    Hello,

    in about a month, im taking a trip to visit spain, korea and germany. Im currently using an iphone 4 unlocked via gevey sim. my question is, if my phone fails in spain/korea/germany could i go to an authorized dealer and get it replaced or would i be SOL cause it was purchased in the states.

    i should mention that my warranty is active till March 2012 (applecare).

    In theory. However, their warranty ToS clearly states:

    I think it's unlikely they'll deny it for an AT&T iPhone. I think they'd only do that in certain circumstances such as not being able to replace a Verizon iPhone 4 or Verizon iPad (among other things) outside of the USA. Still, there is a possibility.

    From http://images.apple.com/legal/warranty/docs/iPhone_4_warranty.pdf

    This indicates that they WILL service it in countries where service is available (i.e. where there is an Apple store or repair facility).

    I can't copy and paste from that link as I'm on my iPad. If you look at the Important Restrictions section on there it also says they may restrict warranty service to the country where it was originally sold. Repair may well be possible but trying to replace a phone that is locked to a network in another country due being on contract may not be possible.
