Yeah from days of research and a @%^$$@$ iPhone that is still stuck, I have concluded that it is either the NFC chip (which was working perfectly fine, I have no idea why it died), or my touch id button (tried original and spare ones, original is cracked and touch id may no longer work, but chip on it is in working condition, or my cables/$@$*!& wiring. Someone please help me before I hang myself. Why are androids so easy to fix and iPhones stubborn @%^$$@$# who can't take the slightest beating from command prompt or terminal? Its always the iTunes $@$* that gets me every time. Anyways I am buying a new iPhone tomorrow with hopes that I can have a working phone, but chraiglsist seller isn't responding and I am getting nervous and sad. &&^&^$^ !&&* I am killing myself.
