    Default [Yay] I got my new iPhone!!
    I used m3thodandr3d's method and I got a new one! No one suspected a thing. Took 30min - 1hr though. But overall I'm happy. New iPhone that will be scratch free for a long while.

    (here's my story. Names,what i said, and a few other things aren't specifically mentioned infear i will get found out.)

    What happened and what I did:
    Got my mom to take me to the mall. Her and my little brother went to go eat while i went to the apple store. I walked in and a person approached me. I told the apple person that my iPhone was broken. So they took me to their computer and turned on my phone. They said " Oh looks like you just need to plug it in to iTunes." I said " Yeah, we tried that but it keeps getting an error." Him plugged it in and tried restoring it. Him asked me what happened and a told him a pho but believable story. So he tried it like 3 times. Tried putting it into DFU mode, and finally he gave up. He set me up for an appointment that was supposed to happened in 5 min. So the genius took it, messed with it, took it to the back came back 4 min later saying " there's nothing we can do, we'll just have to get you a new one" I sounded sad and said "hmph ok" and BAMM new iphone.

    Default Yup
    For most people there iphone issues can be fixed but if you have a hardware problem or a software problem its most likely they'll replace it since they have so many.
    Cheers mate!

    So because you scratched the back of your iPhone you wanted a new one?

    Sounds really selfish to me!

    No its using what apple gave you. They gave you a 90 warranty if there was something wrong you can return it. If they didnt want that then they should have let you have it...

    I told you that method was guaranteed . I think its so funny how the Apple stores have hundreds of refurbished phones if yours breaks, but no new phones if you want to purchase one.

    I know! that so funny. A guy came into day wanting to buy an 8Gb and they said they only had 16. He kept getting close to the guy and asking and saying "dont you have a secret stash?" It was hilarious! Then like 3-5 people where getting new refurb ones. All 8Gb. I should have asked if you could buy a refurb one.... Hmm lol thanks so much

    No problem, I'm actually on a hunt for another 8GB needed by tomorrow. I'm probably gonna try the AT&T stores since most of their sales are from refurbished iPhones. I mean c'mon if you walked into a store and could get the same phone for $150 less, wouldn't you?

    I'd agree that yes you have a warranty and have every right to use it, but to use it because you have scratches on the back and want a new one is still selfish.
