    Has anyone been able to return an iPhone 4 to an Apple store even though they purchased it online? I know last year they didn't allow you to return stuff purchased online directly to the store, but has the policy changed? This is such a simple question, but I haven't been able to get a consistent answer over the phone and the nearest store is about 1 hour away.

    I'm curious about this as well, i'm thinking of exchanging mine. I pre ordered with AT&T and had it delivered to me the day of release. I have a feeling i take it to Apple to be swapped but i'm not positive.

    You can swap it at the apple store. It doesn't matter where you got it. You have a 1 year apple warranty.

    Yes it can be swapped at the apple store regardless where purchased.

    I'd like to know though if I can return it for a full refund though.

    Did you change your original post? I could have sworn it said you bought it online through AT&T Premier. If that's the case, then I'd say I seriously doubt it.

    Not really a fair comparison...i have bought from American eagle online and returned in store. I don't think apple allows this but I don't see why not. Other than making it more difficult for some I guess.

    Edit...I could see where you would make that comparison now.

    Keep us posted. It's time for me to return for FULL REFUND. This phone's a turkey.

    I also bought AT&T online. I'm calling them tomorrow.

    Don't get me wrong. The phone looks amazing. Reminds me of when the nokia 8890 came out. But functionally it's just okay.

    I dunno, my previous phone was an LG chocolate, so I suppose any current smart phone would be amazing imo.

    But I don't talk on the phone much, and I have no intention of ever carrying my phone without a case anyways, it's far to precious to me lol.
