Wait a little bit longer and get the Nokia with Windows RT or Windows 8, far better than what is available now.
But the price is the same for replacing it unless you specifically buy insurance. So when you break the Nokia and they don't replace it for less you can get a Droid...and then when the same thing occurs with it you can get a BlackBerry...

The 3gs was a great phone. One morning the speaker just quit. It isn't a big thing. well except for hearing a phone call or iheart radio or gamne sounds. The headphone jack works fine. I just need a phone that actually makes sound.
I do understand that if I break my phone that I will need to replace it. I also understand that if I drop it, or get it wet and do not have insurance I will have to replace it at my cost. This just quit. Probaly just age or who knows. I have babied this phone from the day I bought it. In a case, screen protector from the very first day.
I get it, nothing lasts anymore. And unfortuantly, cell phones are now a disposable commodity.
I'm not asking for a free phone. I just do not have the 149.00 to spend on a three year old phone at this moment in time, I will suffer through untill such time as I can afford a new phone, that will hopefully last longer than 2 and ahlf years.

The Genius did mention the 90 day I think. But thank you again.
I still have to wait though, mortgage and all those pesky bills come first.
Have a great day. and thank you ALL for your help.

Honestly, before I would fork over $149 for a replacement 3GS, I would see what deals my carrier has to offer. Assuming you're not under contract, you can get a 4 for free or a 4S for $99 with a 2yr contract from the major carriers.
Either would be a huge hardware upgrade, have additional features in iOS6 that the 3GS does not get, and come with a full 1yr warranty. Not to mention both are less expensive than a replacement 3GS.
