    The guy at the genius bar told me 3-4 days but I'm looking for real world times. Those of you that had repairs, when did you take your phone in and when did you get it back? I'm nervous I won't have my phone back by Friday (I really need it for the weekend). I took it in yesterday.

    don't know about iPhones, but for my Macs, they've always arrived and left the repair depot the same day. Apple usually gets them back overnight. I've found the limiting factor is getting them to Apple.

    my iphone repair took 4 days, dropped it off at the Genius bar on Sunday, Fed-ex delivered it Thursday. A signature is required for the repaired/new phone, but you can sign the fed-ex door tag if you are not there and they will leave it next day.

    my genius told me about the 3 day turnaround. i dropped my phone off on a wednesday and didn't get it back until tuesday. i think they didn't ship it out right away from the apple store because the repair center didn't get it until monday.
