I bet you apple would look after you if you explained the whole story. ive gotten a second free replacement in the past if its for the right reason, plus ive even had a iPhone replaced for a new (reconditioned of course) iPhone past warranty! Apple is leagues ahead of the rest when it comes to customer service..

I feel like sometimes the service one gets (this isn't the case just for apple) all depends on the person you are talking to. some are willing to go the extra mile

Plus it can come down to kindness too (as in how nice you are when talking about a problem).. 

 

not enough kindness in this world 🙂

@JonathanCo Weird how were getting different answers. The guy on the phone told me it was possible just a bit trickier. I do have BetsBuy as a back up cause I do not want to pay full price for the phone, I want it on my Premium+ tab. I'll find out for sure come Friday, I'll be sure to ask them its still possible to refund and then resell it to me on contract. I think I bought mine off the webpage, is that any different from the app?

Hello @gcooldude

Everyone is getting different answers even speaking to managers or reps. So truly who knows what the truth is.

The app store and online is the same thing.

In my understanding, there is no difference. The App and the Apple website share the same inventory and it's different of the Apple Store inventory. But maybe the manager can twist the system for someone.

 

 

You guys, @gcooldude and @Meowmix, gave me a little hope now! You're maybe right 🙂

 

We will keep in touch this Friday!

 

You know, the Apple's procedures are sometimes annoying. I had a similar problem (inventory issue) with the replacement of my apple watch band, 2 months ago. There was a problem with my sport band and I was available to have a new band to replace it (it's always new when you need to change your band for hygiene issue. There is no "refurbished" band). So, there was no band in stock in store.. in fact, no band from the "replacement inventory", but there was like 100 new sport bands like mine in Store ready to sell. The employee told me it was impossible to take one of them, because it's not the same inventory. Consequently, I needed to wait for Apple to send my new sport band to the Apple Store..
