So my 6T quit reading sim cards, after about 20 times trying to reboot and install the sim and switch slots etc, the tray broke and the sim fell into the phone. I WAS able to dig it out and put the SIM back into her G6 (my girlfriend liked my 7 pro and was gonna use my 6t I had as spare)

I gave up after factory resetting, flashing the ROM etc. and decided to send it in. I had a feeling they MIGHT try to hit me for a new motherboard because I used a pick to get the SIM card out (I had no choice, she needs the phone for work) and I would have been OK with paying the 150 dollars or whatever. Look at this comprehensive parts list. I'm pretty sure it's a new phone.

Seems a little high considering you can get certified refurbished for about $400.

I got mine used in pristine condition for $350 (8/128 midnight black).

That is a pretty extensive list they made though.( You even scratched the sapphire camera lens ?)

Not sure what the internal Sim card contacts look like but maybe you could watch a tear down video and get your own repair kit. It might be more minor than you realize. "Jerry Rigs Everything" is pretty great.

I see they neglected to charge you for replacing the pick and the sim card.

So I really can't reveal how much, but they're offering me a refurbished 6T at a very, very steep discount.

Lol u think they come on here and look at users price quotes? I'm sure anyone can get one for the same price they're offering u. The 7 is out their just dropping what they can because they'll have a large influx of refurbished 6ts. It should cost 20-$30 to get your slot fixed contact a real cell phone technician or do it yourself it's not rocket science

This is very interesting and providers great insight to those tear down videos. They could use this to help determine the real cost somewhat to build the phone.

Motherboard, camera, glass...expected to be expensive due to complexity of manufacturing and technology...the .05 cent screen protector...haha.

Very informative post junior member, thanks for your valuable input into the topic at hand.

Back on topic, I'm glad you got yourself a refurbished device at a good price. The original quote in the OP was ridiculous.

they won't email me back about how to send payment, so yeah this is less than great.

and i don't think he was being a **** as much as "hey, i'm not laughing, i'm crying"

    I would get it fixed. Much better deal than buying a new one :silly:
