    Default How I Got out of my Contract...

    I got extremely lucky... I didn't open my iPhone until yesterday... previously I went to the ATT store and tried to cancel - they said they needed proof that I returned the iPhone. I opened the phone and I happened to get extremely lucky...



    The iPhone is on the left and my iPod touch is on the right


    The screen is fucked up.... So I went to Apple store late in the day (when I knew they would be out of iPhones) and I got a receipt showing that I returned it and they gave me a little iPhone 3G card that I could use the next morning to reclaim the new phone. I got my new phone, then went to ATT and showed them the receipt showing the return.


    i hope you guys are as lucky as I was!!

    he returned the iphone 3g with the yellow screen, Apple gave him a receipt to get a new one in the morning, and after he got his replacement 3G (that they prpob jsut updated), he used the receipt from Apple to take to at&t and use it as proof of a return/receipt (i am guessing it's a return receipt they issue you from Apple)

    You do, of course, realize that you're gonna need to reactivate when you pick up your new phone, don't you?


    ...and there's no point of going late in the day as the stock that they use to replace broken phones is not the same as the ones they sell to new customers. When you need your phone replaced, they have bare units (no charger, no manual, no sim card) that they use, usually refurbished.

    All you did was return your phone and get your first contract canceled. When you go back, you need to sign another contract.

    What he's saying is, after he received his replacement -meaning the replacement phone he received has been activated by Apple/AT&T with a "new" contract- he then took the return receipt for his "yellow screen" 3G phone to ATT and had then cancel out the contract now associated with his replacement phone.

    AT&T pretty much dropped the ball on this one because they failed to compare the IMEI or Serial number on the return receipt with the one on his contract. His contract would have been updated to reflect the replacement phone's IMEI and serial number upon activation. However, the receipt would have showed his old 3G IMEI. Carelessness......

    I exchanged my iphone 3g before because there were cracks in the inner paint. THey took a new one out of a box and gave it to me. Didnt even ask for my receipt, just took my phone and gave me a new one.

    He's talking about that yellowish tint you sometimes see on faulty LCD panels.

    Oh, I see, he went to AT&T after he picked up his new phone.
