Question: can you fix a bent iphone 7?

I have a bent iPhone 7. It’s only recently had problems where it has calling issues. I didn’t even realize it was bent until I took it to the AT&T store because it’s always been in a case. I have it under warranty from square trade, but they make me bring it to the Apple store. I am going today, but wonder if it’s worth fixing or very expensive? I’m thinking of switching carriers and upgrading instead. Has anyone had this issue?

For the most part having a bent iPhone is considered to be accidental damage. There really isn't any way it's considered a manufacturing defect covered under warranty. Apple won't actually repair it. A bent case would likely require a full out of warranty replacement. It's $319+tax for the iPhone 7.

If you have Squaretrade, pay the deductible and get a replacement. Otherwise, what was the point of buying insurance? If you want to upgrade, then sell the replacement 3rd party.


As for a case, all that I've used will flex. If the case will flex, how would it protect your device from bending? You'd need a heavy, solid metal case to protect the phone from being bent, which is not practical.
