    My iphone 4 is having a hardware issue, if I get a replacement from apple in store, will they just replace the phone, or the whole box? Should I bring my original box and cables?

    Thanks

    They replace just the phone. It will be in a little black box

    How do you tell if its a refurb or a new one? Is the serial number different like in the past?

    Replacement iPhones start with 5, whether new or refurb, so no you can't really tell.

    If you get a replacement phone within the initial 30 days and then decide to return the phone before the 30 days is up for a full refund, can you?

    Yeah this is exactly what I did, though I went through a total of 5 different replacement iPhones. This was all at the Apple store also. Didn't have any trouble returning the replacement phone.

    You posted this in a thread a few days ago and I told you then it was not true.

    I have had mine replaced twice now, once from the store out of the "black box" and once shipped to me from apple care.

    First replacement started with an 8
    Second started with a 7S

    I don't know where you are getting this from but it is completely untrue info you are spreading.

    I've gotten 4 replacements this week since they were had major defect issues. They were brand new but they came in that black box. All of them were manufactured in week 26. However, it makes me wonder if these replacements are made especially to be replacements or if its just random as to which gets placed in the black box or the new retail box.

    Sorry, I stand corrected. I assume these were iPhone 4? If so, they're not starting with 5 for the time being since they're so new but will eventually.
