Today, I took my new iPhone into a technician to complain that when people called me, the audio was very quiet and muffled. Convinced it was a fault, I demanded a replacement. That is when he peeled off the factory issued protective screen that covered the ear piece. FML

wow. dont u usually take that off straight away?

Wtf the screen protector has a massive tab at the bottom


iPhones are usually shit.. but I think 3GS' are sometimes quite cool

I work for AT&T and have had at least 5 other customers do the same thing to me. Need to be more observant! :)

Yep, I had a brief stint with Apple where I had to do the exact same thing, Me- "Ma'am, have you removed the screen cover yet?" Oblivious old woman-"what's that?" Me- *sigh* "Here you go ma'am, it should be fine now." *contemplate how to commit suicide with a MacBook*

If you cant work an iPhone, you shouldn't buy an iPhone.

That screen doesn't mess up the audio maybe those dumbasses should turn the volume up. Noobs.

Indeed it does mess with the speakers when not on speaker phone. First thing I was told when I bought my iPhone.

Stro88 please go run with a pair of scissors

You're just an asshole all-around, aren't you? Jesus.

82 Umm a little mellow dramatic over a piece of crap don't you agree?

Ok and I bet you're a frickin rocket scientist hu geez dushe bag

Thumbs down, 94, for being the only one to thumb up your comment.

Maybe he should go play tag with the cars on the freeway?

my opinion of the iphone 5: i think apple is now just going overboard! and now tht bill gates quit apple, its gonna be shit! and all the crazed apple finatics just buy and buy as much apple products as they can because they are obsessed and cant think for themselves!

Ummm 166 know what you're talking about before you comment. Bill Gates is with Microsoft not Apple. Steve Jobs is the one that just left Apple. Also Apple is better, fewer crashes better performance.

Umm Steve Jobs stepped down as CEO but will stay on the board I think medically he needs to rest

Get your facts right before you try to comment you stupid little bit*ch

Actually it's true it totally made it all muffled for mine and i had the volume on max...chill out

Ha ha I did the same thing.. Not demanding tho. But funny anyhow. I wanted to keep as much protection on the phone as possible and wasn't aware that those didn't have earholes. They sell sheets to replace those

I do. That's the first thing I do to a new phone or whatever. And if I'm playing with someone else's phone, I always ask if I can peel their stickers off. They usually say no. The stickers really, really bother me.

Why do you have an iPhone if you don't know how to use it?

Maybe you shouldn't jump to conclusion.

Unless you have a "Jump to Conclusions" mat.

Exactly, you can't even plug it up without moving the tab.

Some people cut it off and leave the rest on for protection

People must be too cheap to spend 10.00 on a 3 pk of screen protectors personally I don't use one the screen is too pretty but I do have a case and am thankful I do

Mine didn't have a tab and i was waiting for the screen protectors I ordered to come in so I didn't take off the protector and stupidly thought the phone was busted or retarded cuz the voice was so low..... Honest mistake, it's all good OP

I did that minus the going to the apple store looking like a fake technology *****.

and he's getting paid the big bucks to peel protective seals off

And on the flip side, I went in to an Apple store several times to try a fix a warbling sound that only happened when I listened to podcasts. Three Apple guys failed to notice that I had inadvertently set the playback speed on 2x. Didn't earn their money there.

Funny thing.. It actually happened to a friend of mine like yesterday.. So its not just you.. Next time just pay closer attention..

Do your parents know the type of people you hang with?
