    Remember people, if one function of your phone does not work, the rest is fine and can be salvaged or repaired. Do NOT throw them away immediately after a shutoff of some kind

    It’s a poor design choice to hold in the battery. perhaps it was actually designed to prevent users fixing their own phones.

    This just shows that making an iphone or any phone is around $20 and not $1000. All the parts are plastic or cheap aluminium

    Always take advantage of free phones.
    If you have repair knowledge, that is...
    After you repair the phone, sell it for about $100. Maybe.
