***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team

I put this Video on Forum  For Viewing Purposes Only:

I first heard about this on the News that customers that own the  iPhone 6 +  were seeing Bending of there phone..  I said Na that can't happen can it, but I ran across this youtube video the Guy Demonstrating For SCIENCE Testing purposes only,  showed that it can happen..

I'd say if you Buy this model of iPhone by a Case with it, One that will help give it Extra Strength along the back and Sides maybe like an Otterbox Defender.!  And hopefully it will help give it some Extra strength...

The only scenario I see this happening are those people who carry their phones in their back pockets and then sit on them. It won't happen to phones that are properly taken care of.

It can also happen on the front pocket when you sit. If the iPhone gets caught on the hip and they you'll get the same effect as if you are trying to bend the device with what that video protrays.

I have an Otterbox on my 6 so I guess I'm ok lol. But seriously...is this a true "defect"? Or is it what was intended? Haven't looked at the video or anything nor did I notice anything strange the few days I had my phone without a case. Bet if it becomes a huge issue Apple will have a LOT of replacements to make

Well that is what I was thinking as well..  Apple hasn't said anything I know of,  I'm assuming if the issue grows they address it as they did with antenna issue.. but hopefully this stay a minimal issue.. at the conclusion of the story the reporter said if your bends you can replace it, I wonder how many has run by the store for a replacement..

Yeah I was reading about this earlier today. Apparently it appear to be more of an issue with the 6 Plus versus the 6, but can happen also with the 6 if not careful. I have an Otterbox Defender case on order for my 6 due to arrive tomorrow, will be glad to get this thing protected somewhat.

I was trying to wait for the Otterbox website to get the color combo of the Defender I wanted instock but it was taking too long so I just picked one up at my local VZW store. Had one on my 5 and it still looks brand new so I thought it best to stick with what I know lol
