She used my phone to call her phone, and then we proceeded to let it sit for ten minutes to see if the battery dropped between 6-10%.
Like I said....very technical. Sigh.
You can probably tell how this ended up. My phone, according to this test, was "fine". However, they recommended I take it to the Apple store and they could run a true diagnostic. *Slaps forehead*.
Running out of steam after that disastrous errand trip, it has taken me awhile to make plans to get it into a store. This last weekend, I was sipping some coffee at a little shop near our apartment, and decided I needed to get my ipad in to have the home button looked at, and could then take my phone in too.
Low and behold. Apple could run a real test and what did they find?
Oh just that my battery has failed in my iphone. Ha! Haha! Ha! Verizon.
Back to a Verizon store- armed with my "doctors note" from the genius bar, stating that my phone was on its last legs. Naturally, Verizon apologized profusely, said they were so sorry I had to go through all that trouble, whipped out a brand new iphone, and sent me on my merry little way.
After a 45 minute wait. I was so lucky as to have to explain this whole situation about five times to the Verizon customer service person, who tried to send a replacement phone to my parents address, ordered the wrong color, and also could not understand for the life of them why I wouldn't have just had apple fix my phone. Maybe because I have an issuance policy with YOU and not apple.
Needless to say, after a lot of time. I just opened up my new-to-me iphone that hopefully has a much better battery situation going on.
Wish me luck!
