Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone

1 Answer

I might need a lawyer to answer this one...

Ok, so I have a friend that got an iphone last February and the screen cracked, which isn't due to abuse on his part, but rather an accessory sold by "the apple store"...Sooo, after talking to a tech at apple HQ, I think my iphone is covered under warranty, since it's less than a year old, and I have the original reciept...BUT: (and this is the Question) I am NOT the person whose name is on the reciept, and I didn't tell the apple tech this, but it will come anyone out there sure or even mildly confident they can tell me if there is any way to salvage this idea of buying my friends broke iphone and getting a new one??? Thanks for your time!...

You would have to see if the warranty is transferrable. It should be posted on or in the paperwork for the phone. AT&T may know the answer as well.

How can I track my other iPhone 5 grime the primary line

I Dont understand the last 4 words of your question? But...
If you have "Find Friends" or "Find My iPhone" App installed on the missing iPhone then you can track an iPhone from a computer or another iPhone!
On the iPhone you use Find Friends or Find My iPhone and you will need the username & password from your Apple Account which can be checked with iTunes on your computer.
From a Computer you can use a web browser like Safari to log into your Apple iCloud Account at where you will see the "Find my iPhone" icon.
Perhaps this is the answer your after!

I dropped my iPhone and the screen is shattered. I don't want to pay for another phone. What should I do? The screen is cracked only at the top so it is still usable, although I'd rather have it fixed.

somebody has to open the iPhone and replace the part. The cheapest way is to do it your self and you should get aways with around $70. The part is available on ebay. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPhone Screen Repair Services. To try to do it yourself, here's a iPhone Repair guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. As you can see from the guide, this is not quite that easy. Maybe a tech savvy friend can do it for you.

Ok i have a problem i bought a iphone from my friend last night so he restarted everything and its been on the same screen for the whole night last night i dont know what to do i tryed restarting and...

. Press-hold the Home button (big circle below the screen) and the Sleep/Wake button (on top of the iPhone) simultaneously.
Continue holding both buttons (Ignore the "Slide to power off") until the iPhone shuts off and begins to restart.
when you see the silver Apple logo you can let go of the buttons.
and then try the phone and see if it is ok now
good luck

The screen has a crack in it. Is it covered under warrenty?

Physical damages due to abuse or misuse is not covered by the warranty and neither is acts of God or terror that has caused damage to the computer.

Those covered are due to poor workmanship or any factory defects.

So, this means to say that any repair that needs to be done to rectify issue will be additional cost to you.

Iphone touch partly not working

The most likely reason is that the touch pannel you have installed is defective. One of the printed connectors on the connection tape is not working correctly.
Try installing the old screen again and see the results (if available).
