    My iPhone just broke the lock button is stuck and doesn't work anymore. She said it will be replaced. But, can I replace it with the iPhone 5 if I pay the difference? If not, the iPhone is black, could I get my iPhone replaced with a white one? PLEASE HELP! :(

    Nope and nope. They only do replacements for the exact same model.

    The short answer is no, on both questions. They're completely different products and Apple/AT&T/Verizon will view it like you have a 2011 Honda Accord and want to replace it with a 2012 because the drivetrain is busted.

    Yeah, same car model, but totally different in it's own respect.

    No on either questions.
    This came up a hundred times.
    You can only get the same model, same storage and color.

    You will get a refurb of the same capacity and color

    Why do these threads keep coming up? You bought an iPhone 4 so you get a replacement iPhone 4. Same goes for every product you will buy in your lifetime.

    While I agree with you (and everyone else on this subject), there is one caveat. If you've got a 3GS 16 or 32 GB and you need it replaced, won't they replace it with a 8 GB? Or do they still have 16 and 32 GB 3GS laying around for warranty purposes? I honestly don't know.

    Most places still have some for replacements but if they don't they can order one and notify you when it arrives at the store.

    I had my original iPhone replaced not that long ago. They still have them available.
