    Default Christopher Walken Touched My iPhone (Canada)

    And now it has a DEAD ZONE!

    Last night I tried to email a pic and discovered the bottom strip was dead to my touch. I couldn't call up the phone, email, web or iPod.

    Any other Canadians go through this? I live in Toronto and I'm about to go to the Apple store downtown to see if they can take it in (extremely doubtful on that one).
    Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?

    I wouldn't bother taking it in. They won't do anything for you, as they have no training/experience with the phone. Drive back to Buffalo with your receipt (once you've relocked the phone of course).

    Like _imthatguy_ already said: forget about it. Put your iPhone to a "virgin" state again, doing a full recovery. You may want to activate it to check out if the bottom strip works again, if not, do a full recover again. Go to a US Apple Shop and try to get a full refund. Why refund? Because HOW do you know that the bottom strip doesn't work if you never activated it? How did you activate it if you're from Canada? I think you get my point.

    Thanks.

    I did the full reinstall/reinstate from iTunes 7.4.2 this morning and no luck. I will be taking back to Buffalo soon. Question: will they know I did a s/w hack even after a full restore? My sister in law lives in Vermont so I'm not entirely high and dry.

    It's just a friggin' pain when Apple leaves people high and dry like this. It's pure bad customer service when one of their staff flat out says "no" to your face and offer no solution to your $700 problem.

    Yeah yeah, I know: "Why did you get it then?"

    It was a gift. Which makes it all that much more frustrating.

    Thanks for your suggestions, regardless. Nice to see there are "good" Apple people.

    forget about relock, just get a prepaid at& t card slide it in and show them or if you have roaming from the settings choose the att network then show them that it is not working.

    My friend in Chicago just emailed me:

    He told the Apple clerk his sob story, they checked the serial number matched the box and swiftly replaced the phone with a new one. Easy as that. I don't even think they opened the box to test it.

    Makes me think that a certain lot of serial numbers were defective and they're quietly exchanging these without question.

    I was pooping bricks there a while. If they had tried to "fix" it with 1.1.1 they would have bricked it.

    Glad to hear that everything worked out, and that you got a pre-1.1.1 phone to play with again.
