    I just watched my bumper-ed iPhone 4 go from 5 bars to 1 bar and back to 5 bars while sitting on my desk untouched. This has been consistent since I've owned the phone. I'm thinking I'd like to get it replaced. I know the time window for returns is 2 weeks but I want to continue to be an iPhone 4 user...just with one that works. My thoughts are to wait a while and then contact Apple Support for a replacement but I don't want to get outside of whatever window allows me to do that. So, is the 14-day thing just for returns/refunds? The phone is under warranty for a year, right?

    Yes you have one year. So if you just so happen to have the same issue in a month or so from now, Apple will replace the phone assuming they consider it an issue.

    I thought it was 30 days for return? Can someone confirm? If it is 2 weeks im running out of time.....

    1) Apple store policy is a 14-Day return window. There is NO 30 days return policy at Apple. Maybe their resellers but not apple direct.

    2) Yes, exchange is 1 year from date of purchase if there is a warranty issue which can be confirmed by a store.

    I just saw this on the apple page....not sure if this is only for online orders?
