I'm from London and hope that someone might be able to help me.

My friend got me a iPhone 1.1.2 from U.S.A and the vibrate button just stop working. i have receipts and box. Can i take it to Apple Store for Warranty Repair?

The iPhone is jailbroken, so i don't no what to tell them if they ask how you using this in UK. Any ideas of what i can do?

i also just went Apple website put my serial number. I have a feeling I'm screwed. This is what it said:

Please any advice is appreciated.

you need AT&T. or whomever the legit carrier is over there. Do not take a jailbroken phone in an Apple store. Restore and rejailbrake is your only viable option that I can see.

yes it will. You do not want Apple to see a jailbroken phone. You can always restore to a virgin phone, get it fixed or replaced, then rejailbreak and reunlock.... Wait till folks start getting up around here... More options maybe

All you have to do is take a receipt and a non-jailbroken phone in and say the button is jacked up.
