Answer:
Answer:

My husband bent the device because he was in a rush and proceeded to toss the IPod onto the seat of the car with one hand while closing the door quickly with the other. However, what he didn’t factor was the IPod bouncing completely off the seat to the same side as the door he was in a rush to close and it landed at the precise spot in the closing door as to what you have seen in the picture. I was shocked when he arrived home to hear the story and my suggestion was to never throw or toss your device to begin with. Thank you for taking the time to reply and I have told him the sad news that it will not be resurrected.

It cannot be fixed. If some of it works like that, then they will probably offer you the out of warranty replacement, however you will have to pay for it. See this for costs. iPod Service Answer Center - Apple Support

No.


https://www.apple.com/legal/sales-support/terms/repair/generalservice/serviceter msen/ - iii. If Apple receives the original product within the Return Period in a condition that is not eligible for Out-of-Warranty Service, your credit card will be charged an additional amount representing the difference between the replacement value of a new product (“Replacement Value”) and the Out-of-Warranty Service Fee, as described at the Service FAQ Web Page. An original product that is inoperable due to unauthorized modifications or has failed due to catastrophic damage, such as the product separating into multiple pieces, are examples of a product that is ineligible for Out of Warranty Service.

THAT, cannot be repaired. Apple may offer you an out of warranty replacement, but they may not, considering that could be described as catastrophic damage, and they will not replace for that. You may just have to purchase a new one.

It will still turn on and you can even hear the alerts when so sends a message and it even rings if someone calls on FaceTime. The top 20 percent of the screen you can see the picture but the rest is all blacked out.

Ok, well this is my husband’s third IPod he has ruined in the last 6 years due to “accidental” damage. Any suggestions as to help with plain carelessness(i.e. stupidity)?

The iPod (it appears to be an iPhone) looks to have a severe case of sit-itis. The common cause being the device is repeatedly placed into a back pocket vertically, then sat on.


Sorry, but there's nothing "accidental" about putting continual pressure on such a device and somehow believing it won't bend.


The solution is to stop sitting on the device.

He needs to learn from his mistakes. 😁


Is it possible that you could reassure us all that your husband does not have a job that that might involve having other people's lives in his hands? <insert "concerned" emoticon>
