    It was working perfectly. I took it into Phone Stop. Suddenly I had to replace the battery and the case was bent. Effectively doubling the cost from the estimate. Is this needed and common?

    You did say you dropped your iPhone, right? Well, it's possible that the battery was also damaged during the drop. If you had purchased Apple Care Plus, you would have been charged a single price no matter what the damages were to the device in this regard.

    I took my Iphone 5 in for screen replacement. They charged me to straighten a bent case. The battery also required replacement. How common is it for a company to "discover" additional problems when the get their hands on your phone? Bill went from $60 to $116.

    If you have a complaint about a certain repair company, please notify your local Better Business Bureau.

    I have had the phone for over 2 years. Apple care would have expired.

    Before I start a formal complaint I need to know if my experience is fairly common of not. Of the thousands of dropped phones, how many have the additional damage?

    Hopefully, members who have dropped & damaged their iPhones, and who did not have AppleCare Plus, Square Trade, Asurion or another mobile insurance plan, will respond soon.

    Did the phone work after you dropped it? Was it bent? If all you could see was a cracked screen, why did you allow them to do the other work?
