    I got a stolen iphone3g from a friend (i swear) for $50 but it wont charge anymore. I searched for fixes but nothing worked. I searched up the serial number for the iphone on apple and theres a applecare protection for 3years on this iphone , i only think its for warranty. I want to take it to apple for a replacement cause after reading several posts on other forums other people took their phone to apple and got it replaced without any problems, but they werent stolen i think. If I take the phone to apple will they take it from me or not repair it.
    Thanks Guys

    Heres what you should do:

    Give back the iPhone to the original owner. I dont give a crud if you werent the one who stole it. Its bad, and the worst part is, is that you knew it was stolen when you bought it, so shame on you. Its scums like you and your friend that make me sick to my stomach

    They can't know whether it was stolen or not unless it was reported. Your best bet would be taking it to apple ASAP and telling them that it somehow got broken.

    Hahahaha your funny, if it was stolen, I wouldnt do it. And trying to make a joke of this situation and avoiding what were saying isn't cool either.

    It depends. If I had $50, I really would get it, then return it to it's owner, then again, I'm probably not that nice of a guy, it depends on my mood when I see it/get it.
    Why didn't your friend keep it btw? And what's the Serial Number and the Phone Number of the phone?

    Im not going to try and tell you one way or another on this since frankly.. its your business if you want a stolen phone or not.
    You could take it to Apple.. Never hurts.. I doubt they can see if its Stolen or not unless the owner reported that it was stolen then they wont help you..(I think..)

    even though you didnt steal it, you can go to jail for that
