    try taking it to an Apple Genius, as far as I am aware it is considered be a known fault and you should be able to get it fixed for free.

    It is a 3g, is there any chance of a 3gs ? greedy i know.

    Also, is it guarenteed, as I live in Carlisle, and the nearest store is Trafford Centre? and I am only 14, so would need some sort of transport, be it parents, or train.

    Maybe phone up your closest store and explain it to them, and if they say they will swap it then get them to book you into a Genius appointment so you know you will be seen when you get there.
    I don't think they make the 3G any more so you might get a reconditioned 3G or maybe 3Gs, i don't know, but make sure it's not a crack from dropping it as then you wouldn't be covered and it would be a wasted trip to the Genius.

    They will exchange your handset no problem, that is providing you show no signs of abuse or neglect. Phone up Apple support and tell them that you have the charger port crack and they will book you in with a Genius.

    You won't get a 3gs but you will a 3g as they do have warranty stocks still.

    Nearest store to Carlisle is Newcastle, eldon square mate

    They should change it without a problem if it's in decent condition.

    No chance of a 3gs though.

    Will change it for you , I got my 3GS replaced for a charger crack
