If the phone is a 4 / 4s then to replace the screen and the "lock" button (do you mean the mute or the power button ?) you're looking at about 60 for the two, supplied and fitted.

The WiFi problem is usually caused either by a software fault (you'd need to back it up and update it) or, and it's very common, the chip that controls the WiFi on the board has gone down.

Apple say its rare, had three of them in this week alone, so it's a common rarity.

Solutions to fix it vary, but with the other faults you're getting close to an exchange price so I'd back all you pics up and reload them on to a nice shiny new one.

Sorry to hijack thread. I need a repair to mine it's an iPhone 4S stuck in recovery mode. When I try to update either in recovery mode or dfu mode it comes up with error (-1). This suggests a hardware error, would you be able to fix it ?.

Thanks
Sam

If its a -1 error this is a hardware fault, can be that someone has tried to jailbreak it and messed it up, or they've changed a part and put a non genuine one in (usually a poor copy screen).

If its copy parts, change them and then reset it from DFU mode.

If its not and its a genuine failure take it to Apple and get them to change it if its still under warranty.

If its out of warranty (and only if it has genuine parts) you'll need to pay them for an out of warranty repair (they give you another one), currently 139 for a 4s

It had the dock connector replaced. The old one has been put back in and still showing same error in dfu and recovery. There are no YouTube vids specific to this error that I can find.
