    Before i start let me just say im super OCD when it comes to my stuff.....

    Ok so I have noticed an annoying bit of dirt/dust underneath the glass panel on the back case near the iPhone logo.

    Im thinking of getting it replaced, i got it on friday so im well within the 30 day period to bring it back.
    My question is, when i get it replaced will it be replaced with a brand new unit or will it be a refurb?

    and also, will i have any problem getting it replaced? do Apple stores keep new stock in the back especially for replacements?

    im in the UK by the way.

    thanks!

    i've gotten two refurbed phones as replacement and they were 100% flawless.

    But OP I doubt they'll just give you one BNIB for dust specs under the back no less . The most you'd be able to get is a refurbed which, again, is just as good as new when dealing with apple.

    lol why "at this point prob a refurb"? The OP is within the 30 days return policy, so if apple doesnt want to exchange his phone for a new one, he could just simply return his phone and buy a brand new one. I'm on my 3rd iphone because of OCD :D, I'm determined the new phone I got today will be a keeper!

    OP as long as your within the 30 day return policy, then you have all the power with your phone. The second that policy's terminated is when you should worry whether apple, best buy, etc..will replace your phone for a brand new one if thats what you desire

    I didn't notice it was so new. You should be able to get them to help you out.

    got off the phone to apple store, the guy said they will replace it will a brand new unit as its within the 30 day return period.

    whether they have any in stock tonight is another issue altogether......but the guy said they have a decent amount in stock, so i can only hope.
