 [Rant] Iphones really suck!!

Besides all the PRIVACY ISSUES we know about them

A friend HAD MY # IN HER PHONEBOOK ON THERE AND THE FUCKING THING KEEPS CALLING HERE!!! (She doesnt know its doing it) No one says anything when you answer!

I DONT KNOW WHY SO MANY PEOPLE USE THAT PIECE OF FUCKING CRAP....... THEY CAN BE TRACKED ON IT,ETC....... I WOULD LIKE TO SMASH EVERYONE OF THEM!!!!!!!!!

I called her and asked her to please RMEOVE MY NUMBER FROM HER PHONE BOOK..... (She knows it anyway)

She doesnt seem to care that it calls EVERYONE ON HER LIST W/O HER DOING ANYTHING!!

Fucking piece of trash!! »/r0/download/1···4gh0.gif

She probably isn't putting the phone on lock when she puts it into her purse/pocket. Then stuff presses up against it and calls your number.

This isn't a flaw with the iphone, as all non-flip phones have this problem. It is a problem with the user being dumb.

do you mean all the privacy issues inherent in all phones, or just the iPhone? If just the iPhone, please fill me in on all these privacy issues.

iPhone buttons will not be pressed by anything other than a human touch. Her lipstick touching the phone screen will do nothing, locked or unlocked.

Cell phones in general ARE PIECES OF FUCKING CRAP.

THE PEOPLE USING THEM SHOULD BE SMASHED.

I DON'T HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH MY IPHONE CALLING PEOPLE WHILE IT'S IN MY POCKET. I THINK SHE IS JUST FUCKING WITH YOU. NO PRIVACY ISSUES THAT I KNOW OF EITHER. I THINK YOU JUST LIKE TO COMPLAIN JUST FOR THE SAKE OF COMPLAINING. DO YOU HAVE A VAGINA BETWEEN YOUR LEGS? I THINK YOU MIGHT.

Obviously it is because, as you have so clearly pointed out, the iPhone is a F'ing piece of trash.. This also explains why sales are so low, and why virtually everyone that has bought one has returned it within the 30 day return-period for their full refund.. This also is also partially why Apple's profits are doing so horrible.

The Iphone can call someone without you actually touching the screen. Its usually a issue with the phone and the pressure of the screen. My Iphone started doing that after I dropped it one day. It would call people while the phone was in my pocket. Not actually touching my skin.

The problem is that pay phones are now few and far between, so if you need to call someone, you can't just pull over to the pay phone on the corner anymore.

Unfortunately, a cell phone is almost a must-have these days.

Because it's a nice device. And you are being tracked in the same way on all phones.

How is that even a problem with the phone?

Just tell her to quit calling you. Or even better yet, just give up technology and tell people that you are now going back to the dark ages with no way for people to contact you, other than Snail Mail, or Pony Express.
