Well if you seen my recent posts I did get an iPhone 3G from a friend for free (she upgraded to the 3GS). It had a crack on the vibrate/silent switch so I took it to Apple and they swapped it out within 5 minutes with a "new" refurbished iPhone, I couldn't be any happier BUT there is one problem. When I went in the Warranty Status for the "old" serial number expired on July, 10. When I walked out with a refurbished one, it says "Our records indicate this product has not been activated." Please note that I do not have an AT&T Contract. I'm actually on prepaid GoPhone. I even called the Apple Store & 1-800 # and they said as long as it had a warranty they would exchange it and it did NOT have to be under contract. A guy even made a good point saying "Sir, we sell iPhone's now a days without a contract/no commitment". So when I got the Refurbished unit they did not activate it or anything, they handed it to me and I left the store. My question is: How do I get my July, 10 Warranty back so I can put Apple Care on it? Any help would be appreciated. Also, sorry for the long post, I just wanted to be clear on everything lol!
