    No, Apple will replace the exact model that you have.

    See above...

    As per OP, Apple will most likely do repair your device. However, at this point, the first iPhone is 5 years old and classifies officially as a vintage product, which means no parts will be available and/or Apple will refuse service for such outdated product.

    I have heard rumors of people walking out with better iPhones, but I would take those with a hint of salt.

    Worst comes to happen, Apple will just deny service and you will need a new device.

    Not in this case. Not with an OG iPhone with a cracked screen.


    I bet you are. :rolleyes: Who wouldn't?

    Let's be real here. Would a retail store stock parts or replacement units for a product that's five years old and hasn't received software support for over two years? Nope. They'll most likely give you a refurbished 3G(s) for $200 with the latest firmware pre-installed.

    Why is anyone still using the original iPhone? There's no way you're still locked in a contract, buy a new one!
