    That is so true. But if it was u. Would u care. Even if it was a apple Employee Working doing
    Personally, not really. But that's just me, after having several iPhone's replaced over the years with refurbished ones, I never once thought of it as anything less than a brand new device.

    Did they give you a brand new in the Retail box or the Refurbished one
    Refurbished unit. Handled it like a warranty exchange saying it has "activation issues" because I didn't want the guy to get in trouble. The way he reacted to the phone being dropped was non-chalant. "Oh, it's fine. The glass didn't break. It's gorilla glass." I kindly showed him the new scuffs that were created on the bezel due to the fall and the small bottom strip of glass on the back had a alight crack. It was an accident on his part and I didn't get mad and I could easily roll with a phone like that. But the reason I preferred an exchange was because I didn't want to risk running into a hardware problem due to the fall and had to have gone back and explain the situation which would have sounded like BS.

    agreed!!! in my house we only use Samsung flat screens. I've bought them new and refurbished. I haven't seen any difference what-so-ever. Refurbished item can be better in the long run as they have already been fixed and what not.

    Noooo I missed my case delivery today while I was at college! They came a day early and even though it's a no signature requires package and I live in a safe neighborhood the mail guy didn't leave it. Now I have to go another day without protection. I'll make sure to be home tomorrow.

    I had a Best Buy employee drop my phone one time like 6 years ago, and scratch the hell out of it when the case flew off. I pitched a fit like all get out about it, and made them replace it. He had snatched it out of my hands to play with it because he hadn't "seen one in the wild yet", and I was livid. I am ridiculously overprotective anyway, but that just made me 10x worse.
    That's hectic. I never let my nieces play with my phone. I'm way to anal about it.

    Well yeah we don't want our pricy phones to get damaged and definitely don't want randoms snooping in our phone but I think that's to much.. It's a store rep.. It would be very unprofessional of them to go through customers phone without their concent

    Yeah, except when my phone goes to a unique person, she is allowed to do what ever the hell she wants to do.

    Apple is usually good about that. He probably just didn't want to get in trouble which is why he said 'oh its fine'. After getting a 3 year old MacBook Pro replaced with a brand new one, I'm more than wiling to sing the praises of their customer service.

    I'm the same too! I recently flew to Portugal and the boarding card/tickets are now in Passbook. There was no way I was handing my phone over to the airline /security staff to scan the ticket. Thankfully they just held up the scanner to everyone who had it on a phone to let you scan it yourself!! Phew!

    Woa someone sliding you your phone back? No way! If see flames and kill the guy lol. That would get me upset. That's why I don't let anyone use my phone. Only it's in a case or so. Never naked.
