    I have a launch iPhone 3G (16GB), which has a few problems. First, the WiFi is acting weird. Occasionally, the WiFi option in settings will be greyed out, even though I have two sources. Second, I've developed hairline cracks on the bottom of the iPhone casing, which seem to be getting worse over time.

    My plan was to wait until the 1 year warranty was almost up, then take the iPhone in and (hopefully) exchange it for a new one.

    However, the release of the 3GS has confused me a little bit. If I take in my 16GB iPhone 3G, will they replace it with another 3G, or a 3GS? They obviously don't make the 3G in 16GB anymore, so they couldn't replace it with a lower capacity phone.

    Honestly, it doesn't matter much to me. I've already upgraded to the 3GS with my brother's eligibility. I was just curious.

    You will get a 3G. They have plenty of them as refurbished just in case people like you come in :)

    They have plenty 3g avalible they even have lots of fist gen iPhones for replacement. If that was the case every 3g owner would have taken it back to apple lol.

    Welcome to the world of Refurbished iPhones!

    Just like with the 1st generation iPhones, they get replaced with refurb 1st generation iPhones today.
