    Default iPhone Warranty??????????????????????????????
    Ok, so once the iPhone is unlocked, it loses its warranty right?

    What if the phone is revirginized... Would that bring back the warranty if ever there was a hardware issue?

    Please explain!

    Viriginizing your phone would make it look absolutely stock, and believable enough to get it switched out for a new phone...

    IF you're going to mess with your phone, you should not expect Apple to bail you out when you screw it up. So, if you want your warranty intact, activate it through itunes and sign up with AT+T
    To live, you have to lie

    Yes, we should expect Apple to fix their hardware problems. Unlocking the iPhone does not kill the hardware and Apple should be responsible. Instead of Apple just stepping up and fixing hardware problems, you have people doing stupid things to totally destroying their iPhone in order to get Apple to give them a new one. Apple would be much better off just fixing hardware problems!

    Forget all the crap ppl tell u. if you want warranty u need to revirginiz the phone and sign up with ATT, get it fix and cancel the service within 3days of signing up and you dont need to pay termination fee and maybe not even activation fee if im not mistaken. Apple will not do anything if you dont have an ATT account so thats why u need to sign up. There is only one flaw right now with that plan, if you do get ur phone replaced, most likely be with an OTB 1.1.2 so you cant unlock it. I guess once an unlock is made for OTB 1.1.2 i guess you would be good to go

    That is honestly not true. I know plenty of people that have the 1st gen iphone unlocked and jailbroken being used under tmo, and what they did is just restore the phone and put the AtT sim back in the phone and brought it back to apple and if they gave them a new one. It's there product they have to help you.

    Here is the issue. In order to get support from Apple over the phone you need to have an AT&T contract or valid line. Apple will quite honestly have no idea when you send your hardware for repair if you do a restore. The issue is getting that repair set up, and if you don't have an Apple Store near you(a lot of people do not) there is no way to get the repair on hardware set up with apple unless you have AT&T.

    There are hardware things that go wrong with the phone that have nothing to do with unlocking or jailbreaking the phone. If you push your case hard enough with Apple they will most likely do something for you...maybe.

    1. If your unlocked, your out of luck because they ask for a AT&T number.
    2. If you want warranty, don't hack your phone. Because you can restore or revirginize, but still you have a slight chance of someone at Apple, however slim, that they DO find something. Don't worry about it, they dont have the tools to do a low level NAND recovery, i don't think at least...
