Just received the latest Gingerbread update and the battery is amazing now. I had 50% charge left after 23 hours of unplugging from charger. Droid X is a solid phone.

"You need to reinstall the OS on the phone."

You got a 3GS 4 months ago? It's probably leftover stock from a year ago or refurbished.

Are you unlocking/hacking the phone? I'm pretty sure your running the latest iOS software on the 3GS. Simply put, the 3GS doesn't have the power of the iPhone 4. iPhone 5 is coming out in a few months. Your almost 2 generations behind.
Anyways android seems just as capable, if not better, than iOS. iOS 5 is just sweet though

And yet some people have the nerve to curse me out when I say the Droid X eats the iPhone and its pathetic to own one because Apple just pwnd you.

They yell, they argue, but 4-5 months later an apology comes along as well as questions about my insurance for the droid and verizons awesome service.

iPhone users beware.... its a hoax.

The only phone I would ever consider other than my iPhone 4 (which has been nothing short of perfect, with and without the jailbreak) would be a Nexus S.
