    I just noticed that my phone is slightly bent...i placed it face down on a flat surface to make sure, and it is slightly bent (not major or anything). Not sure when it happened. But I'm wondering, will Apple still replace this for me? It is a launch phone (i think). This was a replacement phone in the 2nd month (initial launch phone i had had a loose home button)

    Saw a replacement last night in store for a slight bend so it's very much dependant on your store/genius

    I don't see why they would replace it.

    Please let us know how you get on.

    I also believe it's dependant on the Store Geniuses view point.

    I think your store will replace. But still case to case basis.

    I didn't know they'd even replace it. I've been extremely careful with my IP6+, I guess its good to know that it can be replaced.

    Let me guess, they asked you to pay for a new handset?

    I brought one in that had a bad speaker, they didn't even test the speaker when they saw the bend..I got a new phone.

    good news! they replaced my phone without any questions! i was out in under 8 minutes.


    also used ibackupbot and noticed battery is at 3000mah capacity! so glad this had a good, new battery. the other one i had came with 2800mah i believe when i first got it.
