    There's really nothing you can do. If it is broken, you will have to pay to either repair or replace it. Other than that, you'll just have to live with it, sorry.

    BTW My father was from Chios.

    it was on a soft surface.It did not bend at all.i think that the screen came closer to the backlight due to the pressure.

    Well with that in mind there may only be a slight discoloration (if you see any) in the screen, but it is unlikely any other major components were damaged from being sat on.

    Edit: if you can set a white background on the screen, that would be the best way to see discoloration. Posting pics will help us see if it is 'all in your mind' or if there is an actual issue.

    Google "white wallpaper", open up one of the plain white backgrounds, save the image to your photos, go into photos, select that photo and set it as desktop wallpaper

    Discoloration due to hardware damage would likely not show in a screenshot.

    No, you need to take a picture of it with another camera.

    This is one nutty thread. I kept my iPhone 4S in my back pocket a lot. I drove with it there, I sat on barstools with it there, and even sat on couches with it there. No issues.

    Take a picture with another phone/camera of the phone screen. A screenshot from the phone itself would not show any damage.

    Likely, the phone is fine, but if you want to double check, that would be the way to do it.

    However, as other users have mentioned, many people have sat on the 4s on a soft surface (such as a couch), it really shouldn't do any damage.
