    Default ????Returning Iphone to Apple Store Can I???
    I have an unlocked iphone which I do not have AT&T service. My screen have dead pixels and I was wondering can I return it without an AT&T contract? Im going to restore the phone back to its original state when I first bought it,locking it back and everything. Please let me know asap. thanks

    The fact that you already know an AT&T contract is required seems to indicate you're indulging in wishful thinking.

    I don't know if a contract is required thats why I'm asking! I don't know if they gonna ask me for my AT&T information or not. I was thinking I could take it in and they see its mest up and they warranty it.

    Ah, yes any Apple Store requires you to be activated with AT&T before they will look at your phone.

    dumb idea just ask them what you can do about dead pixels on the phone and that you would really like to get it fixed, theyll ask you well since you just bought it we can exchange it for a new one and wala

    This is what I did for a friend of mine. He pruchased one and we unlocked and jb 113 otb. His speaker stopped working so I just removed installer and any 3rd party apps from the springboard and poped in my sim and went to the store and they swaped it out for me with no questions asked.

    Of course I do have at&t so they did verify that. All you need is a friend with att.
