Dropped My iPhone
I was walking outside with my friends when my iPhone slid out of my pocket, onto the road, and cracked. Are there any repair companies? O_o
Apple iPhone 3G Version 3
Sure. There are lots. But you forgot to include where you are and what the damages are. You don't have to include your location for privacy of course, but just saying you should search for a local iPhone repair center.
You need to document what got damaged. Does it still turn on, is the glass cracked, does the display still work, etc.
they are lots....... if u have it under warrenty then apple might replace it for u..
if not DONT ask apple to reapir it it will cost ALOT and they will most likely advise u to get a new one..
u can prob find someone on craigslist who will do it for like $30 good luck!
i had the same thing happen to me lol
Hey sterling... at this point, you are probably better off just getting a new one...
If you're near an Apple store, take it there. They will replace the screen for under $100.
If its not that badly cracked, you can get plastic protective covers that are basically like Saran wrap. These will keep the broken glass from falling out and keep you from cutting yourself as you use it. Basically when I broke mine, I used the plastic wrap for a few months until huge chunks started coming out and then I went and got my screen replaced.
I personally would not take it to someone not certified by Apple. Even though it's not under warranty (presuming based on the age) you will get a discount if you need to replace the phone. If someone's been fiddling with it in the meantime you forfeit that level of protection.
Thanks drift. I covered it in ceram wrap and put a case over it (so the wrap on the back wont show). Thanks so much!!
