    Is apple still obligated to replace broken iphone 4s's even if the contract has been broken? They have to right?

    I've been using a verizon 4s, on t-mobile (via gevey sim), and the power button just completely stopped working. Its jailbroken and I used Activator to put the phone to sleep by triple pressing the home button.

    If I restore this (to remove jailbreak), and put the original sim tray back in, Apple should replace it without a problem right? I would like a phone with a working power button. I was just going to say I was using it like an iPod touch if they ask why its not activated with Verizon.

    Yes, they will still replace it.
    A carrier block has nothing to do with apple's applecare service.

    Just wanted to say that I told the genuis that I didn't currently have service on the iphone, so he replaced my iphone without copying the MEID over to the new iphone, so now the replacement iPhone I have has a Clean ESN with verizon which is a nice surprise.
