    1. Your have a iPhone 5, not a iPhone 5s as it is not out yet or confirmed it will be called that....

    2. Damaged to the device does not warrant a replacement.. You can have it repaired by Apple. But it will cost you.
    "One of the iPhone 5s" was indicating that the company had multiple phones of the iPhone 5 variety. Adding the 's' at the end of words is a common occurrence in the English language.

    Was it really necessary to be condescending to one of your posters?

    The OP clearly explained that already at the beginning of the thread.

    So only people who live in cities where there are apple stores get service on their devices? Lots of cities don't have apple stores.
    No, but there is something about being there in person and looking sad at the Apple Store folks that gets things done and that rarely happens over the phone. Just human nature. Nothing to get upset about.

    Isn't it covered by your business? Have them send you a replacement phone.
    My sister has a work provided phone. If she breaks it, she pays for it, not the company otherwise they'd be up to their eyeballs in debt because every employee would be throwing their phones off bridges as soon as the newest phone is released.

    Yeah, I saw that after I posted.

    I get annoyed with that one particular staff member because I rarely see anything other than that style of post.

    Realistically, the OP was clear to anyone that read the original post.

    Trust me. It'll be $229 + tax to replace the device unless you have AppleCare+, in which case it'll be $49. They don't offer screen replacement service on the iPhone 5 at this point. You'll need to make sure your device is backed up to iCloud or iTunes before you get the device swapped, because they cannot transfer your information at the store. You'll need to be on Wi-Fi to restore from an iCloud backup. They won't cover any third party accessories, such as screen protectors. Make an appointment online before visiting so that you don't have to worry about availability. Make sure you know your Apple ID and password, if you need to reset it, visit iforgot.apple.com.

    He was stating that he has more than one iPhone 5. I'm pretty sure that he knows theres no iPhone 5s yet.

    What if he told them he doesn't want the screen replaced, just the battery fixed?

    Will not, maybe. But they most definitely can.
