    I got my replacement iPhone 5 last week. The first issue was it had bad antenna. This one has been great, but just a few mins ago I went to App Store to get something I bought earlier on the iPad...anyway when I hit the download icon this strange static started up for about 6 seconds...like a bad TV signal. Just in random places on the App Store part of the screen. Anyone had this before? Or should I make the call again this week?

    I'd make the call. You really have bad luck.

    Was your phone close to a telephone? Sometimes that causes weird static? Just a thought.

    Nah nothing close. It hasn't happened again, but ill make the call anyway. I guess the touch screen could be bad or something of the sort.

    It's a 6.0 glitch/bug. I've experienced it about five times - most of them while I was in the App Store. There's nothing wrong with the hardware on your phone; this is software-related. I bet Apple will fix it with the next software update. You do not need to call them, but you can report it here:
    http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

    We have a thread here on this forum about this bug. A lot of people have noticed it. I'll see if I can find the thread...

    I hope they get the update out before I get my phone. Shouldn't be a problem. I probably won't have it for 3 months the way t's going.

    I'm sure they will, but it's really not a big deal. I just quit the app and reopened it and it went away. It's infrequent and doesn't affect the stability of function of the App Store. It just looks weird.

    Not true. I went out in sunlight just last week. :p

    Seriously, though - I'm usually up by noon. I work night shift.

    My Vampire comment was meant for the op. Vampires tend to glitch electronics.

    Hmm. Didn't know that. Which books/movies does that happen in?

    None. It happens with real life vampires.
