    If u don't have apple care then call apple care. And ask for a cs code. Make a story and and ask for a supervisor. I have done it like 7 times and always got my iPhone replace for free. Even if it was shatter or wet.

    I don't know, and I doubt that you can get it fixed 'for free' unless you have a friend in the screen repair business who will do it for you 'for free'.

    Define "that" in the context used in your previous reply.

    Man the responses to your question have been horrible, like people are posting just to post. Anyway, here is what going on and your options. When you dropped your phone the frame bent slightly and this is why you see the gap. Most likely Apple won't do anything because once the frame is bent usually they don't touch it because the machine they use for screen replacements won't necessarily work. You can try to take it apart yourself and carefully try bending back yourself... There are a ton of YouTube videos to watch with step by steps. Once you take apart your phone once you'll be a pro. Just make sure you watch the videos first and know what the inside looks like prior so you don't damage the ribbon cables. If you don't want to do it yourself you can use a service like icracked.com or something similar. Look on yelp for service technicians in your area and see if they have some positive feedback. If none of the is appealing you can just live with it until your next upgrade. It shouldn't really be thAt big of a dead besides just being annoying. I suggest getting a tech21 case or something like that if this is what you're gonna do. Either way good luck and let me know if you have any questions. 🍻

    You're correct. I should have asked what kind of case and what color iPhone he has.

    Bent iPhones normally don't get fixed.
    Most people either can't or are unwilling to repair their own cellphones.
    Common sense will tell you that if one of the two prior scenarios apply that a trip to the Apple Store or a cellphone servicer is the next course of action.
    No need to act holier then thou

    Not acting holier then thou... Just providing useful information instead of asking pointless questions. I thought that is what forums were for.

    No they're for first time posters to come to, cop an attitude, and make snarky comments to a respected moderator.

    I still maintain that the OP can just snap the screen back into place. I'm not buying the "springs back up" thing. It'll snap back in just fine but I think the OP is worried about doing it himself which I can understand. I guess I'm just more of a cavalier with my electronics.

    It may but it may not, depends on how badly bent. Definitely the first thing to try though.

    The OP only has a few options.
    1. Get it fixed at Apple pay the Price
    If the phone is bent Apple may replace it for a price.
    If the phone is bent do it yourself may not be the way to go.
    Bite the bullet next time and get Apple Care for the 2 incidents of accidental damage.
    If a user gets Apple Care on anything get it on a iPhone. I feel it's more likely for a accident to happen in the first year than a hardware issue.

    Doesn't matter how anyone answers the OP's question. What matters is that the OP has to protect their purchase with all available options.
    How bout that!
    No one here is responsible for OP's decisions.
