Same thing will happen with the iPhone4. We will be getting an iPhone4 8GB when the iPhone5 comes out
I would love to know where you heard that from since it doesn't seem economically feasible at all.
As far as I know, all iPhone returns just get a new body and new screen covering and then get sold as refurbished.
