    Thumbs up Liquid Ingress repair POOL SHIT

    I had to share this with you, My iphone 3GS 32 GB which I bought 4 months ago suddenly stopped working when I connected it to the charger. I took it to Carphone warehouse for under warrenty fix. They kept the phone for 3 weeks and I went to pick it up today. Guess what they had to say, the phone been sent back because it had Liquid Ingress! and that voids the warranty. If I want it fixed I have to pay 150!!!!!!!!!
    I swear I didn't drop it in water or used it in the shower as I was aware of the moist and liquid problem with the iphone. But the lady didn't believe me and I felt as if she thought I was a lier despite that I bought 3 iphones off their shop.
    Cut the story short, when I checked the moist sensor it was white and not red! so I thought if the iphone warranty is voided now why not dissect it and see what is inside, and to check where are the other moist sensors. So I did open it and guess what there was no indication what so ever that the phone was opened or checked at all. So I gave it a good clean and checked all clips and connection.
    When I put the iphone back together, GUESS WHAT HAPPEN? It came a live, YES IT IS WORKING NOW!!!! I don't have an engineering degree, but managed to put it back to life with no cost.
    What an AR***** engineer not bothered to do his job! I am so disappointed with APPLE having made this excuse of moist sensor bla bla so that their lazy engeneerer could not be bothered to do their job proberly.

    Great that its working but I'd be pissed if they took my warranty away for no reason.

    So if you're 100% sure its never had any water damage & the moist sensor looks ok, stand your ground go back and insist they take a closer look

    If they are wrong hopefully they should reinstate your warranty 4u.
