dont think they will replace it anywhere, unless of course you have accidental warranty

^ that is correct, though the price has increased a little. Its a refurb, but a good deal considering they don't have to offer you anything at all.

you need to go to the apple store, but you need to make appointment first, don't just turn up as they will refuse to see you

You can give the Apple store your phone and £140 and they will give you a brand new one. I did this with a 16GB one.

Less than a month ago and in the Trafford Centre.

The phone was a 16GB contract one, that I was given by my brother to sell on as faulty. The bloke in the Trafford Centre asked if it had been water damaged, which I genuinely wasn't sure of so I just said I'm not sure. He said it looked like it had been submersed in water, but that this made no difference and I could still get a like for like replacement for £140.

EDIT - forgot to mention the phone was out of warranty. Had it been in warranty and not water damaged it would have probably been replaced for free. One final thing to add, is that the replacement phones only come with 90 days warranty, but they are brand new.

OK. Well the Apple store is your best bet. Make sure you book a Genius Bar appointment though, this can be done online.

Definitely, for any model. All they ask is do you want it reparing, you say no. They'll ask how it was damaged, if you know then tell them. That's about it. Just make sure you make it clear you want a replacement so they don't spend ages trying to fix it.

No idea what happens to the old ones mate.

you dont need to lie or answer dodgy questions... you can walk in and say "I through this in a pond. Can I have a replacement please for £140?" . It's not a secret deal or anything, just not well publicised.
