Hi Paul.

Erm...

Badly cracked front screen. Badly cracked back cover. Rear camera blurred/ full of dust. Sticking volume button,sticking home button.

Repair price about £120 but the phone is 2 years old and getting a bit glitchy.

Refurb with an Apple warranty sounds like a better idea.

what do you think?

Cliff.

The back cover (inc lens) and camera modules are very easy repairs.  The home button, volume buttons and front screen would probably take an hour to do (if you are used to that sort of thing) but is quite fidly.  If you can get a refurb for £120 with that level of damage its probably worth it Smile
