    What do I do? Sometimes it works around after 10 tries but it doesn't have that satisfying click. If I take it to apple would they replace it or do they only do software problems? I haven't dropped it and my phone doesn't even have a scratch. I also have an invisishield on it, do I have to buy another one if I were able to trade it in? That would suck. What are my options?

    Just take the invisible shield off before you hand your phone over, you can get a free replacement but you need to mail them your old one.

    Yeah, I know it's a hardware problem, but I was under the impression that they only replaced phones with software problems, since if you drop your phone and break the display they won't swap it out. My appointment is in an hour. I'll be there in a bit!

    If theres an invisible shield stand at my local mall would I be able to take it there?

    Apple has great customer service. Unless their are signs of abuse, they will give you another. They don't exchange phones for software issues because a restore will fix that or new software update.

    And yes you can go to a invisible shield stand. You will just have to pay for reinstall of the new one.

    You only get a free replacement if something went wrong with the shield, so make sure you say their is a nick or something in it as that should not happen and warrants a replacement. That's at least with my experience a couple years ago, may have changed since then.

    You can get a replacement just because it peeled. They can say one it peeled, they took it all the way off.

    Good point, that should work as well. Just wanted to make sure he didn't just go in and say he got a new phone and needs a new one.
