@bethhh a lot of times it is an IC or other component on the logicboard that has either come off or got disconnected, as well as possibly interrupted traces from the bend on the logicboard. You would have to take it to someone who does board level repairs to get it either inspected or fixed. You would also have to consider that you will need to have the phone frame bend corrected. Post some images of your logic board and your phone frame with your question so that we can maybe help you out further. Use this guide for that so we can see what you see.

@oldturkey03 thanks for the mention but I don't repair phones anymore unfortunately (only for data). I would recommend someone, but I am not aware of any decent companies who repair the board, who do this for the sake of having a functional phone at the end of it. It would be quite expensive to do however, logic board repair, probably needs a new housing too, along with any other parts which are bent or damaged, so it may be time for a new phone @bethhh :(

@reecee it doesn't sound like the housing is 'that' bent. They are fairly easy to put back into shape (although never perfect). There are a lot of micro-soldering repair shops that would gladly attempt to fix this phone, many of them working on a no fix/no fee basis. Generally, a micro-soldering repair is considerably less expensive than an Apple swap.

I agree that for water damage, a lot of shops only focus on the data. For me, if the water damage is very localized, I will (attempt) fix it "for the sake of the phone" and back it with a 6 month warranty if successful.

For @bethhh , I would do a Google search "micro-soldering repair your town/city". Research them, ask them lots of questions about their warranty, pricing policy and experience. If you are uncomfortable with local shops, then search in your country, continent or world. Lot's of reputable shops do mail-in repairs. There are several micro-solderers who are active on this forum.

(@reecee btw, I love your Mac answers. I have been struggling with a MB Air recently, I'll probably post a Q soon and would love to hear your thoughts!)

You don't have a logic board problem until you *know* you don't have a parts problem. You'll need a known good housing and install your board in that housing to see if this is a parts issue. Any general phone repair shop would be able to help you with that.
