Hi Allen, a friend of mine recently stumbled upon this issue. He was one of the unfortunate ones with their warranty expired. If you take your phone into a nearby Apple store, one of the Genius' would be more than happy to take a look at your phone. If they are unable to resolve your issue, since your warranty hasn't expired and isn't due until April, they will replace your iPhone with a NEW phone. No refurbished phones would be given as a replacement. I hope my answer has helped you greatly. Best wishes, Rani.
