Long story short, here's what happened to my iPhone 7: http://forums.hardwarezone.com.sg/e...ked-new-replacement-iphone-7-lab-5516486.html and https://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comm...eplacement_phone_received_from_alab/?sort=new I bought a new iPhone SE yesterday as I thought my iPhone 7 would become a paper brick forever. However a miracle happened. Someone from Tim Cook's office called me this morning. This happened because I sent a long email with all my documents and proof of purchase to Tim Cook, Phil Schiller and Craig Federighi. She told me that she will be taking my case from now on. Guess what. A few hours later and my iPhone 7's activation lock was removed. Now I have 3 options: 1) Keep iPhone 7 2) Keep iPhone SE 3) Keep both, iPhone SE as backup phone. What should I do?
