    I replaced my iPhone 6 to 6s plus last year. Dropped it in dogs water bowl, so used ins to replace. Now ins won't cover another replacement. Now my speaker has gone out. My husband took it to AT&T store and they could be of no help. Not even auxiliary speaker would worked. They suggested busying another iPhone and make make payments on it ( of course, that's After we pay for my current phone in lump sum! Plz someone out there tell me I can take the chop out of This phone, And place it in another phone, preferably an android, yep that's right I'm willing to to finally try one. Have never used one, instead have had every iPhone released. Plz help! Having phone with no sounds on ring, text, etc is a Huge pain!

    If by 'chop' you mean 'chip' the answer is No. If in fact you mean 'chop', it's still No, but with surreal mental images added.

    You'd probably find easier to migrate from Android to Apple than vice-versa. Apple by intent and by design has made it difficult to leave its ecosystem. Be it proprietary file formats to non-standardized hardware once you've immersed yourself into the Apple world switching to anything else involves a lot of planning, a good amount of patience, and serious efforts on your part. iMessage is a good example. You cannot just start using a texting app on an Android device, you have to go through a process of un-registering yourself in iMessage, which include coordinated apps like FaceTime, then initiate the final step to have Apple free up your account.

    (Apple refuses to allow its proprietary services like iMessage or FaceTime to be used on any other platform so there are no iMessage nor FaceTime Android apps. Also because they're protected by patents no other developers can legally reverse-engineer and add iMessage or FaceTime compatibility to their own apps.)
    While there are apps in Google's Play Store to aid in migrating from Apple to Android, you will still need to dedicate some time and effort to this whole venture. Also, if you weren't allowing your iPhone to link itself into your online iCloud account or weren't backing everything up locally using iTunes on a computer that makes everything a lot more difficult. As for a magic 'chip' that you just remove from your iPhone into a different phone -- if you were referring to the SIM card that's more of a carrier issue than an Android <<>> iOS issue. Otherwise, the memory storage chip in your iPhone is soldered to the motherboard, it's essentially a permanent component (and even if it was user-removable, because Apple uses a completely different file system, different file system structure, and a different operating system it wouldn't work in any Android phone anyway.)
    There just isn't any 'push a button and it's done' solution for you in this matter. Sounds like you're going to have to just eat the expense of getting a new iPhone, or at least accept the fact that migrating away from iOS to Android won't be a simple task.
    You mentioned your husband stopped by an AT&T store for assistance. Have either of you made an appointment with the Genius Bar at a local Apple Store? The staff at most are really well trained not just in Apple related issues but also customer service, you might get a lot better advice from there. Being an Apple customer you're eligible for that kind of tech support.

    If you're talking about the SIM chip, it should be transferrable.
