If you have an Apple iPhone 5, 5C, 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S or 6S Plus with a broken screen or battery, the satellite and broadcast company, Dish Network, can now send over a technician to your house and fix your handset.

Available to all 50 states in the US, Dish's Smart Phone Repair Service offers same-day and next-day appointments, seven days a week. The price of the repair depends on what iPhone model you have and the service you need (see chart below). You'll also have to cough up an extra $35 for a "driving fee." At most, to fix an iPhone 6 Plus' screen and battery will cost about $260.
