Apple whinge – update

Wet iPhone

I received my iPhone 3G back via Mobistar without any issue. It was completely dead flat so I’m not convinced that Dynafix even attempted to charge it before announcing it was water damaged. Anyway, I took it home and gave it a full overnight charge and it is functioning normally. The surprising thing is that the battery actually seems to be lasting longer now. Maybe it just needed a holiday. I can generally get through a full day at work (bearing in mind I don’t actually use it much at work) as it goes red about 4pm but then gets a top-up in my car charger so that there is enough juice for my gym session. I use the frankly brilliant iFitness application to record my workouts.

So anyway, long story short, I haven’t bothered to replace the battery or open the phone. While it is still functioning adequately I’ll leave it alone. If the battery life drops again like it did in the past then I will do something about it. I’m sure none of you will be surprised to hear that Dynafix completely ignored all subsequent emails requesting contact details to make a complaint. Very unprofessional and I’ve heard from a friend who works at an authorised Apple reseller that Dynafix are a nightmare to deal with and they have constant complaints from customers whose warranty claims have been rejected due to water damage.

Anyway, the new iPhone will likely be announced officially in the next few weeks so I am holding out for that. I know, sucker for punishment, but aside from the battery issues my 3G has been just so damn useful! Before I make any decision I will at least take a look at some of the new Android phones… and then I’ll buy another iPhone.
