handset warranty help please

i have an iphone 3g that i would like apple to do a warranty exchange on. I have had the phone since 11/08 and have recently been having issues with the phone powering off. I went into the apple store... and after waiting 30 mins to get help the rep told me he has to see the issue to swap me out. Unfortunately I didnt have all day to stand around and wait for it to pwr off, the rep only hung out with me for about 5 mins anyway. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the right thing to say is to get an exchange? I dont live very close to the nearest store and would rather not waste my time driving out there again just to be turned away in 5 minutes after waiting an hour to get help. Thanks very much for the help.

Still missing

Can anyone tell me that between App Store and Apple itself, why there isn't a Video capture feature yet for this phone? I'm really blow away that it's not an option. You go to Photography in the app store and there is 25 apps telling you how to set an F-stop.

Problems with being able to hang up!!!!

Evil or Very Mad I'm really getting mad that I am not able to hang up my iphone 90% of the time. Almost every time I take the phone away from my face, the screen wont light back up so I can hit the end call button. I have to shake it to death of keep hitting it on something hard for it to wake up so I can hang up. If that fails then I have to constantly hit the home button till it comes back awake. Anybody else having this problem? Any ideas how to stop it!!!

New to iPhone I have 2 questions???

Hey fellow scoopers, I have 2 questions, first is, what's a good ring tone program that I can use that will work with 2.1?? i followed some instructions that I found online, but I only got as far as making a ring tones folder in my itunes and on my iPhone. Is it as simple as changing the file name and click and drag or is there more?
Also how can I convert my videos to MPEG-4 so that they will work on my phone, Thanks for your help Very Happy

we deserve some type of credit for Apples F--- up

I havent been able to communicate with anyone for 5 hours now. I really think that apple or att should reimburse their customers who purchased the 3g iphone something for this huge f.up. whether it be a free activation or a credit of some type to our accounts

Missed Notification Reminder?

Ok so I just upgraded to the 3g iPhone last night and unlocked it and all that good stuff. Well I have noticed that after about 5 minutes if I do not unlock my phone and view the text the text noise will sound again. Anyone else have this problem? Or is this something that is suppose to happen? If so anyway to turn this feature off? Thanks

Digital copies of movies on iPhone?

Help Sad
I have a bunch of those free digital copies of movies (that come with the DVD itself) in my iTunes library, and I can't for the life of me figure out how to get them on my iPhone.

I found something about having to convert them to a certain type of file, but I'm confused. Confused

Thanks!

New Iphone

So I am debating between getting the new blackberry or waiting for the new iphone. I'm sure the new iphone will be a 3g phone, and it would be amazing if it had ichat as an application.

The question is, ABOUT when should we expect the new iphone to come out?

This will help me determine if I should get the blackberry or continue patiently waiting for a new, good phone for ATT.

My worst nightmare

Sorry guys but I had this phone for like three weeks and it was AWEFUL! I had constant problems the 3G never ever worked. Itunes is some sort of joke that crashed constantly. I literally had to go to Starbucks to download music. At least TMobile has their 3G in line. Surprised It was HORRIBLE! I am not give the phone a bad rating because lets face it... you can't put negative 5. Honestly I think I am going to give the Android a shout we shall see. I mean after having this wreak of a phone it would definately be worth it to get something much better!

Mophie

Hi, I'm doing research to decide on my next phone. I like the iphone to the extent that I know about it, which is not a lot when I read this forum.

One concern I have is for battery life. I'm planning on using it as my primary music player, as well as phone, so I don't have to carry two machines. I saw the mophie and wondered what people thought of it.

Does anyone have experience with this product for iphone? http://www.mophie.com/

thanks.
