I don't really understand all the people that try to get into an iphone anyway. They either fall under the category of "if you hadn't done that, you'd still be under warranty and the replacement is free" or "you replaced/had your screen replaced with a cheap knock of and it's not working? I am so surprised! Also, now you can't even buy a replacement because you don't have a complete original phone to swap."
It's a 5,6 or 7 HUNDRED DOLLARS phone. Take care of it? If something happens, you can replace it for 1/3 or less of the price provided you can swap back something worth the price reduction (IE your original phone parts). If something less drastic happened (camera, ringer, back side, etc...) it's considerably less and there's really no reason to want to go elsewhere to have it repaired.
Really don't understand people that freak out over this.
