    I got a 4Gig iPhone 2G off eBay, jailbroke & unlocked it & it's been working great. It's a little scuffed up, but nothing major. It's been working great up until now. I cannot get it to connect to WiFi. The router is in my room so it's not as if the signal is too weak. I tried doing the 'Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings' but it still wouldn't connect. I'm guess the WiFi adapter broke somehow (possibly from use?, not sure how long the phone was used before i got it)?

    Assuming it is broken, i'm out an iPhone, right? If i went to the Apple Store (removing my SIM card of course) & told them about it, is there any chance they would give me a replacement? Or would they try to look up my AT&T account to be sure i have one? I tried searching here & Google, & couldn't find any other similar posts.

    ~Thanks in advance.

    Most probably, but restore and remove jailbreak firmware, or else the warranty won't cover(make sure the warranty is active, if not, add some more).

    I restored & jailbroke, but still no wifi (even without the jailbreak =\). I've been searching around & saw that they may ask for my AT&T number if i go to the Apple Store. At the moment i have an AT&T SIM in there however it's a Pay-As-You-Go (well, it's actually a Pre-Paid Plan) but would that be good enough to get a replacement? If they look up my account will they be able to see that it's Pre-Paid versus a 2 year contract & then not replace it?
