And since you don't understand the concept of reading memos that were leaked from Apple, try this piece from the OFFICIAL iPhone return policy for ALL APPLE STORES:http://store.apple.com/Catalog/US/Im...#iphonereturns
First, that's not the Apple retail store policy. That's the online policy. The retail policy is that they only charge restocking on non-defective items. If you're so sure that you can prove that it's defective, then you won't have to pay restocking fees.
OK. So you finally admitted that you don't own one. So what is all your whining about? If there's a better phone out there, buy that instead. Bitching because the iPhone isn't 100% perfect in every way is foolish. It's impossible to make a phone that can't be improved some day.

People can disagree on that, but its been turned into a meme about frivolous litigation without merit.
Actually, your explanation is not correct. Apple did not claim that they served it hot to increase throughput (in fact, throughput would be higher if they didn't heat it so high). Apple's explanation is that their consumer research indicated that:
1. Customers EXPECTED hot coffee to be hot.
2. Customers preferred it at the higher temperature.

I think most of the whiners fit into one of the following categories:
1. They're upset because Mommy won't buy them an iPhone/iMac/MBP/iPad/etc
2. They're upset because they bought Microsoft stock instead of Apple stock 5 years ago
3. Their shills with a hidden agenda (like the Adobe employees who keep posting on the Flash issue or Flash 'programmers' posting on the same topic or ties to Apple's competition
Ordinarily, I would add:
4. Steve Jobs stole their girlfriend
but it's obvious that most of these people never had a girlfriend and probably won't until they move out of Mommy and Daddy's basement.

You really might want to learn what TRUTH means.
1. Apple didn't throw anyone off a rooftop. Neither did Foxconn
2. Those employees are treated better than average employees in the area, particularly now that they've had a 100% raise
3. The suicide rate for those employees was no greater than the reported average for China
Too bad you couldn't post something useful and accurate for your first post.

The discussion was about iPhone 4 and someone suggested that anyone not happy with the iPhone 4 could simply return it. You said your wife and stepdaughter would be unhappy. Sounds like you're pretending that they have iPhone 4.
THAT is exactly why this anecdotal crap is useless. Please either outright lying or presenting half truths intended to mislead.

Accurate information? From an Apple-hater?
Yes it is:http://rds.yahoo.com/_ylt=A0oG784lyy...retail_us.html
NON-DEFECTIVE items have a 10% restocking fee. If you're so sure your phone is defective and can prove it, there's no restocking fee. Seems more than fair.
So where's the proof that these phones are dropping calls? I've been asking throughout this thread and no one has provided any evidence that it's a real problem. Anand's tests indicate that the iPhone 4 actually drops LESS calls than previous phones.
