My iphone died yesterday.. poor thing (a 3G) fell off the arm of my sun lounger onto the patio.. amazingly the screen is intact but dead(white with weird lines) and when I took the sim card out some plastic bits fell out too and case is broken!
I has been repaired (water damage and screen) before but this time I think that's it and my insurance won't repair as I had it fixed already
I have been told that APple do a replacement service for out of warranty phones.. does anyone know about this?
LOL and thanks for the link.. I shall get one!! I appear to be the grim reaper to all things technical... (killed many windows and one macbook...flushed my iphone down the loo etc etc ) and am just THE most hamfisted person ever, but my iphone is my organiser, and my preciousssssssss
Well I'm unbelievably peed off right at this moment... I did a 60 mile trip to the nearest apple store.. they replaced my phone (but it's £139 not £55 sadly) drove 60 mile home with my new one.....
and it doesn't work. No sound. Can't make calls, receive calls, nothing. Settings are all correct..even tried a restore. So now I have to make another 120 mile round trip to have the replacement replaced. I am NOT happy .
Can someone please do a link for the Apple replacement service. My 3GS died about six months ago and Carphone Warehouse wanted £169 to get it repaired and then weren't even sure if the proposed repair would work (phone doesn't work as a phone but still works on wifi for everything else).
Thx niceguy. I'm going to have a go at the various options they suggest on the website to see whether that works. Carphone Warehouse were so unhelpful. Means I won't be getting my next phone through them with such rubbish customer service. They didn't bother to suggest that I go to an Apple store to try and get it sorted.
I'd always go straight to Apple.. even tho they had given me a duff phone, their customer service was impeccable..and they were keen to make amends! You do need to book an appointment at the genius bar but it's worth it, and they fix things quickly. We are Apple family.. all macbooks and imacs and while problems are rare, if they happen they are sorted very quickly
Bumping 'cause I drowned my Iphone. SOmehow managed to flick it out my dressing gown pocket straight into the loo when switched on.
So far I have wrapped it in a small towel and placed on a radiator overnight. Sort of worked apart from home button not working, backlight is erractic. Left it for a few more hours as I was having to travel home somewhere warm and dry. Came on but now does not recognise SIM card. Have removed SIM card and it is now in a tub with grains on a hot water bottle.
