    Question Already asked for iPhone warranty, tell us your experience?

    A couple of questions for those who already asked for the iPhone Warranty:

    - If I have a hardware problem (the camera in my case) and I go to an Apple Store to ask for the warranty, will they change my iPhone for a new one right away, or I will have to wait several days until they repair mine?

    - I need the receipt to ask for the warranty?

    - If they change it for a new one, I will have to get there with the iPhone box and all the accessories?

    If you are unlocked i think they will do nothing.. They know if you haven't activated with AT&T

    Yes I heard that, but in this case the iPhone hasn't been unlocked and it's activated with AT&T.

    Here was my experience.

    I took my iPhone out of my pocket a few weeks ago to find the glass shattered. I had no idea how it happened, but I figured I must have bumped into something and broken it.

    I went to the apple store expecting this to be an expensive and time consuming repair.

    Before I went though, I restored the phone, removing any trace of the fact that I had jailbroken it and installed 3rd party apps.

    The apple guy looked at the phone and offered to swap it for me free of charge. He just took out a new (probably refurbed) swapped the sim card and gave it to me on the spot. I was amazed.

    they sent mine out instead of switching it on the spot, didnt need reciept or anything but the phone (i had it all on me anyway) they will either mail it to you direct (US adress only) or you can opt to pick it up. i recieved a new unit and it comes in a different package that is just the phone same top image and everything but its only an inch or so high. when you get it back it will be in the factory activated stage (you start witht he spring board) in my case everything worked except wifi never figured out why but i whent in stole the files for youtube and the lockdownd then did a restore and everything was peachy.

    swappped mine out. you dont need receipt since your info is tied to the phone. im guessing if they still have iphone available theyll just swap it out. but if you have a 4 gig youll probably have to wait to get it repaired. i doubt they would give you an 8gb.

    I have a problem with the headphones. I went to an Apple Centre here in Italy but they told me that, even if it's in warranty, they don't do services for the iPhone until it arrives in Italy too...
    Luckily a friend of mine is returning to the USA next week...
    Do they substitute headphones istantly at an Apple Store?
