Thread: My screen is broken... is Warranty possible?

  1. #1
    Default My screen is broken... is Warranty possible?
    My screen is broken -> meaning... the lower section (bottom row) is not responsive to touch. I figure if I could "virginize" it and bring it back to the apple store with my receipt I "may" be able to have them consider me for warranty.
    I am currently on version 1.1.4.

    Has this happened to anyone else? It is almost definitely a HARDWARE issue because I have already restored it.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Sorry, didn't read the post right. If you have a dead zone and you're covered by your warranty still, Apple will replace it free of charge =)

    PS. Are you unlocked, and when did you purchase the phone. Your warranty starts when you activate the phone. They'll ask for an AT&T number.

    Yes, I am unlocked and I purchased the phone last September.
    However, I have NEVER activated my phone and do not have an AT&T account.

    I've heard that I do need an AT&T account... so I am wondering if I should go get one and then cancel a day later after I take my phone back.

    Does life have to be so difficult?

    You don't need to be activated... you don't need an AT&T account

    check this thread

    and you don't need your receipt.. you can check your warranty information on the apple website... the link is also posted in the thread link in post #6
