    I broke my iPhone a couple days ago so I using an unlocked T-Mobilt G1. So I go to the Apple store to get my phone replaced. So one of the Genius Bar guys told me about the screen replacement program which is pretty much now they can replace your screen without replacing your phone. It cost $199. I agree to it and they took my phone and said we have to check for water damage first. The guy checked it right in front of me the said it was ok and come back in about 20 mins. So 20 mins passed and I get my iphone and its closing time at the mall so I go striaght to the exit instead of walk around the mall. As I'm leaving the mall I got a call and as all of you know when your iPhone is sleep and you receive an incoming call you have to slide to answer. So I tried and I couldn't answer the call. So I call the person back and I can't hear them. So I turn around to take the phone back and the mall doors are locked bcause of closing time. I think to myself no big deall ill just come back tomorrow morning. Plus it would give me one more day to use my G1. So I go back the next day and tell them what happened and they took alook at my iPhone then brought it back and said it had water damange. I told them that noticed the problem when leaving the mall the day before but the mall had closed. The guy was like maybe you brought it in the restroom with while you were showering! I'm like huh! I told you I noticed the problem right after the screen got fixed! Then he said maybe you got a drink and some water got in the phone? I told him the mall was closed how could I have gotten a drink? Pretty much he told me there was nothing he could do and I would have to pay another $199 to replace the phone. I was in shock and I didn't have the money! So I go home and calltech support and tell them what happened they thought I was lying because they didn't know that Apple had a iPhone srceen replacement program. So they call the store on threeway trying to prove me wrong and the store guy told him that Apple did in fact have a screen replacement program. So I'm furious now cause they thought I was lying. So pretty much they set up an appointment at the Apple store to replace my iPhone plus the renewed my applecare for another 2 years and their gonna give me an $50 itunes give card. So today was an awsome day!

    Hi! I'm actually Old Kevin. I just want to share a hint with you as far as posting.

    Try to separate long posts into several paragraphs for easier reading. This will keep folks' interest longer if you do this.

    I'm glad it worked out for you!

Surerly he couldn't have been that mean, lol I know it's only a phone but I feel sorry for you and let's face it you got owned also can I just ask is this one of those long fake FML's?
