I'm a Distributor and i sell iPhone's in quantity. In some situations i need to send phones in for repair. Such ad DOA units or units that fail Restores or initial functional inspection. Phones that have hardware issues and are and should be covered under the manufactures warranty. Now recently i i have been receiving lots of denials now keep in mind i don't open these phones or modify them in any way but i have been receiving bogus reasons as to why they will not repair or replace phones and its not adding up. Here are a few images of reasons they say they will not touch them. These images are provided straight form apple the only thing i have done is blurred out repair numbers. Does anything look wrong here on the boards ? Has any one else been affected ? I Have at least 50 Cases like this i always save the images and emails. I have started to notice a pattern. Here are 5 different cases. The Foreign substance could be could be unburned flux. The LCI - Internally has not been triggered so its not liquid damage. There is NO corrosion anywhere nor have any of them appear to be worked on or opened to my knowledge. 4 of these images show absolutely nothing out of the ordinary than what you would find in a brand new phone. I'm not a genius in circuitry but i don't buy what apple is saying is truly a valid reason not to cover the devices.
