    I would roll with the I was upgrading to 1.1.4 and then my power flickered during the installation of the firmware. Its legit because its happened to people...

    Does the phone turn on? As long as its not Jailbroken, you'll be able to get a replacement from apple for free. Just go "ajl917"s idea about the upgrade. Tell them you were upgrading the software and it flickered, and now its like this. Make sure you have an ATT Sim card in there though.

    was it ever legitly activated?? thats what they look for. if you go to the support website check to see warranty status. when i went to exchange mine thats what they told me. so i activated through itunes on one of the work phones and then went back. they exchanged no questions asked.

    cliff notes: the warranty kicks in when activated through itunes.

    Well by "fried" what exactly do you mean?
    Can you hook you iPhone up to the computer?
    Is the phone itself damaged, or is it a result of unlocking and jailbreaking?
    A Thanks is always nice =]

    MY IPHONE CANNOT BE SWITCHED ON. IT IS DEAD.
    I DID NOT ACTIVATE IT THROUGH AT &T BUT HAD GOT IT UNLOCKED.

    now keeping the above in mind, what do you guys suggest??

    I think it's safe to say "Damn I'm screwed" to yourself.

    If you are 100% sure it's dead, then just switch the SIM to AT&T and hope it work. I'd bet against the chances though, seeing as the SIM would be inactive.

    Take out your sim, and simply tell them it won't turn on because of a faulty charger. If it can't turn on, it can't be proven that it's unlocked. They shouldn't deny you the right for a replacement, but I'm not sure.

    Yeah, I agree... that's the best choice you have at this point.
