Thinking what will Apple say about this??
You're holding the Iphone wrong...!

I think Apple will actually ask, "well what type of pants was he wearing"
14. rf1975 (Posts: 254; Member since: 01 Aug 2011)
No. This is because the iPhone was in Nokia's territory. (I mean in Finland close to Nokia’s headquarters).

Apple will say
"yep they are selling like hot pan cakes. There you go the proof why iPhone is sizziling/sexy hot"

official apple reply...
nothing happened you were seeing dust on the security camera lens that appeared to be smoke. The iPhone does NOT self ignite because the fine people at apple would tell you if it would do so and no one told you your iPhone could self ignite so it simply can not do so
if you simply do not place the phone in a confined space like a pocket it would not be able to build up heat and ignite why on earth would you want to spend so much on such a fine device and hide it in a pocket what the hell is wrong with you if you have a problem with it getting hot you can get a batman utility belt with iPhone holster and built in cooling fan

Be specific dude!! It's not iphone with android but with galaxy s.... then what version of iphone? Ah I know now iphone from 2007 until 2012 including iphone 5 or the new iphone are the same. Obviously yes. Father, are you not feel bored about it?! Lol!!
You're iphone is losing it's crowning glory, having an os that most android users enjoy using it when android eclair was released.
We will be having a party with jelly bean, you're welcome to join but make sure JB is installed in your iphone. Lol!!

Actually I plan to change into a galaxy nexus .
I wanted a OneX but updates are slower .
Sales show the there are more iPhone 4/4S vs galaxy s2/s3 combined .
I am just pointing out a fact .
I hate you type of fanboys that Bash people just because I say something negative against android
If I state a fact , doesn't mean I owned an iPhone

At the expense of a cute Finnish boy's leg????? No Apple should just quit at life!!! lol

But actually iPhone got exploded first. They are seeking ban on SIII for the recent explosion, they are proving it is inherited with Apple so no one can use it. :P

When you buy an iPhone you get extra fireworks

Are we sure that the phone wasn't a replacement or a repaired unit from a third party shop, like the one in Australia?
Not an iPhone fan, but they generally don't combust. There could have been some extenuating circumstances.
23. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)
Yeah, there has to be. That is way beyond something that should/could/has happened due to standard manufacturer defect.

I'ld like to post this in my FB wall, one of my friend is a fan of Apple and telling he never hear a iPhone burnt.. :D

Apple will surely implement it in iPhone 5.
And their sales will break the previous records
because it will be widely used by Terrorists.

I think Samsung will beat Apple by introducing a improved version of this feature in next Galaxy series phone.

Actually when Samsung GSIII explode there were chance to tell that the charger was wrong, what about now?

I hope the kids alright. If that were me, i would have left it on my pocket pretending I didn't notice till it started to burn me badly. Then i would have sued in vengeance of Samsung. Just me being insane here move along....DON'T RELPY!!!!!

Apple heard that the Army was going with Android and developed this. Those f**king terrorists won't even know what got 'em!

When the recent SGS3 burnt or something, people said Apple was behind it.
So, is it ok if I say Samsung is behind this?
No. Things happen. Cud have been worst. Hope the guy is alright.
I just hope my Xperia S doesn't burn while I'm driving, I'd panic and crash! Lol
27. plgladio (Posts: 314; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Yes you could as long as you don't like Samsung products. :D

Well I'll be. This was great. first time I saw a iPhone incerated itself. must be a new app that does it automatically

a few things came to mind while watching this video 1) it's on qik. qik is a social video app, where i noticed the video was a bit shaky. at first i thought it was from a security camera then i watched closer. 2) i turned up the volume and i heard a persons voice a moment later after his pants started smoking.
now i'm sure this could be possible but with this in mind, i don't think it actually happened the way it was... possible hoax or delibertly caused.... just saying, the video was a bit skecthy.

They used a mobile phone to film the screen that they were watching the surveillance video on. That's why the video is on qik and why the video was a bit shaky

My grand daughters Iphone 6+ caught on fire and Apple is refusing to replace it. She had just rode down the road and went into the gym and laid it down on the floor. Later a woman noticed that it was on fire. Not smoking but on fire. It was purchased in April 2015. I think this is a shame that a company as big as Apple refuses to replace it. It almost burned a hole in the floor and smoked up the whole room full of children and adults.
