I agree with Ben below... but the statement that they cannot guarantee the phone will work again would worry me about their experience. I have done countless repairs on touch IC and never had the phone "Not" work again. I would explore other techs if possible or even consider mailing in your phone to a service center that offers "No fix / No Charge". there are several here on Ifixit business Pros that offer this service as well and do not charge if not fixable. Also, ask if they do replacement with New IC, if they reball the existing IC or if they just reflow the solder and don't remove it at all.
