    Wife's iPhone 4 has a sleep button issue. AppleCare? or do I need to look at replacement. We dont currently have AppleCare, and we are nearing the 1 year mark (in July) where we could no longer buy it. I did have a concern that there was liquid in the device, but everything else works fine.

    Help! I've been told I need to HAVE applecare when I walk in, not buy it on the spot, I dont want to end up buying apple care and then turn around and drop $200 on a replacment device.

    Then you have the 1 year customary Apple warranty still in place. You could just exercise your warranty and have the sleep button replaced.

    As the previous poster said, you have a one year warranty.

    You don't need Apple care until your one year warranty is up.

    Just go get it checked out.

    A concern? Why? Because some liquid were spilled on it?

    This is why I buy SquareTrade instead of AppleCare. ST covers full immersion and other accidental breakage.

    I realize this doesn't help the OP, but thought I'd mention it.

    Unless the iphone got submersed, you're fine. A little liquid is nothing (it won't trip the internal flags).
