    Hey guys,

    I got my iphone 5 from XDA marketplace(I got tired of going to the store everyday and come back empty. I wanted to get the phone at full retail price and that couldn't be done by pre-order online)and yeah, the phone doesn't have a receipt but I got it sealed in a box. It came out of the box with a ding on an edge. My question is can I add Applecare to it and get a different device or swap for a different device without a receipt? Please let me know. Thanks!

    To the thread title, so yes, you can swap for a different one at the Apple Store.

    Do I have to wait until they get new shipment though or do they have replacement phones with them all the time?

    It's a ding bro, just put a case on it. Chances are you will get a refurb with more than just a ding. Don't take your chances.

    Dang. That made me thinking! I do have the switcheasy tones on it to cover up and the phone has no problems but everyone here seems to think having the phone naked is the best way to go! I wanna have the option of doing that! :(

    if it bothers you that much put a bumper on it. Mine has a self-caused ding and I'm not OCD so it's hardly noticeable and it's in an out of reach area

    Btw if you get a case.. don't get the Griffin Reveal.. the back aluminum of my phone was scuffed while the case was on. I returned the case and got a different one with rubber in-siding.
