iPhone 4 Catches Fire, Burns Hand And Melts Cable

Apple is already having lots of problems due to the antenna issue and now BGR is reporting that a very close AT&T sources have sent them some images of the latest iPhone 4. You may think what’s so exciting in that! But the shocking part is that, those are not the unboxing images of the latest iPhone, but those images shows the iPhone 4 in a miserable condition. Just have a look at the image below.

This image shows the burned iPhone 4 and the melted USB port. According to BGR, an iPhone 4 customer stepped into an AT&T store with the iPhone that caught fire. The customer said that the phone caught fire when he tried to connect it to his computer to sync using the Apple USB cable. The fire damaged the phone, USB port as well as burned his hand.

One of our very close AT&T sources just sent us in these images. Apparently a customer brought the phone into the store to try and get help with it, although it’s pretty evident that the phone is unrepairable. It’s the first time our guy has seen this happen (us too), but the brand new iPhone 4 caught on fire while being hooked up to a computer using the Apple USB cable that accompanied the device. The customer wanted to exchange the iPhone — obviously — for a new, non-charred unit however the AT&T store in question was out of stock.
