    Hello all,

    I am trying to help a kid teenager in our youth group. He dropped his phone (in a case), but the screen seems to be damaged. Nothing was cracked externally, but the picture below shows what the phone looks like right now.

    Apparently, the phone screen was replaced 4-6 months ago by a third party vendor (single man "iPhone fixer" shop in the middle of the mall). The vendor is no longer in the area. BTW, I did not recommend the third party repair...

    Please advise what you think I should do?

    I have the tools (pentalobe screwdrivers, spudgers, etc.), but I've never trouble shot an iPhone 6.

    From my experience, the screen under the glass has cracked. The screen would need replacing!

    Thank you. Would recommend any specific brand or model of the Amazon screen kits? (budget is $40-60 max)
