This is an electronic gadget and may get malfunctioned/ broken in few months or sometimes in few days. In that case if it is not under warranty period, prepare yourself to pay quite a bit for the repair. Iphone repair cost is little higher, so if you have bought an iphone, make sure you keep it with more care than your kids. It is always recommend that you do not keep iphone into your pocket. Most of the offices are partitioned by cubical blocks, there are good chances you collide with the edges of cubical blocks while running around the office and get your phone damaged. So better you don’t keep it in your pocket!
However if you still want to keep your Iphone in your pocket, face it downward, towards legs so that if you collide with any metallic block or wooden table, it doesn’t get broken. The most common problem is screen damage which makes you become ready to spend quite a bit.
In case of screen damage and if it is not under warranty, you have two options; either you send it back to apple authorized service center or get it fixed by some local iphone repair service provider.

Of course if you buy faulty part from apple store, it will cost you more.
However in case of local iphone repair service provider, you need to ask the service provider whether he is efficient in iphone repairing or not. This is a tedious job and you need to give little stress to your mind and try to find out if he is really an expert at iphone repairing. Ask him if he ever has repaired any iphone successfully, if yes, you may ask for the contact no. of that person, contact him to make sure if he really can do that.
