Geez, you paid Samsung shills never quit, do you? Apple discovered a problem (by being alerted by users, obviously) and fixed it. Verizon didn't do this, and Apple didn't benefit from it. It's cause an 'unintended programming error'. Apple did the correct thing. It's fixed now. Over and done with.

OK, it's bad enough when the 'Samsung shills' steal my id, but when the apple fans do it too I figure it's about time to quite using my own ID. Can't anyone claim credit for their own comments anymore?
