Will Apple replace iPhone 3G if..

There is a small crack above the usb port to the side?...

The only problem i have is there are lot of marks on the back that cant be cleaned off. The warranty is valid until June 2010. Thanks for help

The best thing is to go into an apple store and explain the problem they usually just replace it there and then.

why not ASK THEM

Unless the damage was there from the start, this is not really a warranty issue unless you can prove the damage is not caused by you? As you say there are scatches etc on the back will only point more to damage by misuse.
The probably cause is having the usb cable connected and you moving dropping the device.
Waranty covers device defects like actual failures not accidental damage, unless you have an insurance policy to cover this?

I did try mate but couldnt get through...

Just rang again and it looks like i am eligable for a replacement..

Because the crack is coming from the USB port and not on its own, they should replace it as long as i take i to the store.

OP i see u support wolves, so u live in midlands right? if so head to the bullring apple store, they will deffo sort u out with a replacement. 8-)


make a appointment via the apple website first though.

Cheers buddy, i have just arranged one for Wednesday afternoon :thumbsup:

I have a slight problem though.. my iPhone was officially unlocked by a member on here. If they replace it will they replace it with one locked to O2 (like it came).. or with an unlocked one?

Or even if i ask nicely could they replace it with one locked to Orange :-D hmmm

Is it a 3GS? Bare in mind if they do replace it, it may well be replaced by the late model 3GS, which cannot be unlocked/jailbroken completely (you have to jailbreak everytime you reboot!)

It is 3G.

I cant request another Unlock by O2 if they refuse to give me an unlocked one though :thinking:

I don't really want to software unlock it as last time i did i had problems with reception

unfortunately its "like for like" replacement so would probably have to be a o2 locked one, which u would then have to get unlocked via o2 by explaining what has happened.

Hmmm i think O2 would charge me £15 for an unlock! ah well we will see on Wednesday what the outcome is

New question:

How much do refurbished iPhone 3G 8GB sell on here? :whistling:

I would say is £250-£270? maybe? as it will be scratch-free etc. plus it will have warranty till June 2010
