    Just got my new iPhone today and the box was white. I've only seen the black boxes is this new? Plus my iPhone says Charging... Please Wait and it looks like its frozen when I try to restart it nothing happens. Is this normal?

    Thanks,
    Zach

    Hmm...my refurb came in a black box, just like the original one did. Kinda hard to take this thread seriously without any sort of photos.

    easiest way, when u goto make a post, scroll down to manage attachment and go from there.

    or u can upload to a website like photobucket.com and then post the [img] tags into your post.

    Does the White Box say "Apple Certified" on the top? My refurb came in a White box.

    K hopefully I put up the pics correctly. And yeah it does say apple certified and on the second picture the really small writing says
    "Apple Certified Refurbished" then below it says it in french.

    So I called apple they said I can return it. I already unlocked it, what should I do :S I don't like the fact that it was broken at one point

    *edit* I also paid full price for this wtf

    KK I understand that its refurbished but what shud I do? I already unlocked and modded it but apple says they'll return (obviously I didn't tell them I unlock it and modded it.) I dont like the fact that it was once broken. Give me your advice!

    Just restore to a 1.0.2 from itunes, even though its still unlocked...I doubt apple will check or care, they are only looking for the "incorrect sim" error that is causing all the trouble. You should be fine. But even if they do check, they won't keep the phone. So...you have nothing to lose.

    Take it back man they jacked your money giving you a refurbished phone. Its there fault. Like the guy said above restore it back to 1.0.2... there are ways to do it in this forum. Also, they probably wont check the software (thought they might.. Im not sure, but I doubt they will). Bottom line, they messed up, go get you a brand new phone.

    /\ then quit your complaining if when we offer you solutions you keep complaining. maybe u should have made your it was new when u bought it. but i bet all we'll get is more complaining and excuses. you should be happy apple is offering an exchange, its your own fault for buying a refurb.

    Would you like some cheese with that whine?
    Yeah it'll take you some time but you knew youd have issues with that when you bought it long distance

    At least you'll have a working iPhone when you get it back. And by then even 1.1.1 will probably be cracked.

    I'll trade you my iBrick for your long term free replacement any day,
