    Hi,

    So the other day i took my iphone apart as i want to change the back cover as it has a chack in it, I undown the phone and replaced the cover but then after a few days if i touched the top left hand corner of my phone it would make the phone virbate. then yesterday i fought i would take it apart and see if i could fix it the problem is that now when i use the phone it keeps freezing and i have to undo the phone disconnect it and then reconnect and the phone comes back on.

    Does any one know if there is a way to fix this or do i need a new phone.

    At this point you need to take it somewhere for a proper repair.... Or take this as an opportunity to upgrade.

    Agreed, you've done enough damage - bring it to someone that knows how to fix it.

    Your first idea is insurance fraud?

    Oh GOD NO! I meant take it to the places above so Apple can't void his warranty for taking it apart, or upgrade to a white iphone or refurb black. What I was saying was that Zagg or square trade are more likely to fix his phone at a better price. I am sorry if it seemed like fraud.

    Apple didn't void the warranty, the OP did.

    Oh, ok my misunderstanding. But next thought is are these services apple authorized to not void your warranty? I don't know, I have done zero research on third party stuff.

    A few missing screws or the wrong screws shoved into the wrong holes would explain the vibrating issue.

    You probably did something to the logic board too.

    Don't take things apart unless you know exactly what you're doing or you have a tutorial handy.

    Doesn't just sound like fraud it IS fraud to buy the insurance after you've done the damage and it is also even more fraud to claim for something you wasn't accidental. You must likely won't be caught but if you are prepare for a long court case.
