How to repair your iphone screen


Advice from someone who has broken every model
With apologies to Sir Jony Ive, I have managed to break every version of Apple's iPhone, in one way or another. From getting water in the original iPhone's dock to dropping and shattering an iPhone 6 within one day of its release, I've done it all. Heck, my iPad even took a face-plant on the sidewalk once, resulting in shards of glass everywhere.

But to date08846672588d $0 to get each device repaired. Now that's pretty much because Apple's Genius Bar staffers did me a solid, each and every time I got a case of the dropsies (a string of favors that I imagine will end with this story.)

Still, if you've got a broken iPhone screen - depending on the model - there is more than one way to get it fixed.

Original iPhone

Seriously? Just upgrade it. If you're still lugging around a seven-year-old handset, you probably also have a seven-year-old cellular plan. Carriers will give you an iPhone 5C for free, and your plan will still be cheaper. And no, your original iPhone isn't worth money - unless it's sealed in the box, comes with another, opened box original iPhone, and a souvenir gift bag-all in mint condition.

iPhone 3G (and 3GS)

See above. But in case you were wondering, my iPhone 3G screen held up just fine - including when I put it in the washing machine.

iPhone 4 (and 4S)

Sadly, see above, again. But the real problem here isn't that you can't get these screens replaced, because you actually can. It's just that these older phones are officially obsolete, unable to load the newest versions of iOS. And, in addition, it's currently less expensive to buy an iPhone 5S ($99) than it is to fix a broken screen on these older models ($149 each, except for iPhone 4S, which costs $199). These repair prices were quoted by Apple, and tend to be higher than third party repair services or do-it-yourself options. But still, it's less expensive to simply upgrade to a new handset.

Still, if you like the challenge of doing it yourself, this guide by iFixitcan help you field strip your iPhone like it was a wide-mouthed bass. But before you rip into it, grab a display replacement kit, which has all the tools and hardware you need and typically costs less than $20.

Alternatively, if, like me, you broke iPhone 4's rear glass cover, you can easily swap it out, and get some pretty cool colored or brushed aluminum replacements in the process.

iPhone 5 (and 5S)

Apple's out-of-warranty cost for replacing these handsets' screens is $129, which again, begs the "why not upgrade" question. But in this instance, the answer to that might be because your iPhone 5 is still too new to toss - and I'd argue that even if you can upgrade, this phone is still plenty powerful and worth holding onto (at least as a backup).

Replacing the iPhone 5 on your own is also a little more involved than its predecessor, invoking the need for special suction tools, as iFixit demonstrates. For $59, the company provides everything you need to fix your broken iPhone 5 screen, but if you have a busted iPhone 5C or a smashed up iPhone 5S, make sure you get the proper kit - they aren't all the same. (In fact, the replacements for the colored and Touch ID sensor phones cost $89.)

As the costs of replacement parts soar, it might be worth considering having someone else fix up your iPhone. A local third-party repair shops that I contacted recently quoted just over $100 to replace my shattered iPhone 5 screen. Yup - I've broken one of those, too. Well, my wife did, a month after I broke my brand new iPhone 6.

