    A friend of mine works at an Apple Store. He said some employees will give you grief about replacing a phone with bad hardware (pixels, broken connector pins, etc.). He said if you ask to speak to a supervisor, they will usually go ahead and replace it. He said the most important thing to do is to remain polite. If you piss them off, they will be less likely to help you, which is true with any store in this situation.

    i got my display scratched by my gf's cat today and had the same idea, google found me this thread.
    i asked some friends already, one had the idea to try to short the dock pins with a paper clip or something.

    any good ideas?

    this whole frikin thread it insane.. and as for apple making swaps.. when i was on the phone making my order for a new phone my parents thought itd be funny if they talked about me jailbreaking it while i was on the phone with apple.. but 5 days later i had a 3GS on my doorstep. and at my apple store by my house.. they saw my jailbroken 3g one time and 5 min later two guys walked up to me and said i had to leave. i said im buying a case, and a few seconds later i was escorted out of the store..

    Apple refuses to replace my iPhone with a bad battery because their "diagnostic program" claims it's not broken. After speaking to the "genius guy" he agreed with me that my battery had serious issues, but would not replace it because the software reported everything working. Apple is so full of it. So I say go for it, get a new phone from them. Would passing a strong magnet over the back of the phone ruin it?? Most likely I think. Make sure it's a strong magnet. Try it. If they refuse replacement then you're SOL though. Or you can try overclocking the processor and see if it fries itself. Aren't there some programs to do this???
