I bet if you googled "phone sets itself on fire" you'll find plenty of different models that have done similar.
edit: I googled it myself and quite a lot of results for iPhone 4 and a HTC within the first couple of pages. Look how many iPhones are still sold....

Good thing, I'm buying a white S3 within 2 weeks, it will be a huge upgrade over my current Sony Ericson w810i, haven't upgraded phone since 2006. eek.gif
