Question: iPhone 8 Plus Freezing on startup screen
For the third time, my brand new iPhone 8 Plus has hopelessly frozen on the startup (Apple) screen. A hard reset only yields the same result. A useless phone. The first time, I was traveling and had to drive an hour to the nearest city that had an Apple Store. They re-downloaded the software from iTunes and it was fine for about a week. Then the second time it froze (Last Friday), I was able to go to the Apple Store from which I purchased it (NYC). They gave me a new phone, but took the SIM card from the frozen phone and put it in the "new" new phone. Today, it did it again. Frozen. Useless (And if anyone asks me again if I have tried a hard reset, I'll scream). I will have to go to the Apple Store again tomorrow morning. So far, I have spent 9 hours of my time traveling to and sitting in an Apple Store to get this thing to work. Not looking forward to adding to those hours. I cannot keep doing this for an $800 phone. So.... is it the SIM card?? Carrier??? (Verizon) Anybody.....?????
