My iPhone 4S bought on release is now out of warranty (assuming there's only 1 year warranty)

However its lock/wake button is now stuck, it won't work.

How much is it going to be if I bring it to Apple store for a fix?


iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1.3

    Apple handles this problem with perfect replacement iPhone 4S exactly same as yours, same color, same GB etc for $199. If you want to try Virtual Lock Button, tap Settings App > General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch > ON > tap new white screen button > Device > Lock Screen. This can be used to turn iPhone OFF. To turn iPhone ON connect to power, charger or USB of computer.

    I actually am using this temporary fix.

    Though $199 or however much in UK, is quite a steep price for a 2 years old product.

    I am quite torn between getting the new iPhone later this year or just get a replacement and hold on for another year or more.
