What’s up everyone, welcome back to my computers and electronics blog! I am riled up to post something today, as it just blew up in my face quite unfairly no my opinion. A couple months ago I bought an iPhone with the help of a friend who brought me to a fairly reputably place to purchase iPhones in the area I live in. I was a little skeptical when the ‘brand new’ iPhone had a sticker on the bottom speaker that resembled the little gold sticker you see on the porcelain figures your grandmother has, but I decided to trust the process. Little did I know this would be seen as a terrible idea less than 24 hours later.

The next day I brought my unscathed phone to a friends house, and the issue started. I was trying to connect to the wi-fi when the phone would start typing in random characters. This would start out small, and then get so bad that I couldn’t do anything on the phone unless I put it to sleep. This would only sometimes fix the problem, sometimes though you wouldn’t even be able to open the phone. But I bought it from a lady yelling at about 4 people at once in a store blatantly stealing their logo from a real company so there's obviously no return policy.

The phone officially died this morning, and I can’t tell if I am upset or relieved. I can finally go and get a new phone and not have a somewhat working $200 brick sitting there. On the other hand, I spent $200 on a phone that is no longer working at all and I don’t have the money for a new one. Have any of you been duped by these iPhonies before?
