That's funny. Really, be a comedian.
Smooth experience? Have you ever been to the Genius bar? - My iPod stopped playing music in one ear, I booked an appointment, and when I arrived, they told me the Water-Contact indication strip has been tripped (bear in mind, it's never gotten wet, it spends its whole life in an iPod dock or in a case.) and he told me
"If there's condensation on the iPod, that will do it." and as I asked him what the rates were for an replacement, he told me to leave the premises or he would call security. Naturally I sent a complaint to the Manager of the store, and received no response. Good one, Apple.
Other than that, my friend (naturally a perfectionist) had been through 16 or so iPhone 4's, trying to get one that is 100% free of manufacturing defects, dust under the screen, slight scratches on the side, water marks on the back, broken headphone jacks, broken dock connectors, the lot.) All of these problems were obviously seen as big enough for him to receive a free replacement (obviously in exchange for his old one!) and it never got better, in the end they told him they would not replace a model he had received, with a crack on the back of the phone. Good one, Apple.
He's now switched to Android, and he's exchanged a single S3 for a new one, and is 100% happy this S3 is perfect.
