Ah fuck you, Mexican Armed Forces

Illustration for article titled Ah fuck you, Mexican Armed Forces

So, my Iphone Xr developed a screen backlight failure... so I went to the apple store to change it... as per my warranty.

But I bought this Iphone in the US, and it’s got CDMA technology for some fucking reason.


As it happens, CDMA is banned in Mexico, because only the armed forces are allowed to use it. COFEPRIS banned it in 2013.

So Apple can’t give me a new phone because that would be illegal... they can only change the display... which they did, and they damaged the FaceID sensors in the process. So now I have a good display but no FaceID, on a phone I bought primarily because of the tech.


Now I need to go to the US in order to get a new phone, for the warranty.
