    I'm surprised there are no major scandals this year related to the iPhone. No scratchgate, antennagate, deathgripgate, etc. anyone seen any major scandals this year?

    Actually, there's one on another forum over 10+ pages long! because the level that's included with the compass app is off on many phones, it messes with some of the games and such. Many feedback reports have been sent to Apple.

    Mine is also affected, on a known level surface where my 5 shows 0%, my 5s shows -3% or -4%


    Sent from something made by Apple!

    Yeah mine was -1 and my GF's is -3 on the leveler. Hopefully, it's a software issue and can be fixed with an update. If it's the new M7 chip, Apple has got a big problem.

    These are first-world problems. Folks are just SEARCHING for things about which they can bash Apple.

    UM.....is this your iPhone 5s right now?!?!?!?

    If so or if not, sorry this happened. This looks horrible. I hate to see a shattered screen.

    Please tell me it's a pic you got off the internet or something. Say it ain't so! Say it ain't so!

    First, tell the interesting story, that I'm sure you'll tell the Genius at the Genius bar, and then the truth. This way we can see how far you bent the truth. LOL!

    Glad you're getting the handled today.

    I saw a kitten stuck in a tree, so I climbed up and saved it. In the process, the phone slipped out of my pocket and onto the ground. It landed on grass, though, so it was fine. As it turned out, though, the kitten belonged to the president's daughter, and I later received a phone call from the president to thank me. I was so excited, I leapt into the air, and the phone jumped and hit the blade on the helicopter that I was getting into to go travel to the UN and negotiate world peace.

    Oooookaaaay! Good Sir, good. We totally understand.

    We need a straight jacket for this guy STAT!

    Yes, great story sir! That wil get you a new iPhone 5s ASAP!

    No, you probabaly should go with the truth and polish it a bit for simpathy, believability and results you want.

    What is the real story anyway?
