    My recent jailbroken iPhone 4 started not answering or accepting calls, so I restored to factory settings and backed up from a backup of the jailbroken phone. If I take it to the apple store so they can check it, will there be evidence of a jailbreak? I have the apple care plan. Thanks.

    You should restore and setup as new to see if the problem persists.
    If its good then you dont need to have it replaced and its most likelly a software bug with your JB backup.

    But will there be evidence of jail break even if I restored it to factory settings and it's on newest firmware? I might be mistaken, but I thought if you upgrade, it undoes your jailbreka. I'm not 100% sure tho.

    Do as Applejuiced says and you will be fine he's 100% as usuall. Restore as new like he said. Always restore as new to remove the jailbreak 100%

    No, the Geniuses won't be able to tell, I had a Jailbroken phone that I unjailbroke, there was am issue that was existing before and after the jailbreak, I took it in, they checked it the issue and then replaced it. It doesn't seem as if they know.

    Technically the only way to remove every single trace of the jailbreak is to restore as new but I think as long as you don't have Cydia or anything installed that relates to a jailbreak, you'll be fine.

    the reason for restoring as new is it also helps to make sure the problem is the phone. Not something you might have installed via jailbreak causing the problems. Also just like every where else some Apple employee's are very through others could give a crap.

    Although I agree, I find that with this certain apps still know if you're jailbroken. For example, FlipBoard would give me a message saying that it may not work on JailBroken devices or so. Same goes for Skype.
