If you buy a phone and have issues with it, do you take it back to Best Buy or to a Verizon Wireless store? I've only bought at Verizon Wireless stores. I'd hate to have a problem and then be bounced back and forth between Verizon and Best Buy and Apple.

Guacho says:

within 30 days at Best Buy too, I have exchanged two iphones at bestbuy and it was a great experience, after 30 days you go to an apple store

JBC says:

There are many of us who do not like how they handled the white iphone release and did not want to give us cash for our "gift cards". I'll be getting mine from the Verizon store.
No love for BB.

pax says:

If for any reason you need to return your iPhone back to Best Buy, they will charge you a 10% of the retail price for restocking fee..

sting7k says:

AT&T does the same thing. Apple recently just stopped this practice.

Sohail says:

Wrong .. Best Buy has stopped charging restocking fee.. Now you can return the phone at full price.

Guacho says:

Agree.... Did not pay a fee

Ashton says:

Same here. Although I think policy was to charge a fee. I have had good luck with restocking fees. Verizon, AT&T, and BB have not charged them to me even though I fully expected to be charged.

Mica says:

Plus Best Buy has the buy back program so when the iPhone 5 comes out you can get a gift card for 50% of the retail price and put it towards that.

jim1969 says:

Does that 50% go towards the full unsubsidized price or subsidized price? Assuming you buy the iphone 4 with a 2 year contract, how can you switch phones during the course of the contract without ETFs or having to pay full retail? I'm new to this whole phone deal.

S.meezy#CB says:

For devices that are mobile phones, the original purchase price means the Best Buy retail price prior to any specific carrier based rebates, offers, discounts or promotions. In addition, for devices that are mobile phones, this Plan may only be utilized for mobile phones that are under a carrier contract.

Mica says:

Full price. Here's what I'm doing...I'm buying the iPhone 4 at full retail and then in August when I'm eligible for the upgrade I'm using the buy back to get a gift card for $375 and I'll basically get the iPhone 5 for free. I mean, if they come out with one lol

Mica says:

Even if you get the phone at the subsidized price You get a gift card based on the retail price.

For you guys who will be buying from Best Buy and utilizing the buy back program, there is a special deal for you. Stay tuned

Jack says:

Stay tuned how long??? Need to know before 3AM to know if it will be with it to wait or do the pre-order...

robnaj says:

shaolinfinest says:
