    When you get an iPhone replaced under the 1 year warranty, does the year start over?

    I got my iPhone replaced in June, so I'm wondering if my warranty ended on July 11th (when I bought my original 3G) or if it continues until next June.

    When you get your replacement iPhone, the current one year warranty will continue, or it will be extended for 90 days, which ever is longer.

    Not if it's replaced. If it is repaired then that fault is covered for 12 months

    The easiest way to explain it:
    90 days from the date of replacement or the end of your original warranty, whichever is longer.

    That's not 100% accurate. It says I don't have any warranty, but my phone was replaced around July 19th, so I still have two months left.
    I don't know if it works for replacement phones.

    Thanks for this link! However, I think it only works for the original phone you bought and not any replacements.

    It works for my brother's MacBook, his iPhone 3G, my Original iPhone that has been swapped 3 times and my iPod touch 2G, So it works, I don't know why its not working for you.
