So i bought my iphone 3gs 32gb on launch day outright from the vodafone store.
Today i noticed theres a distinct rattle from inside my phone whenever i place it on a table or shake it next to my ear.
So far i havent really noticed any performance hits but i have got 3 delayed sms messages (no idea if its related)

Is this grounds for replacement? and if so, how do i go about doing it, 3rd party? or will vodafone deal with this

Most likely it will be a warranty repair - or if it can't be repaired a replacement, at discretion of the repair centre.

Contact a Vodafone Store to have this fixed.

bring the phone in to your nearest store to and ask them to send it away.

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR

If you're in Auckland, and have some time to spare, pop over to MFR yourself, in Mt Wellington, and get then to have a look at it. They'll give you an answer within the hour usually.

 You can't.

Which is why I suggested MFR in the first place.


They're who Vodafone have to deal with.

I should know, I had my iPhone replaced about 5 times.

If you turn up there yourself, they are VERY good.

If you send it in via Vodafone, I have found them to be a little slow.. But then i'm very impatient.
Slow to be was about 2 weeks.

Compared to about 1hr if you walk in the from street, it is a big difference.