Tricks for iPhone Cover Basics


Here are some ideas and suggestions on the iPhone, and iPhone insurance.<br /> <br /> Take seriously the threat to your iPhone<br /> <br /> <b>Let me be clear</b> - <b>iPhone misfortune</b> can strike at any time.<br /> <br /> It is a fact of life. It does not matter how many people you know who has used an <b>iPhone</b> for ages and never had a problem that could change for <br /> you or them in a moment.<br /> <br /> The question is whether something does not hit the phone, you can afford to replace it on your own pocket, and without blinking?<br /> <br /> If not, think of the iPhone coverage is recommended.<br /> <br /> Think about the theft<br /> <br /> Not a pleasant subject, but it is a common risk for appliances as desirable as the <b>iPhone</b>.<br /> <br /> You may be able to greatly reduce the risks by taking some simple precautions in your <b>iPhone</b> never be left unattended in a public place or elsewhere, which is not protected and locked.<br /> <br /> Some accessories may be up to you to fix your <b>iPhone</b> on your wrist or waist, etc. It can also help.<br /> <br /> If you have<b> insurance iPhone</b>, the flight will generally be covered, even if the phone is unattended (except in a locked and secure).<br /> <br /> Think globally<br /> <br /> In 21 century world, many of us tend to move at relatively short notice, even abroad.<br /> <br /> If you have <b>insurance iPhone</b>, it might be wise to have a policy that provided coverage for the phone even when it is outside the UK.<br /> <br /> Remember that accidents happen<br /> <br /> There is no suggestion that can prevent you from having accidents.<br /> Some specific cases may be stronger and more resilient to shocks, but ultimately the iPhone could be easily destroyed due to bad luck for a while.<br /> <br /> The only answer here, assuming they are not happy with the idea to buy only one iPhone, you have insurance to cover accidental destruction <b>iPhone</b>. Be sure to include liquid damage can also be a good choice.<br /> <br /> Do not discount the failures<br /> <br /> Modern electronic devices are generally very reliable.<br /> <br /> Of course, this is a statistical statement that provides no comfort at all if your iPhone breaks, and you're outside the warranty period.<br /> <br /> Again, a good policy of <b>iPhone coverage</b> generally covers the period from the distribution of manufacturer's warranty.<br /> <br /> Avoid the iPhone out of the loan<br /> <br /> This is a toughie, but you'll cope.<br /> <br /> Nobody, not even his best friend is likely to take good care of your property as you do.<br /> <br /> As you are under pressure, loans for the <b>iPhone people</b> were at risk. If it's one to call when you are away so maybe okay, but if not - be careful.<br /> <br /> If not<b> activated</b>, the phone can be transferred to another person who wants to borrow and so on - suddenly lost, broken or stolen and most likely your iPhone insurance coverage has been invalidated in the process. So it may be - but keep your iPhone with you!<br /> <br />

My iPhone got wet. No sound except from the phone.


Obviously the components of the circuit board are short circuited by the liquid damage. Generally once liquid gets on the circuit board, corrosion spreads like a cancer. If iTunes cannot restore it, the handset is as good as gone. Insurance to replace your iPhone is the best option here.

My iphone will not ring and i checked the orange dot


Some users who have recently updated/restored to the new iPhone firmware 3.0 have reported to have got into a problem where their phone randomly doesn’t ring when there is a call nor does the keyboard or slide to unlock button sound anymore. I got into this problem as well after unlocking and jailbreaking my iPhone 3G with firmware 3.0, my iPhone suddenly stopped ringing on calls randomly, resulting in missing a lot of important calls.
So if your iPhone isn’t ringing sound on calls, or if you are unable to hear the keyboard or slide to unlock click sounds, then try the following fixes before you panic and call Apple support:
Fix #1: Push feature is currently not working properly on jailbroken iPhone’s. If you have installed an application which supports Push Notification System then try disabling the Push feature as it may solve the problem.
Fix #2: Try Resetting the iPhone: Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. This will reset your phone’s setting to factory defaults. Your contacts, calendars photos and any other data will stay intact.
Fix #3: There is a slight possibility that your iPhone’s headphone jack may have got some dust or rust which is causing the phone to think that the headphones are still plugged in when they actually aren’t. Try blowing out air in the headphone jack or try plugging the headphones in and out repeatedly. This trick may solve the no sound problem.
Fix #4: Restore/Update you iPhone back and start afresh: If the above solutions doesn’t help in solving your problem then you will have to start from scratch by first restoring your iPhone to the the original firmware
3.0 from iTunes, jailbreak it using redsn0w and then finally unlock(3G users only) it using ultrasn0w. This has fixed my problem.
Fix #5: Install Insomnia from Cydia: Install Insomnia as your last resort. When you press the power button on the top, iPhone goes into sleep mode after 30 seconds, in the process turning off your WiFi, sound and other stuff. When Insomnia app (available for free from Cydia) is enabled, applications will keep running and sound & WiFi will stay connected when the screen is off. This should fix your problem if all of the above solutions have failed to fix it.

Poor sound quality via Bluetooth mic after switch to iPhone 3GS


Unfortunately, solution is NOT free. Until Apple decides to take good look into this issue, you are left to buying another BT headset model.

I got lucky first time around, bought new Plantronics (not Playtronics...) Voyager 520 (I do love Plantronics 3xx design, this is the next best thing). It did cost almost twice as much as my previous headsets (about 45 EUR), but it's still on the cheap "side" and (to my experience) also the best value.
Hope new headset also lasts almost whole week before needing recharge, like my "old ones". :)
