re: Anyone attempt a iPhone X screen replacement? - Duckismyspiritanimal
The aftermarket hasn’t really found replacement screens for the X, as the oled panels are too expensive and incredibly hard too manufacture. Honestly, you are probably looking at the $279 without AppleCare for the replacement display....

re: Dual SIM Card on IPhone - Duckismyspiritanimal
From my understanding the iPhone can have both sims gsm or one gsm and one cdma if you want both plans fully active. If both lines are cdma (read Verizon) the primary line will be active, the secondary line will have some data pass through, but there may be some compromises. It’s best to speak to yo...

re: iPhone 6 screen replacement cost - Duckismyspiritanimal
Any non apple screen is a ymmv scenario. If you can get to an apple store a genuine display is $129 installed and calibrated. It’s possible to replace the display for cheaper, but during my past life as a tech at an apple store the amount of shitty third party displays causing problems or just looki...

re: Apple Watch Series 4 - Duckismyspiritanimal
Apple stores have to send out the watch to service for any issues with a watch that aren't repaired by simple troubleshooting in store. The service center makes the determination to repair or replace the watch after the applecare fee is assessed. For watches, its just as easy to have a box delivered...

re: Apple Watch Series 4 - Duckismyspiritanimal
I got AppleCare on my series 2 that I’ve had for a year and a half now and haven’t had to use an incident yet, but I’m glad I did as the cost of fixing a broken watch is about 80% the cost of the watch in the first place without it....

Service replacement...

If not plug the phone into an outlet and hold the power and volume down buttons for about 15 seconds to attempt to reset the pmc of the phone. If that doesn't work take the phone into an apple store or authorized service...
