    The box they they took it out of was some gray plastic type box. When they said they'd replace it I was like it will be In new condition right, and he said its a brand new phone. But it didnt come out of the iPhone box.

    Also since this is a new phone is it still guaranteed for a year?


    Oh and it has the yellow screen tint and
    My old one was a crisp blue :/ oh well

    I don't know how to tell if it's new or a refurb; I would imagine it's a refurb, though. At any rate, no, you don't get a new warranty. I believe you have either the remainder of your original warranty or 90 days, whichever is longer. Your warranty doesn't start over at a year every time they need to replace your phone.

    Exactly. You don't get a new 1 year warranty. Your previous warranty carries over to the replacement.

    She's right you got a refurb but what difference does it make.

    You get a full year from the original date of purchase or 90 days whichever is greater like said above.

    Your eyes will adjust to the warmer tint and I'm sure you get the warranty status after the same info has been repeated a few times to you !
