Not a big deal, but one which will get the haters all fired up about how evil Apple is.
The phones will get checked, found they're OK, and will be on their way in a few days tops. This is just a procedural issue, that's all. Since Apple won a case against HTC last year, it was bound to happen (shipments stopped for a check before resuming to their destination).

It's not even a feature! It's basically copy-paste, without showing you the intermediary steps. There's no other way to do it on a phone that shows the number on the same screen you would use to input it.
This is crazy. How can anyone patent something like this? I am so glad i don't live in the US. US is killing itself with patent trolls companies like Apple.Which reminds me again, i'll never buy an Apple product. Good thing Steve Jobs is rotting in Hell now.
Shame, that's all I got to say and I own an iPhone 4. This kills the competition and if it carries on like this then we'll have no other alternatives. Google needs to step up and do something or they'll soon lose Android partners to Microsoft!
I like Apple fine but this is stupid to me and Apple doesn't need to patent troll like I think they've been doing. The HTC One X is a beautiful phone (if Android is your thing) and it's a shame any delay happens where it's concerned.

Apple doesn't care about RIM as they're not a threat or competition.
