    iPhone 4S with ???? Water damage!

    iPhone 4S with ???? Water damage! 28th Nov 12 at 10:15 PM
    After purchasing my iPhone 4S on contract from 02 in June, all was fine until a few weeks ago when the speakers stopped working. No sound from keypad, slider tone or when watching a video clip. It rings occasionally! After contacting 02 - as my phone is under warranty (although not insured) they sent my phone to Apple to repair.

    The day after the repair centre received it, they sent me a text message to say the phone has water damage and cannot be repaired under warranty. They would like 110 to fix it!!

    I now have my non-repaired phone back. My questions are though, how can my phone be water damaged when its never been near water?? I'm very careful with my phone and its always had a cover on and stays inside a sleeve when not in use. Apparently the charger doc is corroded from this too. I've had the phone since June....why on earth is it corroded already? I don't have problems with this part of the phone.

    I've heard/read so many stories now of people being to their phones are water damaged and not coveted under warranty.

    Can anyone advise if they have had similar problems? And if so, what I can do as I feel my phone shouldn't have any sort of damage like this after only a few months.

    Thank you :-)
