    Quick question guys,

    Firstly, I purchased an iPhone from a friend for $100 dollars. I dont have a data plan yet but ive noticed that the screen has some light bleed through in one area and it also has an air bubble in the actual glass. Since Im not the original owner of this phone (no have a registered it.. its jb'd to work on AT&T) can I take it into an apple store and try to get a refund? I realize this is WELL after the fact, but I was wanted to post this and see if anyone knew of the options I might have.

    Ive read alot about people taking there iphones in and just exchanging it for new ones. Any advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks guys,
    Arisian

    why would i want a refund on a phone that i paid $100 for? Even broken its going for more than that on ebay and its still 100% functional.

    Umm, I think he/she was trying to tell you it would not be possible. Seems like a valid contribution to me.

    You will definitely not get a refund. If it's a 3G, you *might* get them to exchange it for a fresh one.

    If that doesn't work, why not just sell it for $400-$500 (assuming it's a 3G) and buy another?

    its not a 3g. Thanks for the input though. My point is that the flaw is orginal to the phone even though Im not the original owner.
