    Question Killing an iPhone?

    My brother has had an iPhone 3g for a while now and he has always had problems connecting to the wifi router in the house - he has made several Genius appointments and they just send him back saying nothing wrong with the phone. I have just recently upgraded to an iPhone 3g and I have no such problems connecting to the wifi in the house which leads me to believe that the problem is with his hardware rather than the router (Belkin Pre-N). Is there anyway he can kill the phone so when he gets to the Genius bar they have no option but to replace it as the issue is starting to get really annoying?

    LOL. It depends on your definition of "Kill"

    I've never tried it, but possibly using software made for older iPhone (ie. ziphone or iliberty or somthing) or maybe unplugging the iPhone in the middle of a restore?

    I received a replacement at the Genius bar when the SIM tray mechanism 'ahem' failed. I had used a longer than usual pin to eject the SIM tray and pushed too hard, breaking the small release mechanism. The only way to get the SIM out was to use a pin at an angle and prise the tray out. This was obviously something that the Genius recognised as a mechanical failure and he replaced it.
