    Lets just look at some facts.

    Apple Gains Market Share In US Against Android Ahead of iPhone 6 Release : Tech : Latin Post

    When they say iOS that is synonymous with the Apple iPhone. When they say Android that is represented by a plethora of different brand phones. The makers and models vary in performance and reliability.

    In term of brand iPhones continues to dominate the US market.

    Subjectively iPhones when compared to a comparable release tech phone competitor more than holds it own in rating or evaluation reviews by authoritative sites.

    That's why I have it delivered by UPS. Can then open the box over carpet. Lol

    I ordered the iPhone 6 the other day and renewed my contract, which expires on 10/11/14. I'm getting $200 back in a trade-in of my iPhone 5 later on.

    Brazbit Nah... It can't be.

    I can't believe that no one else thought of making a bendy phone first. That wasn't even listed as a feature. Well played Apple... Well played.

    I have a bendy phone, and it's not an Apple. But then again, it was one of the tech specs and not a surprise. :whistle:

    I can't believe anyone is surprised that the giant iPhone 6 Plus, made of aluminum, would bend if your squish it into a jeans pocket. Duh!

    My Dad broke his old Galaxy Note the same way which is why he got rid of it.

    I made a mental note "Do not sit on smartphone" back when I bought my first one, and continue to follow that practice. :)

    On a more serious note, do not install iOS 8.0.1.

    I can verify that this is happening. No cellular right now on my iPhone 6 with 8.0.1 installed. :(

    Going to wait a bit to see if they release fix quickly, otherwise I'll have to manually restore back to iOS 8.0.

    Apple REALLY fucked this up.

    With respect to the "bending" issue, I do like the hashtags that have popped up: #bendgate and #bendghazi. :tongue-39:

    LOL...regular restore isn't working in iTunes either. Glad I downloaded iOS 8 and can manually restore.

    What a cluster....

    GROAN! What is going to be on my iPhone 6 when it arrives? 8.0 or the other one?
  19. tke711

    tke711 Oink Oink Staff Member

    Probably just 8.0. Plus, by then 8.0.2 will be released.
