Last night my 6+ had an unfortunate encounter with a cluster of keys, and at first I didn't think it left any damage, but once I sat down to browse the web, while holding the phone in landscape mode I noticed what I at first believed to be a smudge of some kind near the 'top' of the screen while looking at a white background. It didn't wipe off. I then looked more carefully under a lamp with the phone off, and sure enough, a series of scratches (running 'north/south' on the screen as seen in portrait mode) from the damned keys. Looking more carefully with the screen back on, it's hard to see on darker images and on videos, but sure enough there's about 5 spots that now have a mild but permanent distortion that's not hard to spot on white/bright imagery. When the screen is on, those scratches look like a string of little 'dashes', alternating between light and dark. So... *sigh* I don't entirely know what my options are. I don't have AppleCare+. Never needed it for my 3G, 4, or 5. Or iPad 1 or 3. So my question is: What all can I do? Could I repair this myself somehow? Could I pay Apple or a third party to repair it somehow (short of replacing the screen)? Should I just pay Apple to replace the screen and be done with it? After using the phone more this morning, I suppose I could live with it, but they are permanent and they are noticeable, though at least I can say they're relatively subtle. But they bug me for sure. Looking at the Apple website, it looks like it'll either cost me $129 or $329 to have them fix it, right? http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/repair/screen-damage/ http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/repair/other/ Anyone have any prior experiences with this kind of an issue with their phone (how to deal with minor but noticeable scratches)? Thank you for your help!
