    What would be the cost, im weighing up AppleCare for peace of mind. Only got a few days left (a year goes fast these days!)

    An out of warranty replacement is $199 + tax.

    Check your local apple support site. What you want is called an "out of warranty repair". Price will vary a little by country as well as iPhone model.

    They don't fix it unless it's the back glass. They swap it take your money and give you a 90 day warranty. If it's the back glass it's £25

    How damaged is it O.P?

    If you approach them nicely and you tell them the truth of what happened to your phone, they might give you a free replacement. ;)

    That's from hearing stories about Apple's wonderful service though...

    Its not damaged yet... I am almost out of warranty and as I have been very happy in the past with Apples replacements (in warranty) I was thinking about AppleCare

    If it's not of significant damage when your warranty expires, you might be able to get a free-of-charge replacement if your Genius is kinda. But as mentioned the out-of-warranty service costs $199 + tax compared to Apple Care for $69.

    if its under warranty you will get a "refurb swap" and it wont cost anything...
    it your out of warranty you will have to pay the $200 & tax for the same "refurb swap"
