Anyone have any luck with returning a defective iPhone 5 to Genius Bar for a different model?

Retuen it if it's within 30 days and buy the model you want.

Can't do that if they have none in stock. Thought going through the Genius Bar may work since they do have replacement phones in stock.

Nope. I tried doing this because I wanted to switch my 16gb (with a defect under the screen) with a 32gb. They will only replace it with the exact same model. They told me I would have to wait until they had 32's in stock to return and repurchase.
