Hating my Iphone 4s...



Long story short

At one point - i got a exclamation mark saying that phone is too hot and will just shut down for safety reasons...

Weird... but ok i put it down to cool off a bit (this was about a week ago)..

Then about 2-3 days later, my phone randomly started to shut off... about 5-6 times a day for 2 days..

Got really sick of it so re-did the phone like new, no software no restore of my data.. FRESH!

It runs fine 2 days... then since 8 pm yesterday my phone lost all signal and is now just saying "searching"... or no signal every now and then.


What a POS! I went to the stupid apple store, no help...
I called apple care, then after that spoke to senior applecare person, all they could offer me like everyone else was 199$ (since its not under warranty anymore)

Garbage!!!

Try another apple store? I had an iPhone replaced for fee. And it was out of warranty.

Can't expect all electronics to be absolutely perfect. Everything fails.

if the phone has warranty apple will replace it for free.

if the phone does not have warranty apple will replace it for 199$.

make an appointment for hardware service with a genius before you go down (online).


i'm on my 8th iphone.

How old is the phone? Any water damage or other damage to the phone?
I've seen ppl destroy their iPhone before it stopped working.

Apple is pretty good with their warranty compared to other companies, as long as you are within the one year, which it looks like you aren't.

On my third iPhone in ~4 years. Never any issues with hardware... When I sold my 4 i had it replaced with a new one at the Apple store for a fake-warranty issue, just so I could sell it easily instead of the dented and scratched one I had

They're very accommodating, I'm surprised to hear you've had trouble.

When I had my iPhone 4 replaced, it was one or two months out of warranty. First they told me I had to pay for a new phone. I said "I'm not going to risk buying another one when the same issue could happen, and the new blackberry looks pretty good"

He went into the back and brought out a new phone and didn't charge me. No questions asked.

Nice doogee , i said similar i said well not worth it for me to buy 200$.


Anyways, I kind of look dumb now, I was just pissed.

When this all happened (with the "searching").. I don't have another micro sim in my house...
It turns out it was the friggen SIM.

I did a lot of research before and no one really ever said SIM... it was on my mind to do first, just never had one around...
I figured if it went bad it would say no sim... or bad sim like phones usually say?
When i took it to the apple store the guy even said yeah its not the sim, it wouldnt say that.

So today i was eating lunch and popped in to rogers store. The chick put her SIM from her HTC into my phone, and bam my eyes lit up as i saw bars... She put my sim in her phone, nothing!

THANK You!

some of the problems your having could be due to that exclamation mark that came up one day. I have a 4 and a 3gs which is strictly my ipod, I was working on my car and I left it out and got the same message on the 3gs.

Ever since then, nothing was the same.
