I got one Thursday - mine is not one of the 1/42,000 that may catch fire while being charged evidently.. my house is still standing.

 

I am on the list with T Mobile for a replacement. They said nothing about NOT using the phone until the replacements come in.

 

Right now, they have nothing decent to replace it with anyhow.
(YES I could go back to my old phone but...)

 

2-4 weeks before the replacements come in...anyone willing to bet it will be twice that long?

 

I rarely buy anything neat or cool like this and go-figure...

I replaced the stylus for my old phone, and ordered it from Samsung directly, but I was placed on back order for about 6 weeks before they pulled. Took another two weeks for the replacement stylus to arrive.

 

At least they aren't Motorola.

I've purchased Samsung stylus' via amazon, they come really quick. And yes they are 'the real deal'....

I think it's a sign from above that everyone needs to switch to an iPhone.

 

New iPhone 7 coming out within 2 weeks

I wouldn't own an iPhone if someone gave it to me for free...

I have one for work. Hate it.

 

 

I wouldn't own one if you paid me.

 

These threads always turn into Android vs. Apple ... why?! that even happens over on Android specific forums.

Because there's something terribly wrong with Apple users.

I had two generations of Android phone before I switched to an iPhone. I'll never go back to Android again. It's the same lie as Windows: That the problems will be fixed in the next generation. They never are.

 

My iPhone just flat out works, and I'm more productive with it.

 

So what's wrong with me?

+1

 

I also started with Android phones and absolutely couldn't stand them.

 

iPhone for 1 and only reason : They simply work.

And I know quite a lot of people who did just the opposite, switch to iPhones and now they are back with Android...it can happen both ways. Shrug.

OMG.. hard to believe I've been using phones for as many years as I have.... that do not work.. >>smacks forehead<< what is wrong with me. I have an iPhone out in my kitchen junk drawer, that's how useful it is to me. I just took it because I didn't want to manage a second Google account, didn't want personal stuff on work phones.. and I was so thankful to be away from a Blackberry.... -LOL

It could happen both ways.

 

Fluidity on Androids just aren't the same.

Apple Might be a little greedy when it comes to prices, but they are the superior product for a reason.

 

Not hear to start a fight, but the software is what Makes Apple.

 

I need a phone that works.

...that reminds me, how's HL doin'? ;)

 

Just joking around. :)

 

She's doing well.

 

And no problem. :)

But it happens far more often that people switch from Android to iPhone.

I wasn't much of an apple fan at one point but the fact that things just....*work*, was a big draw to me.

 

At work my android phones would constantly drop the wifi connection. My iP6s has no such problem.

 

Maybe the brand of phone matters also (non Apple, of course).

 

ETA - its inner workings.
