Long story short my daughter was carrying her 2 week old Iphone 6 in her back pocket (very dumb) and slipped on some ice...fell on her rear and bent the case and SIM card slot. The phone was in a case (not a strong case), but the damage was there. The phone would still power on and off but could not get cellular service or wifi. Anyway, I sent it in to Apple repair with the hope of a long shot free repair. Well that didn't work and now Apple wants $299 + tax for the repair, or if I don't want to pay that they would kindly "recycle" the phone. Now if the phone was close to end of contract I would say forget it, but since the Iphone 6 is just a few weeks old I gave told my daughter she would have to pay for the repair. Just a couple of questions, does Apple actually repaira badly bent/damaged phone like this or just provide a refurb? Also, after Apple sends back the phone is it eligible for Applecare +? I must say that my daughter has been very good with the phones she's had in the past starting with an Iphone 3Gs. This was just a dumb accident, but she still needs to learn the consequences. Thanks for any information to my questions.
