    Hey guys

    Today I left my phone on the roof of my car and drove off,the phone will now not turn on and I have tried doing everything I can

    The iphone has a dent on the back top right side about 1cm left of the silent mode button which you can hardly see because it had a cover on it. What is under there? Is it the battery or what?

    What can I do now? The devise is still in warranty with apple but is Jailbroken,will they fix it then? Also I live in South Africa so they will have to ship it to the US to get it fixed :(

    Any help will be greatly appreciated!

    Apple do not cover accidental damage. Do you insurance?

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    Homeowner's insurance (or perhaps renter's insurance) is probably your only remaining option.

    Unfortunately the phone is not insured :( it was going to cost me about $50 a month to insure the phone in South Africa so that's not a option :"(

    Will these iphone repair shops be able to fix it by any chance?
