    So, I recently voided my warranty be trying to replace the back of my iPhone 4 in a DIY scenario. Unfortunately, I stripped my screws and are unable to unscrew them. How much will it cost to replace my back if it's a voided warranty. Will I have to pay for a brand new phone???

    Find a machineist who can take the screws out. Then put in replacement screws and the old back. If the back is broken, you can get a replacement back at an apple store for about $30. You can also get replacement backs from ebay and lots of shops on the internet to avoid a "voided warranty".

    You can get the screws taken out and buy
    Some news ones online. Take it as a lesson and next time only get repairs down by a professional and if you are doing DIY make sure you are using all the correct tools so you don't break any of the parts.
