    Well my wife hasnt been able to get her iphone working with wifi since we got the phone . The phone is only a month or so old - Refurb from AT&T Store.
    She calls apple and they tell her to bring it into the store for replacement.
    Woah , sorry we cannot replace this as you tripped your dock wet sensor.
    Your standard warranty is null and so is that Applecare as well.
    WTF , this phone was absolutely babied beyond normal.
    Im thinking what if the usb cord got wet a little and inserted and it tripped the sensor?
    The headphone jack sensor is still intact but the dock one shows it was submerged , bullSh** I say.
    They want 200 bucks to replace it.
    I read on the apple forums that this has been occuring more and more lately and apple wont do crap.

    Anyone know how hard it is to replace the wi-fi card in an iphone?
    If its reasonable , where can I buy one.

    I would say its not reasonable, as there is a big chance its attached to the mainboard. Not to mention I am sure it would cost over $200 to replace.
