So, my iPhone 5 has always had this problem. I've been really busy with school and work or i would have taken it in in september while it still had applecare plus. It has vertical lines running down the screen, most noticeable on the top part. Apple is telling me to pay $269 for this. Has anyone had this problem out of warranty and what did you do about it? I know i shouldn't expect a free replacement but under the circumstances, it seems like it should be an option.
