What about Bendgate, Apple has any plan to fix weak point in 6+

The only weak point is you're still bringing this up.

Move on.

I have an idea. How about they quit adding countries until they get all the people in America that pre-ordered their phone on 9/12 their phones.

There is more in the world than just murica. Go eat a pizza bagel.

What about stop selling to the US until everyone else has got their iPhones.

Seems we, for whatever reason were in line first. Lets say you get to a restaurant and are given a 3 hr wait and I walk in 3 minutes behind you and they take me right in, I'm sure that won't bother you at all??
