Red face iPhone fixes cost about $6 billion ever since 2007

Being cool is an expensive habit. The cell phone of choice for the “hipper” in our midst is without doubt the iPhone and while certainly fashionable and so on, it's also somewhat of a fussbudget as $5.9 billion has been spent on iPhone repairs since 2007.

May not want to buy when realizing repairs

Often there is some type of great review for the iPhone or Apple in the technology section of every major newspaper, and that will get even worse after the iPhone5 is released. The press might want to slow down a bit, but there is a good chance all the news is going to keep going.

Since 2007, when the iPhone was released, SquareTrade, a business that sells warranties on the iPhone, estimates $5.9 billion has been spent on fixes, according to Time magazine. Before you run out and switch to the iPhone, you may want to consider these costs.

Owners dropping phones
There were 2,000 participating iPhone owners in the SquareTrade survey, 11 percent of which ruined their phones and kept them with a cracked screen while 6 percent would hold the phone together with tape, according to Time. According to Businessweek, 30 percent of total owners ruined their phone during the last year.

Most damage was self-inflicted, and it can cost over $150 to replace a screen, which will cost an enormous short term loan to replace. It was 10 times more likely that a person would damage their own phone than that it would get stolen or lost. People usually dropped their phone or somehow covered in it water when it came to getting the damage.

The case is made of aluminum on the iPhone 5, and the screen only has one pane of glass rather than 2. That could be a big advantage.

Google phones not less expensive

There was a survey produced by wireless service company WDS, according to Wired, and they explained that Android owners were more likely to call in a repair than an iPhone user. Those who were thinking Android may be best because of this could want to take a second look at their own repairs because Google OS will not save you any cash.

If you wanted something better, a Windows Mobile gadget or Blackberry may be less likely to break down. About 14 percent of calls to the service center for Android had to do with hardware, whereas only 11 percent of iPhone calls had to do with hardware issues. About $2 billion annually is spent at telecom corporations fielding Android phone complaints.
