    Default Broken Microphone - will Apple repair?

    Hey

    my beloved 3g 8gb took a serious fall last week-I thought the screen would be smashed but it appeared to be unharmed until yesterday- I can make a call and hear the other person but they can't hear me- the microphone is broken
    I can make calls with my handsfree only now

    Its an unlocked and jailbroken one I got from the US ( i live in the UK) - its out of warranty also- can I bring it into Apple to have them look at it or is there any point due to it being out of warranty anyway?

    I can't see any way of bringing the phone in without them knowing its unlocked though-I don't have an AT&T sim to put in it - anyone got any suggestions pleaseeeeee?!!!

    Thanks

    Depends. In your case, it would be most likely Apple would replace the device, so you'd probably get a locked device in return no matter what you do.

    If it's just a screen issue (which I know it's not), then they will sometimes just do the screen repair on-site, but most higher-level repairs will be sent off-site for repair and they just provide you a refurb -- which will probably have the latest bootrom and the latest 3.1.3 firmware and 05.12.01 baseband, rendering your phone not unlockable.

    You may have better luck looking for an off-the-beaten-path iPhone repair facility where a guy may just replace the microphone -- your chances with Apple having your phone are extremely slim -- you'd want to restore back to factory first, re-locking your phone... Since it's a 3G, you can almost always jailbreak from 3.1.3, but the unlock is going to be tricky...

    Not altogether too much you can do to be safe here, I hate to say.

    hey n1ckn4m3
    i knew it was wishful thinking on my behalf! I did find one local place today where they will replace the mic (the mic speaker and connector are all 1 part) for 50 so guess il have to stick with this!

    thanks for your reply and information
