CAUTION: If you're getting your iPhone Serviced At the Genius Bar!!
Ok, last week i was having trouble with my 16GB iPhone 3G, I was having signal problems, and also the phone will turn off once and a while even during a call. I tried restoring to no avail. I would still get one bar in a place where i would normally get all bars. So i did what anyone would probably do and set up an appointment at my nearest apple store.
So i go to the "Genius Bar" and they take a look at my phone. The apple tech told me that there was something wrong with the antenna so he immediately replaced my phone with a refurb (Which i didn't have a problem with because my phone was starting to have some wear and tear).
So i walk out the store with a new phone and i go straight to work. Because i was busy with work that whole week, i didn't have time to pwn my iphone, let alone add songs or contacts. So on my day off i start pwning my phone and adding contacts, i realized something strange on itunes. It said that I had 7GB of space left out of 8GB. ..... I WAS PISSED!! the apple tech gave me a 8GB instead of my 16GB. Now i was really upset but i realized that it was partially my fault for not checking before i left the store....or so i thought.
So again....i set up an appointment at the "genius bar" and explained the situation. The most funniest/Shocking thing happened. The Tech looked at my record of past iphones/Transactions and said "the database says i've only had a 8GB model" .... So they're telling me that im pretty much screwed. I ask for a manager. the manager says that theirs nothing in the database that proves that i had a 16GB iphone so i pull out my receipt from Best Buy which turned out to be useless because the receipt doesn't contain the iphones serial number...for all they knew it could've been bobs iphone receipt.
So they're ready to dismiss me and I GIVE'EM HELL. I tell them im not leaving until i get my 16GB IPHONE, and the longer i stay, the louder i get. They eventually gave up and gave me back my 16GB but the moral of the story is..ALWAYS CHECK YOUR IPHONE BEFORE LEAVING THE APPLE STORE AFTER GETTING YOUR IPHONE REPAIRED/REPLACED.

Wow....what amazes me is the fact that they had NO record of your past appointment and thus, serial #??? Thats ridiculous.
Just another reason I like my white. No mistaking that
