Thread: trying to replace my iphone

    Default trying to replace my iphone
    Hi all
    i have an iphone with air bubbles in the screen. I am trying to get it replaced. I tried it last time at an apple store, but the genius wants me to activate the phone on the spot, since i dont have an iphone plan i couldn't activate, so first try was unsuccessful.
    So my real question is, is it possible for me to go in with someone's sim, who actually has the iphone plan, to the apple store. then get my phone replaced.

    I do not think so as the sim owner has his phone registered with serial number and it would not match.
    If anything was usefull a thanks would be great!
