Screw Whinny iPhone Owners
You know what, most Apple customers are whinny bitches. If any other phone company or provider did this nobody would get a dime, other than the return policy. Why should Apple owe you anything. I commend Apple and Steve Jobs for even offering the store credit, that didn't have to do anything for you. You got exactly what you paid for, and iPhone at market price on that day. Nowhere does Apple or AT&T have a 30 Day price guarantee, if you want that, hit up Best Buy or another high volume retailer.
And yes, I own plenty of Apple gear. Probably way more than most of you, so stick it.
