Apple will replace the phone for $149. The phone is not considered user servicable. If you try it, it may work fine for you, or it may end up as a paperweight. I guess it depends on how much you're willing to risk.
At the very least, I'd get rid of the dock.

What do you mean by this?
"The phone is not considered user servicable."
I was thinking of following a guide like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDdlbT7IBwA it looks like theres only screw and plugs to be removed, so fairly straight forward as long as you are careful with where things go. A replacemnet part is around £5.
I need to keep using the dock. At the moment it's the only thing that will charge the phone Of course once I fix the phone then I'll look at fixing/replacing the dock.

I mean that it is not considered user servicable. There is a very good chance that you will end up with a brick when you are finished. Especially if you are not experienced working with delicate electronics.
It's up to you.

I mean, it is not meant to be serviced (opened up and repaired) by the average consumer. Heck, even Apple won't open them up and repair them in store. They replace the phones entirely and send the broken ones back to be re-manufactured.
