    I have an iPhone 4 and although I've had it protected, I am having problems with EVERY TECHNOLOGICAL PROBLEM POSSIBLE. First, the screen broke and I got it replaced but since then, whenever my face makes contact while on a call, it mutes or goes on hold or randomly activates speaker and even hangs up. Then the home button decided to stop working. That was fixed too, except now it works when it wants too. Somewhere between all that one of my screws went missing and the other got stripped. Now, on top of all this, the phone is stuck in silent and the volume buttons & silent switch are unresponsive AND the lock button refuses to lock. Long story short.... HELP!!! Where can I get replacement parts to fix it or go to get it fixed? What do I do once I have the parts? I have a 3G that also hates me so info to fix the same problems for that would be great too. Thanks all.

    How / where did you get it fixed those other times?

    Did you purchase AppleCare when you got it?

    Why not just pay the $149 for OOW replacement?

    Sorry to hear of your woes.

    You've had good advice here to purchase a replacement and let this one go to :apple: heaven.

    Or continue to mar your user experience.

    Ouch, that's just terrible luck. I think I'd have to agree with the suggestion to go with the $150 out of warranty replacement. Having all those issues would drive me crazy.
