I bought the phone and it's broken. I know that I was stupid to not check, and I knew I shouldn't have done it. But if there is a way to fix it, it woudl sure make me happy. But if not, that's alright because honestly, there are people who lose their houses so 150 bucks isn't that bad.
You could take it to an Apple retail store genius bar and if it is
beyond hope then an out of warranty will cost $149 for a refurbished iPhone
as long as the iPhone has not been tampered with or hacked/jailbroken
in any way
OR you could ask your "friend" for your $100 back
you could try standard trouble shooting
restore as a new iPhone
So how do I restore it? And can't apple fix any phone? Like why couldn't there be a way to?
Assuming you want Apple to look at iPhone without a charge a good way to
start is to show you have tried the standard troubleshooting as I
These are described in the user manual and even under warranty
the genius bar will expect these to have been tried before they spend time
looking at an iPhone as normally these steps fix most issues
However it is up to you
I will try that and write back. Thanks for the help.
