    Per their updated support page (7b):
    http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/service/faq/#warranty7

    Looks like out-of-warranty repairs are $199, regardless of generation or size.

    yea but you might as well just buy a new iphone or a refurbished iphone instead.

    these are refurbished ones:

    Out-of-Warranty Service:
    If you own an iPhone that is ineligible for warranty service but is eligible for Out-of-Warranty (OOW) Service, Apple will replace your iPhone with a new or refurbished iPhone for the Out-of-Warranty Service fee listed below.

    surely that's just the case if you commit to another multi-year contract with them?

    umm you do realize that by doing that you have to start your 2 year contract over again


    $199 is actually a pretty good ( considering that most people with water damage had a paperweight)

    5 days after I get an out-of-contract $699 replacement because they wouldn't do an OOW repair. Nice. (Dropped in the loo!)

    No, this is a repair service through Apple directly regarding the hardware, so no AT&T contract to sign.
