I am so mad today I want to scream and I just may! Today’s WTFriday has me steaming!
My son misplaced his tablet and I can’t find it anywhere. I keep old phones for many reasons. The biggest reason well…I am not buying the kiddo another tablet, he can use an old phone to play games on.
I have 2 android phones. One I bought in 2007 and one in 2011. Both came on fine and I am able to get on WiFi for him to play Disney junior games. Also I am able to get some apps for games on them. This will be his tablet. I also have an iPhone 3G. The iPhone 3G came out in 2008 and I bought it in 2011 when I went to AT&T so I have only had this phone just about 3-years. Well it will be 3 years for me come June 2014. I CAN’T USE IT!
I hate APPLE and I have another reason yet today with this iPhone.
I can’t even get into the stupid phone to get on my homes WiFi. I am not able to even get into the phones settings to clear it out if I wanted to give it away for emergency calls. Yes it will allow emergency calls. So not donating a phone with info on it as some hacker might be able to crack it. I don’t know.
Here is what the screen says today…DISABLED!
Yes you see that correct. I can try again in 23,042,308 minutes. So here is the math in how many days/years that is.
60 minutes per hour x 24 hours = 1440 minutes per day
1440 minutes per day x 365 days in a year = 525600 minutes per year
Yearly minutes / by iphone disable minutes = 43.84 years until this iphone is enabled!!!
Now I may have screwed up my math. If anyone finds a mess up on the math let me know. I was super mad when I calculated it.
My hubs is an IT guy and I asked him about this. He told me that he has had experience with the original iPads too and they no longer allow you to install apps on them or update the apps you have. THIS IS RIDICULOUS!
So you buy a phone for about $300+ dollars, or for any price and you are told when to stop using it?! I don’t want to call on it I want to use the WiFi etc. It’s my freaking phone! Oh and I can’t get to my pictures either! Thanks goodness I backed those up.
I have Android phones older then this piece of junk apple iPhone and my son is playing on them now!!
I have decided today that I will NEVER buy an apple product again…period. What a waste. We are being so controlled in the US anymore. With all the government crap going on with the all the penalties if you don’t do exactly what they say and NOW this! We don’t live in a free country anymore. We live in a controlled country and it’s getting worse. APPLE you sick and I hope you lose business because of this. IPads were very expensive and still are. Why can’t original iPad users and iPhone users still use their phones and iPads? What APPLE, you don’t make enough money?
I would like to see Hollywood producers start using more Androids in their movies and TV shows. I am pretty convinced that Hollywood is the only reason why iPhone and iPads are even as popular as they are. People see them in the movies or with a celebrity and all of a sudden they are the godlike thing to have…dumb!
Happy WTFriday from a very pissed of EX APPLE Customer!!!!
Please share if you hate APPLE as much as I do…lol!
I would love your WTFriday story to share!
Well it is still counting down after multiple restarts over the past few days. It is truly counting down though as the numbers are decreasing. I tried plugging it into my computer and it gives me an error. I don’t know the exact words but basically that my 3G phone is too old to update. So I cannot reset the clock as the only thing I can do is swipe the screen and get emergency call. I think I might video myself smashing the heck out of the phone here soon. Not any use to me and I am still pissed off about it…lol
