Currently Being ModeratedMar 7, 2010 4:43 AM (in response to Jackson 13)The warranty does not cover user damage. You can get an out of warranty replacement for $199 or you can google third party repair shops and get the phone repaired.MacBook , Mini (10.5.8), Airport Express, iPhone 3G x 2, Mac OS X (10.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMar 7, 2010 4:44 AM (in response to Jackson 13)Accidental damage is not covered under your warranty. Same thing as if you crashed your car, that wouldn't be covered by your auto warranty. Go to an Apple store, make an appointment first, Apple has an out of warranty replacement program, cost is $199. If you do that, the remainder of your current warranty will remain in effect. If you use a third party repair service, your existing warranty will be voided. Apple does not repair phones(except for screen replacement), only replaces them with a refurbished unit.MacBook Pro

You get a refurbished unit.
if not there is no external damage so would i be able to try for warranty?
They have diagnostic equipment that will tell them instantly what caused your problem. You "may" get lucky, but that's extremely doubtful. Be prepared to pay the $199.MacBook Pro
