This past Saturday my iPhone 5c suffered a massive seizure and died. I had been having problems connecting to Verizon’s cellular network for the last two months, and normally the issue would solve itself after a few hours, but this time it wouldn’t going away, so I paid a visit to the local Verizon store. The staff there took a look at it and gave my phone a new SIM card, in addition to doing some other troubleshooting. The problem remained, so they suggested paying a visit to the nearby Apple store to have them check and see if it was a software issue. At the Apple store the staff there did some more work on the phone, but also with no success. With the other avenues exhausted, it was decided that the phone would be restored to factory settings, which would wipe out all the phone’s data and make it like it had been back when I first acquired it. The restoration process was going along fine, but then got stuck in during the final 5% of the process. Nothing done by the Apple staff or myself could get the phone working again, and it was pronounced dead on the spot.
Once invaluable, now worthless
