    Default Clarification about Hypercard/stealthsim/turbosim and WARRANTY

    I just used hypercard for an iphone I gave my girlfriend. Works perfectly and it's nice that it doesn't require modifying the baseband or anything. Does anybody have a definitive answer to whether Apple will honor a warranty on an iphone that has not been activated through ATT? Can they do that legally?

    If I restore the phone to new with itunes, there will be no indication at all that the phone has been tampered with (jailbroken). The only giveaway is that it's not activated through ATT and I wonder if that is grounds for denying a hardware repair?

    Anybody with knowlegde and/or experience with this? There are no issues with the phone, but I'm thinking of selling my iphonesimfree unlocked phone and getting a new 1.1.2 to use with hypercard so that if something goes wrong I can use the warranty. Makes me feel better to know that I can walk into the applestore and get it fixed if need be.

    Thanks

    From what i've read, if you haven't signed up to AT&T (US) or whoever (UK), you get no warranty from them. Period.

    Dunno how that would stand up for a DOA, but yeah.

    that's what I was afraid of. I do wonder how they can do that given that the hardware warranty does not stipulate activation as a pre-requisite for service, but it seems Apple can do what it wants these days and nobody can really stop them.

    hmm...
