    You can contact Jason Keifer at http://ithinkitsbroken.com/ or jason@ithinkitsbroken.com

    He may have the part and can replace it for you for a fee.
    He replaced my broken screen and did a good job with it.
    Tell him I refer you.

    Well I am not in the UK anymore, so shipping and logistics will be a huge problem, so returning to my primary question

    will apple replace it ?

    Maybe, there have been some reports of Apple denying service on iPhone sbought in the US but never activated with AT&T. Maybe Apple won't be so difficult in the UK due to the impending opening up of the UK iPhone market to more than one carrier selling the iPhone.
