The Guardian recently posted an article about a problem someone in the UK has experienced with a iPhone repair store. While we know the person is in the UK, this problem happens in the US too. We want to shed light on it because it’s a serious issue that you need to be aware of.
The story is that someone sent in their damaged iPhone to a repair company they found online. What the person received in return was an iPhone 4 – someone else’s phone. When the customer called and demanded the right phone, the repair place says that they won’t until she returns the one they sent.
After some consultation with legal professionals, the customer decided not to send the iPhone 4 back until the store sends her phone back. The customer was able to get her money back for the repair from PayPal, but she continues to fight to try to get her phone back.
