I got my iPhone 5c in the mail today.  I activated it and now the sleep/off button is not working.  Can i return it and exchange it for another one or pay extra for the 5s.

MJbearden, I want to make sure you are able to use the device that you are looking to upgrade to. You do have a 14 day worry free guarantee on the device for issues like this. I would recommend on taking the phone and all of the paper work that you received in the mail to a Corporate Store Location: http://bit.ly/3SdsA They should be able to do the replacement for you. Please keep us posted.

This is not what we want to hear MJbearden! We want your phone to perform as intended! Is this a brand you phone that you upgraded to, or a warranty replacement? We can explore options for you.

Hello MJbearden!

Thanks for the information! As of today, how long have you had the device?

It sounds like your still under warranty so I would either get a replacement from VZW or contact Apple.

I would hope VZW would give you a new one rather than a replacement since you just received it.

If VZW doesn't want to place nice, Apple usually will.  Go there and have it fixed or replaced...
