    So my wife has yet again cracked her screen on her iPhone. I just dont see the point in fixing it since apple charges over $300 for out of warranty repair. I only owe about $250 on it so I thought maybe selling it and upgrading her to an 6S+.

    Are aftermarket screen replacements any good? Or should I just sell the phone and pay it off?

    How much is an ATT 128gb 6+ worth with a hairline crack?

    Apple only charges $129 for a screen repair of an iPhone 6 Plus.

    $129 for a screen repair doesn't seem outrageous.

    jetsam is correct that the screen replacement is $129. The price you quoted is actually $329, and for replacement of the device.

    I thought the $129 price was with warranty and $309 out of warranty for a screen replacement? I must've read it wrong

    Nope. Cracked screens are $129 but if there's any other problems with the device then it would be $309 .

    My daughter cracked the screen on her 6+ and I had it replaced with apple. Just before the warranty on the screen was up the screen became unresponsive in a line from top to bottom.... they replaced the phone for "free" because that's what was suggested by apple. It was the $129 fee.
