    Default iPhone 4s Damage
    Hello, I recently dropped my new iPhone 4s about 2.5 feet off of my bed. It landed on my dad's socked foot, then on the carpet. Since then, the phone rarely gets more than 3 bars (sprint). Is there any possibility of internal damage??

    More info:

    I have a body glove case: http://www.wireless.att.com/catalog/...98-228x374.jpg


    It also rattles when tapped directly across from the volume buttons.

    Thanks in advance for answering

    Thats weird. I recently dropped mine as I was walking and pulling it out of my pocket in a Walmart. It slipped out of my hand and I grabbed for it then it fell on the floor and went skidding about 10 feet and hit the side of a shelf. Works great.

    The only way to know for sure is to open the phone and see what's broken. Otherwise your just taking a shot in the dark with what's actually wrong.

    You can do it yourself way cheaper. You'll probably be able to see what's wrong by just removing the back.

    Three reasons NOT to do it yourself:
    1. lack of experience
    2. I have lots of money from app sales so I can easily afford it
    3. I hurt my finger recently and its buddy taped
    4. The guy who fixed my iPod touch 3RD generation (TestTech iRepair) is AMAZING. He used to work at Apple, and he can really fix iDevices.

    Week signals might mean your antenna was damaged one way or another when it fell to the floor.

    Underlikely. Sprint has bad service where ever you do indeed go.

    I don't know if I'd say that's true. My buddy uses a rooted evo to play MW3 and black ops on PSN (ps3) and it runs surprisingly smooth I might add.

    Take it to Apple & get a new one, only take apart iPhones that no longer have warranty. Just tell them it's not working right, show them & they'll replace it for free. Don't tell them u dropped it, just show them & say as little as possible. I've had 4 iPhones replaced, in last year without question. In & out in under 15 minutes!

    Yea, for some reason NOVA 2 and Netflix work VERY well over Sprint 3G. But plain old internet doesn't. What gives?

    I once dropped my iPhone 4 from about 4 feet above and none of the Wi-Fi or 3G or any network connects. And I tried to flash it, after twice, it works again. I don't know if it'll also work on iPhone 4S, I have no dare to do it on my iPhone 4S .

    I was distracted. I meant 4.

    I recently looked at someone else's iPhone 4S and it had all of the same issues. I just think Sprint is retarded.
