Iphone Faulty What Can I Do?

10 replies
Found 3rd May 2010
Basically my Iphone 3gs is in perfect condition but the top left hand switch which turns the volume on or off seems ok but the iphone keeps togging the switch to being on and off. Now does not seem a major fault until the phone is in your pants and the vibrate keeps going off and you think you have a email or text then you look and its the damn iphone switching between sound off an on.

So I am fed up of it doing that and want to change it and the genius store.

So what would I need to do there Iphone is unlocked and jailbroke. How would I get it back to factory settings so I can take it to Apple for them to change it so my warranty would not be void.

Also will I need to bring everything like the box etc?

What will I get a refurb or a brand new one?

Any help will be appreicated.

My case was turning the volume down continuously until I removed it & fitted it correctly

Quick question guys, if your iphone was bought from abroad do Genius still accept appointments? or do they only tend to uk iphones?
