    Hey, I was wondering if anyone has any idea if it's possible to upgrade an iPhone for a fee if getting it repaired at the Apple store. Like instead of paying the 200 dollars to get my cracked screen fixed, can I pay 300 or 400 to get a refurbished 4S instead?

    I think it has more to do with being locked into the contract with THAT phone with your service provider, not really with Apple.
    So I'm not too sure you could without buying out your contract.

    That is, if I understand you correctly.

    He probably has a warranty for AppleCare or such. So I don't think he is locked to a contract. Call up your provider first about upgrading the line

    Yeah I don't have a contract I'm doing prepaid. I also want to stay off-contract which is why I was wondering if it was possible to get an unlocked 4S outright with the price subsidized by my broken iPhone.
