    I went to the :apple: store today to exchange for my 3rd 3G because the 2nd one had cracks all over the phone. For those who have successfully exchanged phones, did you return everything in the box? When I returned my first phone, I left my charger at home on purpose to see if I can get an extra one. But the person who helped me just took the new charger from the new box. But today, the girl who helped me didn't care that the charger was missing and let me keep the new one :D! So now I have 2 chargers!!!

    I had exchanged it 2 times but always received a refurbished/repaired one alone, no box, nothing extra.

    That's dishonest, I hope you drop your iPhone and it breaks.

    do they take a retail box and give you the new iphone? i've only seen them exchange with refurbished iphones.

    Exchange pshaaaaa I returned!

    I returned my 3G Iphone after two days of agony. 4 hour restores that only restore half of the info, the speaker not working, and all apps crashing. When you are paying for a phone and service it should work. These aren't bugs, this is like a beta version that hasnt been tested.

    I switched back to my original IPhone and life is great!!!

    OP, I had my 3G iPhone White replaced with a NIB, and I had my box, receipt and accessories, so straight across trade less the headset, which I had forgotten b/c I tossed them in my Headset Graveyard at the house. :p

    when i first talked to the associate about exchanging the phone, they said i couldn't exchange it because the genius said he couldn't see any visible cracks on the phone. they also said i couldn't exchange because its past 14 days.

    i just freakin laughed. first, i told the genius to look carefully....he found cracks all around the phone. 2nd, i told them i never said when the phone was purchased so how can they assume its past 14 days (it was exactly 14 days since the last exchange). they just stood there looking a bit embarrassed. maybe thats the reason they let me keep the extra charger.
