    Okay, so on Friday, I'll be deactivating my 5S and moving onto the 6. I haven't decided yet what to do with my 5S, but want to make sure it's in tip-top shape. Anyway, I have AC+ on the 5S and for the past couple of months, I've noticed the top left corner glass seems to be "coming off". Basically, if I press down on the top right corner, it actually goes down. It also does it a little bit, not as much, on the top right corner. If I press down on the other 2 bottom corners, nothing happens.

    I have 2 questions. Can I actually get a deactivated phone repaired? (I'm guessing yes, just want to make sure). Second, would this be AC+ replacement issue or a warranty replacement (free)? Phone has no major damage (usually scrapes/dings on sides, nothing crazy) and no water damage.

    I'll probably wait until a week or two after release so I can go to a more sane Apple Store.

    If you're quick, it'll be a warranty repair. In the UK, you can get a pro-rata refund on applecare+. Assuming it's the same in the US, that's also worth looking into before you sell your phone on.
