Can I get anything for this?

Can I get anything for this?

Postby Asylum-seeker » Fri Jan 08, 2016 3:29 pm

I accidentally dropped this and the screen fell apart from the body, everything was working fine, nothing was really broken then I decided to rip everything apart with my hands. I bent the screen and the whole thing shattered and ripped the back off. Don't think anything short circuited. It wasn't stomped on or thrown against the wall. It was an iPhone 6, 64GB working well with Unicom. I'm using a 6s now and was just wondering if I can sell this for parts :mrgreen:

Strange decision making process here. Suggest that it may have been worth something prior to you turning green?...

When I was 5 or 6 years old, I broke apart my first electric toy train, just to try to understand how it worked.
Many decades later, I own a screws factory and still love machinery.
So maybe, tearing down your Icrap can spur a technology-induced life passion.... or not :wink:

But remember, the toy train episode, I was just a kid, not a grown-up man...

And don't fcuking throw away the battery in the landfill...proper recycling, please :party::

That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm sure I didn't fry any of the chips.

Is it possible to rebuild this? All it needs is a new screen, a back cover and then move all the parts over. I'm willing to spend 1500-2000 to do it.

I just got a quote 650 for the glass and 300 for the back cover plus about 100 for labour. The iPhone is alive again :D

So a friend at Pegatron a contractor of Apple is looking at my phone now. I will be replacing the front and back cover and also a new motherboard. If anyone is interested I will be selling this for 3000 if not then it will be sitting in my drawer gathering dust. It's practically a new phone just think of it like the six million dollar man :D Anyway it's an iPhone 6, 64gb.

I know it's overpriced but the system is pretty unhackable unlike android there were many cases of phones being hacked.

Yes, those pieces of junk that you can use for 3 years and then resell for half its purchase price. With that crappy operating system that seamlessly integrates with all ones other devices and can be used in China smoothly without having to jailbreak or use VPN to download an app. What a piece of sh@t those things are.

Huawei Mate 7.
Longest battery life of ANY phone....period.
Better battery than the new Mate 8, better than any Shamsung or iBone.
Apps galore, dual SiM slots, ( I have two numbers.)
Kills my friends Iphone 6 and his 6S plus on speed and longevity.
It will NOT, however, pair with my iDouche. :(

So which part of the phone is still original? If you have a new battery, motherboard, front and back cover there is really not much left!

I took the phone in on Friday and it has been 5 days, all he said was front/back cover and motherboard, nothing else. Unfortunately he's not in a position to give away a new phone :|, the motherboard was not cheap but well within my budget.

He seriously put that battery back in? That is a fire hazard.

Ok that is scary but I had a closer look of my batt and it wasn't ripped or anything. I'm sure my friend has the necessary tools to check the phone before giving it back to me.

Maybe it was the picture but on the one you posted in the beginning the battery did not look too happy. But I am still fascinated about your repair, I assumed the motherboard was the most expensive part. I wonder how much it would cost to have your friend build one from scratch :)

I'm sure he probably could but the security at Pegatron is tighter than the airport or else every Tom, Dick and Harry would walk out with the latest iphones, Samsung or whatever. They have metal detetectors on the factory floors and the factory gate even managers get searched, the company is so big it's almost like a town, it's has something like 20 thousand workers in one huge compound. I think Foxconn down south has something like 400 thousand workers in one compound.

Things are starting to go in your favour, it's not going well, they're having all sorts of problems, some of the chips were damaged, it might not be revived after all, I told him to try his best and will give him another week before calling it in, might have to pay 2000 for a dead phone :roll:

Not in my favour. As much as I like to be right, I feel sorry for you in that case. I cross my fingers that it will come back to life!
