IPhone Warranty


Hey guys, i Have a iPhone 4s 16gb which i purchased in 1st week june 2012. There was some issue with it and the service center gave me a replacement today. I asked him what is the remaining warranty, he told the original remaining on your device. So I checked it online it is showing: One more year remaining from todays date! It's actually good, but I want to sure. Is it the same for you guys? I bought the phone from India itself.
Also, I wanted to buy applecare and wanted to be sure I do buy it in time as a week is left only for ORIGINAL device warranty to expire. Also, the telephone support is showing till end of August 2013 so has the full warranty been reinstated?

Thanks!

Re: IPhone Warranty

I think this policy is nice, although I have not heard of this before, hope all companies start following it.

Re: IPhone Warranty

hey guys, i think I have a a display issue in this iPhone! There are two small bright white spots on the top of the screen which are noticeable in white background or light backgrounds especially while browsing. I have added a video check it out. its on the left portion of the screen as per the video. What do you think should I take to the service center again?? :/ I got it on Wednesday, its a distance from my home, got a screen guard and everything! and now this :/ what a mess.

Edit: Can't uplaod the video somehow. Check this image for now:

Re: IPhone Warranty

Yes the screen does show white discolorification at two spots.
The service center is the only option.

Is it worth the hassle? I don't mind it as long as it never spreads. but a defective device anything ca be defective so i think its better to be sure and get it done with right? What say?

Re: IPhone Warranty

^^ The device of any company specialy such as a apple product that is costly needs to be availed of by official warranty only..
I think the problem here is small but it might develop into a bigger problem, so it is worth the hassle.. !!

Re: IPhone Warranty

I went to the Apple care today @ManISinJpr
They showed me many more iphones all with similar issues :/ some less some a bit more..wtf is wrong with apple.. what a pity..the only company i thought makes "perfect" devices in terms of BUILD quality...its a pity to see that go away..or maybe since these replacements are REFURBished..i think they suffer this issue.

Re: IPhone Warranty

Replacements are refurbished !! that is the cause, but what about other customers and the store staff suggestion.
I mean what did they say, will then get a trouble free piece for you?

Re: IPhone Warranty

Generally, if your original warranty has run out, they give you 90 days additional warranty after the replacement.

Getting an entire year extra is weird and lucky I guess.

I've never seen the white spot issue, but yeah, it wouldn't be worth the hassle.

Re: IPhone Warranty

Those White spots are on the edges right. If yes, then looks like backlight bleeding which is common with the IPS technology. If it is backlight bleeding it won't spread and if doesn't bother you, you can decide to stick with this piece.
