    Water Damged Iphon 3GS

    So, iv got an iphone 3gs which has been water damaged.
    Took it to apple shop who said the couldn't fix it and to get a new one instead. Its not Insured.

    Took it to a couple of local mobile phone shops but they advsed the same thing. Not fixable and to chuck it.

    Is there actually anything i can do? or even flog it on one of them money for mobile sites?

    Does anyone know of any??
    Thanks for your help!

    I got water in mine, started to go all lined and sort of corrupted within an hour then just went off, it wouldn't boot up at all, i put it in a ziplocknbag with in rice and also some of those silicone crystal things you get in shoes and sealed, and left it for 3 days, it was hard but it worked, my iPhone booted up and then just needed a good charge and reset

    Last month i took mine after suffering with limited WiFi and GPS connection. Not known to me, the phone had suffered water damage. Currently waiting still (2 weeks on due to public holidays and weekends) for an assessment from the insurance company, but i was told it is likely that it will get ditched and a replacement sent. If they have a replacement 3GS 16GB to send me is another question...

    Did you get any help?

    Cex take faulty phones in now 8GB - £27 Cash and £36 exchange, 16GB - £35 Cash and £46 exchange.

    Non-working - We buy non-working phones. Non-working phones must be intact, not crushed or snapped in half. Non-working examples: dead, cracked, broken/bleeding LCD (screen), not powering up, speaker/mic faults, broken aerial, etc. Accessories are not required. We do not sell non-working phones. Non-working phones are either repaired, stripped for parts to repair other phones or recycled into base materials to be used again. Nothing goes to landfill.

    It doesn't mention water damaged so you would have to ask instore or email them.
