    Hello, I’m a new member here and wanted to see if I can possibly fix my red iphone 7 plus. I took it to the closest mall and they said it needs a new screen and home button, something else too not really sure what it was but wasn’t a big deal apparently so the total would be $220 for everything. Problem is they said they are not 100% sure if home button will work said 50/50 chance. The back of it is bent a little bit but too they said they can straighten it out though. Would it be worth it fixing and how much could I get for it as refurbished? Or can I just sell the parts? Or should I bring it to apple?

    I’m no expert, but I don’t think that can be fixed. If they say it’s 50/50, do you still pay even if they can’t make it work?

    From the pic, the frame looks damged also. Doubt it's worth trying to save.

    What about selling for parts?

    If selling for parts is possible, what stores would you recommend?

    Yes, they were not sure about the home button.

    iPhone 7+ out-of-warranty repair is $349. Apple will likely just give you a replacement since by the looks of things, they can't repair that iPhone.

    I agree. I’d be impressed if ANYBODY can make that iPhone whole again.

    This.

    That said, just me, but looks like some folks got snagged by a troll.

    If not a troll, REALLY?!
