My iphone charger burned me!

I didnt know who to tell after this happened and i had seen an earlier post about somone being burnt by their iphone 3G, so i thought this would be a good place to tell my story. So, I woke up this morning and was walking around with my shoes off, when i stepped on somthing hot and burnt my foot. I looked down and saw a warped and charred iphone 3G charger that i had recently got with the phone. I called Apple and they said they could get me into a local apple store to replace the burnt charger, but when i went the guys there had no idea what i was talking about and told me that i would need an appointment to talk to anyone. I then just asked to buy a new one because i didnt want to wait around all day, and somone else working there saw the burnt charger i was carying and replaced mine for a new one. My foot has a nasty blister on it from stepping on that charger tho. Kinda sucks my floor got burnt a bit too. I wonder why this happnd...

what shud i do?

i'm thinking a faulty charger? i wouldn't sue or anything like that. if you are able to get the charger exchanged for a new one, then that should satisfy you.  unless of course you ended up in ER with third degree burns or the like.

If you want to help others, go to the Apple forums and see if any others did this. If enough people dock complaints, Apple will recall and replace the chargers so no one else gets burned. Imagine if a baby or a pet got on that and was severely burned or killed?

BTW, just for safety, I always charge via my computer and the charger that I got in 2004 with my iPod Mini. It charges everything from the Mini to my iPhone, and it's always on my desk so no little ones can get to it. =)

Maybe it was supposed to be a feature. So that you could toast marshmallows when you weren't charging your phone. Too bad you already took it back ;)

If they already exchanged it there's not much you can do. I agree with posting in the Apple forums. Maybe they'll take notice. I would have been livid for quite some time if this had happened to me. Luckily I'm in no danger of stepping my cord.

*UPDATE*

Somone from the apple store near me called saying "Yea, im going to need you to bring in your phone to get replaced also, the engineers are going to need to look at it". Great, after having all this hassle with the charger now i hafta set up my phone all over again go to the store, when my phone is working perfectly... Im not too happy at this point.

If you restore it it's supposed to be good as new. I'm sure there is technically a way to find out but hopefully they won't delve too deep. Hatin' this for you.

I didn't have to reset everything when my phone was replaced. They have SIM cards in them that basically saved everything off of my phone. Of course this wasn't a 3G phone though.
