    Hi, I want to take my out of warranty iphone 6 to an apple store to get the screen replaced but I read that if the new screen fails to calibrate I will be obliged to pay U$S 329 for a new phone... My phone is not bent but it has a lot of little scratches and dents.
    If the phone fails to calibrate, shouldn't they return it to me with the broken screen? I mean, it's still a fully working phone.

    Thanks!

    You can get the display assembly for the iPhone 6 from eBay for less than $40.

    Follow the guide on iFixit to replace the display assembly.

    Well if the phone fails to calibrate, don't they usually contact you if it indeeds a full replacement rather than screen? If this is the case, can't you just turn down the offer?

    yes, and yes.

    they don't force you to pay for something that does not end up working.

    The thing is that during the calibration process the phone might get bricked

    then if that happens.
    1. if you had to pay for the repair, the phone gets replaced.
    2. if your phone was under any warranty i.e.: the 1yr standard warranty of apple care plus. whatever they do and the calibration machine doesnt work then they replace the device.


    even if you had to pay for the screen, they honor their warranty of what you came in for. if you have to pay for the screen and they cant fix it, they should replace there device but you'll still have to pay for whatever the screen cost.
