Would my iphone 4 32gb qualify for an out of warranty replacement?

I ended up cracking the screen on my iphone 4 32gb and purchased a red 3rd party front screen and back to fix it.

It is fixed but the digitalizer is messed up and would just like to go to apple and get it replaced.

Would it all still be able to get replaced for the $149 fee even if I have a non apple front and back?

Only if you can convince the "genius" that the parts are all original.

No, but if you put the old screen back you will be able to!

Lol don't even have it anymore, is there anything I can do like crack the front really bad and just leave a little bit of the front screen on there so it isn't obvious the red front and back arent legit apple parts?

I know that but what I meant was could I just remove both the front and back and just make the phone look really beat up? Would that qualify?

Moving your odds of an OoW replacement from zero to none. They'll need to access the serial number.

Explaining how the front and back panels went missing would make an interesting story though.

When you made it " your own " by placing non-Apple front and back, you truly made it " your own " 100%.

You should have saved the old parts, even if they were broken.

Doubtful, but you could always give them a call.

Would I qualify if I bought a broken oem front and back and tried putting it back on?
