    not having service any where? I have the iPhone 3G in white and my sister has the old iPhone and she gets three bars at my house and I get NO SERVICE. My battery also lasts less than half the day and I don't have 3G or Wi Fi on and I don't use it for more than two hours.

    Nobody can say with certainty what a Genius will do in an Apple store, but I'd guess that presented with those facts, you're likely to get a replacement.

    Do you get any EDGE coverage (turn of 3G to find out)? If yes, then you are fine.

    Otherwise, yes, they will replace it.

    Bitch and whine works in this case. So go into an Apple store and they will likely exchange the phone for you.

    Well I bought the 3G for a reason, so I need 3G, but both don't work. ANd sometimes when I switch back I have to restart my phone a couple of times so I can get service.

    Then take it in and get it replaced, because it sounds like the hardware is borked.

    What's the use then? You pay for 3G but can't use it? Doesn't make sense.

    That's like paying for HD channels and only having an old 1980s TV. You're paying for something you get no use of.

    But he doesn't indicate if he is even in a 3G coverage area, so it may have just been a tower problem.

    That is a HUGE problem, if they don't replace it, go crazy on them until they do.

    Yea, but I was assuming that he had 3G... thus him buying the 3G. I could be wrong though.

    I mean, we didn't have 3G for about 1 1/2 months after it came out and I felt jipped by still having to pay for 3G usage. Of course, I just wanted the new one badly and didn't want to wait those few weeks with my old 2G one.

    I got my iPhone 3G replaced!

    It works very well and I'm 100% happy.

    The reason I don't use 3G is because it isn't available in my area but I sometimes go to areas with 3G.
