Will Apple still service my first-gen iPhone, despite having 3G version?

    I had a problem a while back with my first-gen iPhone that involved random shut downs and call failures. The genius told me that if it ever happens again, to come back and they would swap it out for me, he even wrote the authorization on the back of his business card.

    The problem started again right when the new iPhone's came out, and I didn't want to be caught dead in such a mad house during the time. But then one thing lead to another and I switched to the new 3G version.

    Now that the hype has died down a little, I still want to get my iPhone service because it had those problems. But now that I have the 3G iPhone, the current iPhone isn't activated anymore on AT&T... will Apple still let me get a replacement?


    Confusing I know, my apologies in advance.

    Edit: Thanks iWantiPhone, I have the 16GB iPhone that came out in January

    as long as you are with at&t and are still within the one year term on your applecare, you will definitely be helped for free. if you have had your phone for over a year, then they will help you, but you must pay for any repairs.
