    And because of what ?

    I got a replacement for the rattling sound below power button.

    It could take up to 2 months to get a 32white tho.

    I got a weekend launch iPhone 5 that had a defective earpiece. I got a replacement overnight from Apple and all is well.

    On a side note, there must have been other issues with the faulty iPhone because when I would switch to vibrate in a quiet room it would REALLY BUZZ. My new iPhone is perfect.

    I got a replacement because my iPhone 5 Black came scratched. Taken 1 week for replacement. Also I noticed the colours on the replacement one are a lot less yellow!

    2 months is ridiculous :( I live in Canton Ohio and was surprised they had a replacement ready to go.

    Wifi problem replacement

    Replaced due to problems with wifi. Genius checked and really couldn't find anything wrong but decided to replace because that was his only option. Gave me the new phone out of a plain box that had has the same serial/IMEI numbers. Bought from ATT "device only" and new phone was unlocked as well. Genius said because defective phone was without contract the new phone would be unlocked. Did not have to go through the unlocking process with ATT on the second go round.

    The new phone has no wifi problems so far.

    Got 2 replacements, no issues with it being out of stock.

    3rd one is a charm though! Knock on wood

    Original one had a screen that clicked in the corner.. Walked into the Apple Store and had it excanged but the replacement had a nick in the bezel.. Asked the genius to get me another one.. So 3rd one, however this one isint perfect either, the front facing camera is a little off center and there's a discoloration of the anodized aluminum on the bezel

    It's just a phone.. It works fine and I'm done exchanging them

    Bought 4 iPhone 5s. 3 were perfect and only one had to be replaced. Whenever I would call someone there would be a lot of static and the volume was very low and it also had a broken volume button. The replacement has no issues.
