Still waiting to get a 5s that isn't defective in some way.

1st phone (got on launch day): Nonstop crashes.
2nd: Home button defective.
3rd: Even more nonstop crashes + blue screen of death.

But hey, Apple is being helpful so let's just hope that the one I get on Friday is a good one. I guess it's bad luck? :apple:

Ok, the 2nd one I can see, but 1 and 3.... I need pics

Ever think you got a defective unit and ask for replacement? You know, millions has been sold and there are no news that significant number have complaints like yours

I did. That's why I'm getting another replacement, and called it bad luck. Did you read the post?

make sure they have a lot of gold colors for Saudi Arabia

I see a girl using a white 5c, my first thought was, that's a shame, she either couldn't get a 5s or can't afford it.

Or....she didn't want to spend the money since some people really don't use the 'newer' features the latest model has to offer.
