    Still under my 1 year warranty.
    Had my phone replaced by Geek Squad w/ refurbished one after I dropped it.
    Canceled Geek coverage and now my current iphone lock button is not working.
    Checked serial # and the Apple site still says its under the 1-yr warranty.

    Would I be able to go to the Apple Store and get my phone fixed/replaced?

    My brain says no but became curious after looking up the serial #.

    Thanks for the help

    Only one way to find out for sure. Go to an Apple store and explain the problem.

    What I would question is where Geek Squad got the "refurbished" phone and who it is registered to.

    Regardless to warranty status, Apple will service it.

    Correct, bad wording on my part.
    Apple will still service it even if its out of warranty but they might charge a fee.
    If its under warranty the service or replacement would be free of charge.

    If you go to an Apple Store (to fix/replace your phone) and they determine that you're still under warranty, you might consider getting the regular Apple Care protection plan ($69.99), which will give you an additional year of protection for hardware/software-related issues.
