upgrading broken verizon phone
OK, so I have a 2 part question. I purchased an iPhone se last september (2016) from verizon. Since then, I have both shattered it and introduced it to minor water damage. The water damage happened in June and it is now September and I haven't had too much of a problem besides very minor screen stain. In fact, the lci is not red/on. The other night it was fully functional and when i woke up about 12 hours later, it had turned all black with vertical lines and you could see the screen stain. I could still hear notifications, but couldn't see anything but the lines. I put it in rice and nothing had changed so I put it back in and left it in overnight. Now, I can't hear anything and i don't see the lines. It was a bit hot near the camera area this morning but cooled down. I have tried resetting it many times both hard (holding home and sleep/wake button)and by letting the battery drain and plugging it in. Nothing seems to be happening except the same top area is hot. I was wondering if any of you have had similar situations and if it is worth fixing. Now, the second part is if it is a lost cause and not worth fixing, I was wondering if verizon would let me upgrade to a 6 about halfway into my term with the phone before it is eligible for an upgrade. I'm not sure what would be cheaper and i don't want to have to pay off my current phone if it is broken. Anything would be helpful because i have no clue what to do! HELP ME!!!
Is this a good question?
