About two weeks ago I dropped my iPhone 5 and the screen and the band separated . I went to my local apple store and they looked at and advised me it would be $229 for a replacement. I told the genius I would just wait and hope it help up until a new iPhone was released. Later on the day I got an email about my visit and it gave me the option to chat online with a genius about it. So I did, I explained what happened and the online Genius decided they would replace it for free! I couldn't be happier of course. I mailed it and they mailed me the new one back. Fast forward to a two weeks later I realized that when I would record a video, vertical lines would appear on the playback if the rear camera was used. I made an appointment today at my local Apple Store they checked it out and gave me a replacement. When the genius told me it would be replaced he went and he grabbed a white box one and asked me what carrier I use. I told him AT&T so he typed in to his iPad finished everything up and I was on my way with my new iPhone. I was wondering though, Could all white box replacements be the same and they assign a carrier lock when it is being activated?
