    I suspect you'll need a new logic board, have a quick search on Google there are a few repair places that fix iPhones and sell parts.

    Will your household insurance not cover this as a logic board won't be cheap?

    You could always deprive the child in question of pocket money for next 10 years!!!

    There's no saying where the next piece of metal will get jammed, I'd make sure I didn't withold money from them. :devil:

    Seriously though, try the household insurance route. Some bank accounts cover this stuff as well, the 'platinum' or privilege type with a monthly fee.

    [Garys iPhone emits 3 bleeps and runs back to its temperature controlled, velvet lined room, surrounded by bodyguards :eek::eek::D]
