Hi, My iPhone 3g just died(error 23) and Apple genius said that they could sell me a iphone 3g replacement for $200 or a 2-year contract iphone 4 for $200 because it was more than a year after the warranty expired on my iphone 3g. The genius gave the option of a $650 unlocked 4. (my contract expired in 2008. i have unlimited plan.) And what did the genius mean by "more than a year off the warranty". Does apple sometimes replace phones if the warranty is expired for less than a year? I wanted to get the 2-year contract upgrade with the iphone 4 but that means I will not be eligible for iphone 5 for 1-2 years. I know the 5 is coming out soon but using my company issued blackberry is a lesson in patience. I also do not want to make personal calls on the company blackberry curve. What would you do? I know the iphone 5/4gs is around the corner. Maybe waiting is the best option. Helppppp!
