Anyone else having iPhone 6 crashes

I activated my new phone on Sept. 30. It worked fine till Oct 5th. It crashed with a black screen. It wouldn't do anything. If I pushed the sleep button or the home button a few times Siri would speak up and tell me "there has been a mishap please try again in a little bit." It never cleared. I had to go to a fast food emporium to get internet access, log in to iTunes, then hold the sleep button and home button and plug in with a USB all at the same time. Not easy to do but I pulled it off. The next day it crashed three times and has crashed at least once every day since. Once in iTunes it wakes the phone up and you can check for updates, reset to original settings and such. This is bs. I am running the latest OS and it still crashes every day. I am paying verizon wireless a lot of money to have a device that is unreliable, crashes, and becomes useless without warning. They really need to get this sorted out.

Once I activated the phone, I used iCloud and downloaded my personal

"stuff" to the phone. Everything was working fine for five consecutive days

then the crashing started. Sometimes the screen is black but often as not

you can get to the home screen but have a blank screen when you open an app

or it will not proceed with opening the app to perform functions. It has

not been near water and hasn't been dropped. On Sunday Oct. 5 I used the

personal hot spot to access the internet in the morning then shut down

after an hour or so, leaving the hot spot function turned on. Later that

afternoon I tried to go on the internet and the phone was "frozen" with the

black screen and no functions at all. I called customer support and that's

when I did the "fast food visit" to get the phone back up. I did a restore

and everything came back. The next morning the phone was frozen again. This

has been happening everyday, sometimes several times a day. I been able to

get it back every time even when not making an internet connection, but I

have to open iTunes and plug in to USB while holding the home button and

sleep button and the phone will go to the white screen with the Apple logo

for a few seconds then every thing comes back. If I don't have my laptop

handy, I'm dead in the water. Not Acceptable!!!

Arizonajim,

I am definitely sorry to hear your phone is acting this way. However, if you just received the phone on September 30th, you are within your 14 days Worry Free Guarantee. The device can be swapped out for a brand new device at your local Verizon Wireless store if it was purchased directly through Verizon Wireless. And by directly I mean via our website, a corporate Verizon Wireless store or via Customer Service.

Thanks. I will probably end up missing the 14 day window. I am traveling on

family business and will probably not be able to get to a Verizon store

till the 15th or a day later. I am guessing that the availability of a

replacement is probably pretty slim. I have a Verizon store about an hour

and a half away from my current location but they are closed by now and I

have some business in the morning that I can't miss. Sorry I didn't get

back to you sooner but it CRASHED AGAIN!!!! And it was purchased directly

through customer service. There should be a record of my calls this past

weekend calling for tech support on the problem.

Arizonajim,

I completely understand not having time to stop at a store location. If you have the time please reach out to our Customer Service team as they can place the order for you as well. After the 15th day then a warranty replacement is what we will send you. No worries, just reach out to us when you have time so we can further assist you and ensure your phone is working as it should be.

Thanks, I will contact customer service in the morning and see what I can

do. I can try to get to a Verizon store before the end of the week, most

likely Wednesday. Since I am visiting family I have an address that it

could be sent to, but it isn't my normal or billing address so the store

may be the best option.

Just an update: I contacted customer care and tech support this morning.

They think it is the phone and are shipping a replacement to me overnight.

Should get it tomorrow.
