    Hi. I've just inherited a SIM locked iPhone 4, which i have a problem with people not being able to hear me on the phone, i can hear them but they can't hear me very well

    Can i go to a Genius bar to swap this out or back to the carrier, as i am not the original owner you see, and if it's swapped out or fixed ( i dont care whatever ) will it be another simlocked iPhone 4?

    Thanks in advance ( i did a search, nothing similair to my query, apologies if there is )

    The iPhone warranty moves with he owner no matter who they are, I would go ahead and book a genius appointment and it it swapped out as it looks like you have a faulty iPhone.

    Okay, do you know or have any experience of whether it will be another sim locked Orange phone, or something different?

    Yes, the carrier gets moved across when the Genius activates the iPhone.

    As above but you can get it unlocked from Orange for £15.00 ;)
