Found 1st Jan 2009
My iphones bust after falling really hard on it...i was slightly drunk so my bad...

So the actual glass screen is fine but the lcd is bleeding and the phone doesnt repsond.

One more thing that happened which is the reason why im not simply repairing it, the back of the phone got really hot....usefull on new years eve but worrying all the same.

Do you guys reckon its gonna be a simple fix ? plus anyone know any reputable company/person that can do the job for me?

Thanks

Sounds like something has shorted and is causing the battery to heat up... which could in turn cause it to blow...

I suggest not keeping it in your pocket.

Flush it down the loo

Um.. mine doesn't. What a load of rubbish.

Is the £129.99 apple store refurb replacement thing ONLY for water damage or is it an option for anything not covered under warranty?

Nope sorry - would suggest you ring your local store. They do do it, but I dunno if there are any limits.
