I bought myself an Apple I-Phone 3GS about two weeks ago, the phone is in pristine condition, we did a software update and now it has the ''popular'' flashing Apple sign, i took it in to the I-Store in Port Elizabeth SA where they told me it is a vintage phone and they offer no back up on it? I understand it is not a new phone anymore, but i just paid R1000.00 for it and now it is useless, is there anyway that Apple might be able to assist? I do not have the financial back up to buy a I-phone 5, and I really love the Apple product (my first one now) I would really like to carry on using the products but if they don't offer any back up then it does not make sense to spend money on something I cannot use.
Is there anyway to assist in this matter? I do not mind paying, but they offer no assistance at all.
