I requested a swap on Saturday night in store. Phone was in stock for swap. ATT system was down so could not activate. Left new phone there so i could use old phone until AT&t was back up. Going in to pick it up soon.

Question: What should i check before i leave the store with the phone? Any manufacturing week numbers i should totally avoid?

Honestly, unless there are large scratches or a cracked screen, I wouldn't worry about examining it.

Just check the device before you leave.

Couple things I've read about for the past few weeks:

1. Clicky screen - as in, you can "click" some of the edges and corners down, as if the glass isn't sitting perfectly in the frame.

2. Discoloration around the antenna, where the metal part meets the nonmetal parts.

3. Loose volume buttons, loose power button, loose mute switch. Also, loose Home button.

4. Obvious dents. Cracks or chipping on the chamfer edge.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Good luck!
