    so basically your wasting apples time and money to replace a unit with no problem whatsoever except a very minor cosmetic flaw that is almost impossible to notice
    and now people with real problems will have a harder time getting theirs replaced because they have to wait for more to be made/refurbed

    If you feel that way why don't you offer to trade your phone for his since you don't think it's such a big deal. The guy paid top money for this and he deserves to have something he's satisfied with. I'm sure if you received what he got you would want to change it. No one in their right mind would live with their flawed iphone.

    I'd be p*ssed if my phone had any issues, as well... if I'm paying for something it better darn well be perfect.

    Side note: what is "welp?"

    Hey topic starter, do you think they will fix it and send it back or send you back a completely new iPhone.

    If its in a box on its own (not the full apple packaging) then its a service unit. This means it could be new or refurbished.

    It will be a refurb, no doubt. My original 1G iPhone went dead one week after I got it (launch day 2007) and they sent me a refurb saying it was new. Didn't matter because I couldn't tell the difference anyway, and it lasted me a very long time.
