I have dropped my iphone and the back has shattered. It still works, therefore my question is can it be repaired??
You can take it to a 3rd party shop in your area to replace the back, that will void your warranty.
Or take it to apple and pay for an out of warranty phone.
Do you know what they might be called (3rd party shop) I am in the UK ??
An Apple store will replace the back for about £20 (don't remember the exact amount).
Sorry I'm out here in California. Maybe a google search will yield your answer for the UK>
The part is about 10 bucks on ebay, you'll need the tiny screwdriver and about 10 minutes of time. Easy
Take it to an Apple store in UK
My understanding is that they will only replace with an out of warranty
exchange in UK but worth visiting or calling to check
Well warrenty Becuase it will take longer to repair at a thrid party
In the US if you take a 4 or 4S iPhone with a cracked back to an Apple store they will replace just the back on the spot for $29.
not all Apple stores and process are equal worldwide
Which is why the simple approach is to call a local Apple store and ask
You will get far better information than anyone in this forum can provide.
