I Take Back What I Said About the iPhone

I've owned the phone for a while, now. It takes good pictures and it's always with me so that makes the camera handy.

My Review will, hopefully, save some people some money.
- Poor reception
- Terrible Battery Life
- Great Aps

I think it was rushed to market--maybe it had something to do with Jobs' death. I would NOT buy it if I had it to do it over, again. This is the first Apple product I have ever been disappointed in and I've had Apple computers, etc., since the 1980s. Apple is completely unreasonable when it comes to its contract agreement with Verizon and visa versa; a company that will say anything to get business and has terrible customer service. AppleCare, once a great benefit to anyone owning an Apple product, has gone down hill fast regarding tech support on computers so I have no doubt that they are poor in regards to the iPhone. as well.

Wait for the 5 and see if it is any better before buying. Hopefully, if consumers have come to the same conclusions as I have, and they voice their opinions, Apple will move to improve their product with very necessary upgrades.

  3. I think that's what happened. Seemed odd that they pulled the 5 around the time of Steve Job's death and all of a sudden the 4S was out. I think it was a rush to market. That's my personal opinion, but the problems are documented on the web so maybe they will fix it. Some people have no problem with the 4S so go figure. It may be the way one uses it OR it could be my otterbox case.

    I was really more annoyed with the AppleCare service, to be honest, and it provoked me to write about the iPhone. I have been Apples biggest advocate for many years, and it kills me to see their customer service go downhill.

  4. I shut Siri off the first day, but my friend Diane sent me this interesting article.
