I had water damage to my 3G 8 MB phone in August.
Apple would replace it with the same model reconditioned for £139.

its such a scam, the water damage as they call it : tiny paper that goes pink if ever dampness is detected......they then dont chk anything else assuming its waterdamage and not covered. Unless you dropped it in the bath get a 2nd opinion and fight apple

they check the connection on the bottom of the iphone for corrosion which is a give away of salt water damage as it makes the pins turn a green/blue colour, another give away is tilting the device at certain angles which results in a deposit of water trailing out or else the screen as you would be able to see water under it when the device is on/off.
