    Ok so I traded my over 1 yr old bold for a 1 month old iPhone 3gs 16gb straight accross..
    But theres a problem with it witch the guy thought was just a loose connection to the digitizer he liked BB's better so just wanted to trade it..

    But the problem is after say 10 minutes of playin with the phone the screen stops responding so what I have to do to get it back working is to do a "hard shut down" or whatever to shut it off & leave it for a good hour or 2 before I can then turn it back on & it'll work fine for awhile then do the same thing...

    Ive googled untill my eyes bled & cant find anyone else with this problem..Anyone have a clue..? I have already tore the glass/digitizer off & replaced it with a brand new one & it does the exact same thing so its not the digitizer..I have also restored the 3.1.2 OS back onto the phone but same thing still goes unresponsive...

    Please Im a iphone n00b anyone have any clue's..I think I may have got jipped even tho I was "done" with the Bold

    The 3gs should have still be under warranty...to late now since you took it apart. Maybe you can still take it to the apple store to be checked :\

    u can go to apple.com & see if ur phone is still under warranty by putting in the serial # But if you make a appt with a "genius" in a apple store & ur phone is defective most of the time they will give u a "new" one right there..

    I don't see why they would refuse you... If the product is from apple. But then again I'm not on rogers... But straight up trade fom a bold to a 3gs would have raised a red flag for me... Anyway good luck.
