I got rejected here in Hong Kong by 3 and Apple when my iPhone stopped working (became really hot and then went dead) because of the liquid immersion indicator (the little dot that turns red when supposedly exposed to water). I have no idea what could have triggered that other than humidity or salt air (I do take it with me out sailing but it's in a waterproof pouch the whole time). Apple's policy in this respect is awful, since they won't repair despite the fact that the other immersion indicators were not triggered at all.
They also offered to "repair" it by charging me the exact same price as a new one (actually $600 HKD less, $5400 for a 16G). Terrible.
Being a recent convert to Mac (late-2008 MBP) & Apple I feel cheated, I thought the company was known for treating their customers well. Am a software developer and have started writing apps for the App Store, and this, coupled with what I've read about the problems they have been having with their App approval process is making me reconsider whether they can be trusted at all.
Does anybody know of a good reliable shop that can attempt to fix it for me?
