    Hi guys -

    Like everyone else, I'm eagerly anticipating the upcoming iPhone 4/HD. In preparation, I am considering having my less then 1-year old 3G-S warrantyed through AppleCare. The reason being like others, I've developed a hairline crack in the housing. I want to make sure that I get the best bang for my buck when I put it up on eBay!

    Apple will honor the defect and replace mine w/ a refurb - my question now becomes: Will this affect my early upgrade eligibility date? Right now, I'm good for upgrading (according to AT&T) on 6/21/2010.

    What are your thoughts?

    Thanks!!

    -Chris

    You'll not get a new 4g phone, for your defective 3Gs. They have plenty of refurbs available to repair/replace your 3GS

    No, warranty exchanges dont have anything to do with your upgrade eligibility.
