Apple to the Rescue!
I have owned every Apple iPhone since the first one. This week was the first time I had issues with one. The battery indicator was false, and even after I reset the battery (let it die down and then recharged it to full), the problem wouldn't go away. Plus the phone restarted itself twice. Strange.
Last night I made an appointment on my phone to meet with an Apple Genius. I was a little worried since I wondered if the phone was acting up because several months ago it fell off my bike mount and hit the street. Also, I didn't purchase AppleCare for it like I did for my laptop.
I only had to wait 10 minutes at the store. The Genius guy was very professional. He did a diagnostic test on my phone and showed me the results. The battery was defective. He gave me a new phone! I was relieved and amazed! And, now there are no street scratches on my phone, so I should get top price for it from Gazelle or NextWorth when the next phone comes out.
Life is good.
