    I just sent my iPhone to apple because of what i think is a faulty WiFi card...it seems to disconnect from my wireless network at home after about a minute of connection even though all my macs seem fine. Has anyone else here had their phone sent in for repair? If so, has Apple attempted to fix it or do they just replace your phone with a refurbished one?

    I've had my iPhone serviced twice and both times it a different unit came back. They both looked pristine, so I couldn't visually tell if they were refurb or not.

    exactly.....I've sent 3 back.....just sent mine back today because the touch screen had a strip at the top that didn't register my touch.....I hope I get a new one that is pristine and WORKS for more than a couple weeks

    Wow, that's why I had to send mine back too -- non-responsive strips across the screen. It's a small world. hehe :)

    well it looks like they aren't even bothering attempting to fix these things. I'd figure they wouldn't... everything is so tightly integrated in there that i guess its not worth their time.
