I Exchanged my 4 to 8
Yea, i called apple today and i have been spoken to in a very rude way... i got forwarded from 3 representive to the manager of the store where i pruchased my phone from...
I decided not to give up and that i fully deserve a refund.
i went to the store and asked them to give me a refund for my discontinued phone which was 200 for differnce they didnt wanna give it to me so i asked if i could exchange my 4 for 8 and she said yes with stockign fee of 10% which is 50 buck.. and then i said ok we will do it... and then the iphone was bought for 500 so the 8 now is 400 so theres a differnce of 100 so the restocking fee was 50 and i got around 57$ back...
Well anyways, now im satisfied.. i got an 8 gig phone with refunded money... i dont feel scammed on but i still feel pretty pissed off
i bought it the 2nd day it came out, June 30th
any comment? ^^

Great, glad to see more people are doing this. I did the same only in a nice way.(they waived the restocking fee too 8 is better than 4 right?? and the 100 cash wasnt so bad either.

Tomer, no no i don't think your lying, i didn't know if you had an exchange receipt i could maybe get a copy from you to show proof people are doing it, in case they wanna be pricks and not let me do it.

AT&T are thieves they wont.. but u will need a receipt from the apple store to ttry and exchange it there.. anyways.. u can give it a shot.. nothing to lose.. more to gain
09-06-2007, 06:27 AM #17
goddd... I don't have my receipt
I bought one in cash and one with the credit card. Do you think they'd be able to trace back the activation with the serial numbers or anything???
also, did you restore your phone before bringing it in??? DId you have a lot of mods done to it? I woke up this early anyway.. I'm gunna go give it a shot..
09-06-2007, 08:57 AM #18
you definately must restore it to oem, the mods technically kill the warranty so make sure there is no traceq
09-06-2007, 08:59 AM #19I really want to believe this , but I guess I don't
I've been on the phone most of the morning with att and apple and they both said that I had 14 days to return it but now its too late. The girl at att store even told me that I'd "have to eat" the 200 bux.
It appears to be policy. I just wanted the 4 to 8 upgrade and I offered to pay the restock, but no luck.
I just dont believe the return success stories
