    So I have stock restored, dfu restored, and everything else I can think of on 3 different computers and nothing works. as you can see in the picture the phone doesn't even know its own information and all itunes says is that there is no sim card when clearly there is. Now if I take this in to the apple store even though the hardware warranty has expired will they still replace it?

    I think they will, but it'll cost you. I haven't seen that problem before.

    well it looks to me like something is corrupt lower than the firmware hence the restore is doing nothing so all they could do is charge me for a new phone?

    No. Just a repair fee. It's usually about 1/2 of the whole price of the phone.
