I just sent my Iphone 4 in to be shipped today to Apple. It has currently been shipped already. I had a reboot problem on my Iphone 4, where all it did was reboot itself every 5 minutes or so. So do you think they will send me a new Iphone 4? And about how long will it take them to send it back to me?
I am not sure about shipping times but Apple ships Refurbs in most cases. If they do not have any refurbs, you might get a new one but I do not believe you can request a new iPhone. This is stated in their terms for service. They will look like new. Back to shipping, If I had to quess, it will be very quick. Apple focuses on the customer experience. In the future, if you live close to an Apple store, they will swap the phone in-store.
