I was just wondering if I send my iPhone for repair under warranty will Apple repair the same unit or replace it with new/refurbished one? I know that they used to replace them with refurbs in the past but not sure about now. Thank you.
They will determine what to do. You need to send it in first and then its left to the Apple tech to determine whether to replace or repair your phone.
This is my third iPhone and they replaced it everytime with a new/refurb one. You cannot make out whether its a new or a refurbished phone. Some claim if they send you a phone in a white box then its a refurbished. Not sure how far this claim is right.
Anyone try to take one back to an AT&T store (assuming you bought it there) or to the Apple store (again, if you bought it there)?
With my Sprint-purchased Treo, I went to the Sprint store and walked out with a refurb the one or two times I had a problem over the years. Of course, Palm and Sprint always insisted that Sprint was to handle support for the Treo; I don't know if Apple has the same arrangement with AT&T or not.
