    my 3g has a firmware problem (error 28) and apple has offered to replace it for $200 (no contract). since they are discontinuing support for everything 3g and older, will they still have a 3g to replace it with? reconditioned unit maybe? or will i get lucky and get a newer 3gs or 4g?
    thanks

    They will replace it with whatever you currently have, unless you get a manager willing to do otherwise.

    You might get lucky and get a 3GS but no more than that I'm sure.

    Also, if they don't have your exact model in stock, they'll order one. That's what they did with my old 3G.

    Why the hell would they give you a 4G for an old 3G?

    This rarely happens if ever. Even the original iPhone still gets replaced with an original iPhone, they still have those in stock for out of warranty replacements.

    I think Apple have enough fraud attempts to worry about.

    I can only imagine the things people would try to get a free upgrade.

    This post doesn't make sense.

    Why buy a 3g for 200 when you could buy a 4g for 200 with a 2 year contract?

    Everyone will have problem with 3g and 3gs and pay $200 to replace for 4g. 4g will be 200/300 with contract. No contract will be $600/700

    4g 64gb = $199
    4g 80gb = $299

    No, you will get a refurbished 3G or in this case $200

    I don't think you know what that word means. It's completely ILLOGICAL because there would be MILLIONS of people who would want to trade in their 3G/S for the 4th gen
