Ipod Touch / Iphone


Recommended Posts

I wonder how many people check their moisture sensor when they first get it.

Hasn't Apple already had to admit (at least in part) that the sensor is too, well, sensitive? Isn't this part of the whole lower priced replacement they now offer?

Leather case arrived today.  Going to cancel phone and just use this:  

Crikey ... I go away for a while and all kinds of shit breaks loose.  Big and too big iPhones - even too big for Mikey's ass and Shelly's hands.  What the actual fuck is this world coming to?   Nice

Well I was on the phone with Apple customer relations discussing the merits if placing the liquid sensor on the exterior of the device when all other cell phone manufacturers (that I am aware of) place the sensor inside the phone under the battery. There stance of if anything goes wrong with the phone and the sensor is tripped all bets are off and they will not even entertain if the damage was liquid related or not is weak. There response was basically your fucked (in a polite and friendly way) and fork over another $199 so you can talk and then if you want the next gen iphone that is coming out then fork over another $299 (or so). So basically it's pay $200 to be able to hold a conversation on my cell for the next 6 weeks. F-that, Mike is hooking me up with a spare cell he has I'll use the iphone as a touch for now and search the market to see if anything else out there an provide similar functionality.

Well after 6-7 Ipods, 2 iphones, and Imac and a Mac mini I am thinking of converting over to another more robust brand.

I think we need to sick our class action lawyer on Apple. The location of the moisture sensor in the dock connector is insane and the fact that sweaty palms are enough to void your entire warranty just can't be legal. The next gen Iphone better have improved upon this.

Apple's Rules for Correctly Using Your Iphone:

#1. Do not touch your Iphone, it'll void the warranty.

#2. Do not breathe on your Iphone, it'll void the warranty.

On most phones the moisture sensor is well out of (minor) harm's way behind the removable battery. Of course, when you don't have a removable battery, you need to put it somewhere more accessible to both inspection and moisture. I'll bet money the sensors in the next model will simply be made less sensitive. And even more money that there eventually will be a CA settlement relating to this issue down the track, of which most of the users affected will neither hear nor see a thin dime. In this case, law = ass = Apple.

It's not listed above but tethering is available, except on AT&T. That was the one feature I was hoping for. I'm guessing it will be available at some point with an additional charge. I will probably pass my iphone down and pick the 32gb for the additional speed, better camera, video, etc.
