2 weeks ago when my iphone 3G stopped charging I made an appt at my local Apple Store. I was told it was user error and was not covered, the charging element was bent. Sigh. Well, to be truthful, I was secretly happy. I have had it over 1 1/2 years so I qualified for a $199 upgrade. That's right, $199. Without a new 2 year agreement with at&t it will run you $500ish. So, HELLO 3GS. Today while standing in line at the Home Depot I removed my phone from its holster on my belt and wouldn't you know it, more user error.
