    Default Am I screwed???
    I just brought a used iphone 8gb from this guy, and on the back of the iphone it say AppleCare Service. After a day use, the touchscreen on the bottom is dead or not responding. Can I bring it back to apple for a exchange or I'm screwed? Please help. Thanks

    i'm thinking touch screen going bad. hardware issue

    does anybody know apple's repair policy? Since I purchase the iphone from some1 can, I bring it back to apple and have them repair the touchscreen? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

    Don't know why people keep forgetting. If you're in the States, and you don't have an AT&T wireless contract attached to your iPhone, Apple will not even look at it.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    I have a different issue with my IPhone... my Ear piece stopped working and i tried about everything i found in the net and nothing worked so i decided to take to the apple store hopping they would send it for repair... but instead they were trying to give me a new one.. i tried to insist on just repairing my old one but the guys said they don't send them for repair they just exchange them with new one... some of are wondering why i don't want a new one well because they can't be activated anyway when i decided to go ahead and take the new one, the clerk asked for my Phone number so i gave it to him, thinking it was for information purposes but he was actually checking if i was an ATT client which i wasn't of course and he nicely said i can't bring up your info...Obviously, so i replied hmmmmmm weired and i said i did get an error in Itune when i tried to restore the phone and kept saying it can't contact the store, could that be the problem and the guy yah most likely so i said what is next, he goes you will have to go back to itune and reactivate your phone and then come back to pick the new unit so i guess i will have to find someone with an ATT account and try to activate it under their account hopefully it'll work without extending their contract..... tomorrow I'll find out....
    fingers crossed.

    Keep us posted with your experience please..... also let us know if the new phone they give has the new Bootloader ...

    Hello all,
    I got a new IPhone replacement but it is a week 48 damn...
    now i will have to wait like everyone else...well at least i have a replacement and I'm not an ATT client... oh yah if you are wondering how i pulled it off well i used the girlfriend thing and how it is her Iphone and i told them she has goPhone from ATT and she never activated the phone through Itune because it work when you put the goPhone ATT card in.... and the genius bought it and exchanged it... he was cool about it....

    good luck to you all.
