They do not repair them at all.
They replace them for the Out of warranty price:
If you own an iPhone that is ineligible for warranty service but is eligible for Out-of-Warranty (OOW) Service, Apple will service your iPhone for the Out-of-Warranty Service fee listed below.
iPhone model Out-of-Warranty Service iPhone 5 $229 iPhone 4S $199 iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS,
iPhone 3G, Original iPhone
A $6.95 shipping fee will be added if service is arranged through Apple and requires shipping. All fees are in U.S. dollars and are subject to local tax.

thanks for the reply.
So they just replace it with another phone? Do I go to an Apple store to do this? Can I get a different version for the replacement? Like get an iPhone 4, instead of the 3G that needs repaired?

Yes you can go to any Apple store for the replacement.
No they will not offer you a different version. You will pay the 149 fee and you will get the same model, color, and storage.
You might be better off upgrading if your plan allows it.
