Thread: Iphone 3.0 to genius bar??

  1. #1
    Default Iphone 3.0 to genius bar??
    So I upgraded to 3.0 under a developers account.... And of course now I have a problem with my phone (not related to 3.0) my phone randomly thinks headphones are plugged in. i've tried all the steps and idea to fix it, nothing has worked.

    Question is, If I try to go to the genius bar with iphone 3.0 on my phone are they going to give me a hard time? or deny me a new phone? I just want a new phone!

    Sometimes the iphone gets stuck in headphones mode but its a simple fix. Stick in your headphones and pull them back out over and over again until its not in headphones mode.

    i dont think you should get any problems from them seeing how it is activated through a official account and not jailbroken or anything try it and see what happends then come and post it on here

    ehhh. they might ask him for his developer's ID and account. in that case, he's screwed. if i were you (the original poster), I would restore to 2.2.1 and see if that fixed the problem. If so, then 3.0 is causing the problem. if not, then keep it restored and bring it to apple.

    They'll deny you. Won't even look at it. I just went back down to 2.2 and will try again.

    ^Good luck, most times if they deny you they also make a note in their system telling them what crap you've tried....if you come back in it will come up with your serial #.

    No, I had my vibrate switch even broke and they still bitched and didn't fix it because it had 3.0 beta on it.

    Since they seem like ******s I was actually planning on saving and getting a new iPhone when they come out.

    I don't understand this. The whole point of the developer slots is so that developers can get people they know to test their apps.
    Therefore there is nothing technically wrong with anyone running 3.0 on their iphone who has been activated by a developer as it was all done within Apples framework.

    I can understand them not supporting beta software, but fail to see how legally they can refuse to support hardware, when the user has done nothing wrong.

    They will use what ever excuse they can to deny warranty services

  15. #13
    They wouldn't get away with it the UK (or the rest of Europe?)
    If they have any reason to suspect the problem is software then they have no reason to replace it - it is a problem with Beta software, but if it is a hardware fault and nothing to do with the software then they would have to honour the warranty - is it not the same Stateside?

    Hehe, I took an old 3G I had in about 4 times before they finally got smart and blacklisted it. Almost had it swapped out a couple ties, too.

    No they won't...? Not sure if you've ever been in an Apple store before, but most of their employees are very lenient and are willing to help you out.

    Well I will just rock out this 3G until the new comes out and then get that. I never want to deal with the Genius Bar again.

    ^Unfortunate mate, but it seems like you got one of the few bad guys... Again, they're usually real good a majority of the time.

    I don't think the genius bar would want to deal with someone who wanted to get a new iphone because he had cosmetic scratches on it

    Listen, let's not turn this thread into that other thread. Just saying, I won't be going back there anytime soon.
