    Hello,

    I know I'm well behind on the whole bending iPhone things, but I've just noticed my iPhone is badly bent, and the screen is coming away at the top of the casing.

    What is the Genius Bar policy with things like this? Is a replacement possible, or will they tell me where to go?

    Thanks
    James

    Some people have had success getting a replacement for a bent phone, others haven't. Best bet would be to make an appointment at the genius bar and see what happens.

    Give em another excuse like your screen goes blank or phone turns off. Takes me ten minutes to overpower those nerds. I've exchanged phones many times for the hell of it.

    Sure I can read the post but your title is misleading.

    People like you are why the prices keep going up. I have no respect for your immoral tactics. Hmm, and Apple is the one who keeps getting the evil eye....:rolleyes:

    Please. Apple is a BILLION dollar company. People scamming them is not why they raise prices. As much as I love my Apple products, the fact is they're greedy. Look at the watch: $200 for a band? Criminal.

    You state that it is bent, but fail to explain WHY, which is kinda the point, and will be the WHOLE point if you go to the "genius" bar.

    I thought this was going to be a story about the Genius Bar bending someone's iphone. That would've been a first around here. But alas, no. Another, "My iPhone bent somehow, what are my options?" thread.

    Disappointed.

    That kind of depends on if you read "bent" as a verb or a noun. It's not a great title either way, but one way it's fairly inaccurate and misleading, while another way it's just not grammatically well put but still fitting in the sense of keywords.

    ----------

    The title doesn't make for everything, otherwise we'd only be posting in titles and not posts.

    They replace it. Take it in. Tell them you just noticed it and they give you a new one.

    They've gone up in most European countries but that's due to the dollar getting stronger than the euro.

    Comparing US prices to US prices, seems like the pricing is the same as it was for previous phones, like iPhone 5s and iPhone 5 when they were the latest model, for example.

    Actually... the iPhone 3G and 3GS (AT&T Exclusives) started at $599 off contract. When the iPhone 4 came out, they bumped it to $650.

    Hello I have a bent iPhone 6 plus, very little but noticeable on a flat table, for me, they wouldn't replace it, but since it's not to bad the phone is considered as still under warranty, but if it was severe, and ie the phone didn't turn on the phone has the damaged bent iPhone logic board, then that's not covered

    Why are you all so rude? What's wrong with the title? Don't shoot the guy just because he didn't use punctuation, jeez.
