genius appointment with an altered iphone. best strategy?
ok, my wife's iphone is dead. I believe that the problem is that we used it with an itrip auto, and it's voltage was too much and fried the battery. Of course, the phone is unlocked and has tons of 3rd party apps on it. In my attempts to fix it, it has become completely inoperable.
I have a genius appointment tomorrow, and i'm wondering if i should go in and level with them about all the hacking, pleading that they take mercy on me, or just act ignorant and say that i got it as a gift and i just opened it and it was dead, thus unable to create a contract with at&t. will they call bs either way? if i go in and they can't get it to do anything either, will they just send me home with a new one without checking on my contract, or are they going to want to send it in for service, thus discovering my lack of contract?
