i wanted to thank everyone that tried to help me....

i called apple for a replacement phone and they first denied me... told me to go to apple store...

so i made an appointment at the genius bar yesterday...

i brought it in, talked to a guy and gave him a story... so long story short, i got my iphone replaced with a new one!

i tried to battle this repair needed /1002/1012 thing, but i got lucky and was given a replacement. So good luck to you guys with the battle to fix the phone....

i'm still always a lurker!
