This is What You Can Do About a Cracked Phone Screen

The average cost of a smartphone in Europe right now is 372 euros. Plus, you are likely to spend more than that on the newest model.

Paying this much money only to drop your phone and crack the screen is a devastating moment.

Luckily, you have a few options to limit your time without a phone.

Read on to find the best ways to deal with a cracked phone screen.

Backup Data

Before you do anything with your broken phone be sure to save your contacts, photos, and documents to a backup device or the cloud. This will save you time if your phone is damaged internally or needs to be reset to fix.

Check Phone Insurance

If you just bought your phone then you might have a warranty that covers a broken screen. See if your warranty is still valid.

You might have bought an insurance plan when you purchased the phone, or you have coverage under your network plan.

If you are covered under one of these options then you will have to mail your phone or take it to a store for repairs. This means you might be without your phone for a few days.

Use a Back-up Phone

While your smashed screen is getting repaired or if it can’t be fixed under an insurance plan then you can use an old phone in its place.

You can switch the SIM card into your old phone if it is unlocked or if it is from the same data provider.

Pay to Fix It

You may not have a backup phone and you don’t want to part so easily with your new one. In that case, you can pay a repair shop to fix it.

Be sure to place a plastic cover on the screen while you transport your phone. This will keep shards of glass from falling out and avoid dirt from getting into your phone.

Repair shops usually can fix a smashed phone screen quickly and can cost a fraction of the price of a new phone.

Fix it Yourself

There are many ways to find out how to fix a cracked screen online. All you need is confidence and a repair kit.

Some phone screens will have stuck pixels after a DIY repair. You will have to fix this yourself as well.

Trade in Your Phone

Your broken phone may be old or you would rather replace it. If this is true, then you can sell your phone online.

The money you make selling your cracked phone might not be much but it can go toward buying a new phone.

Protect Your new Phone

Once you get your new phone be sure not to make the same mistake twice. Purchase a strong case and a tempered glass cover to protect it against cracked screens.

Don’t Let a Cracked Phone Screen Frustrate You

A cracked phone screen can disrupt your day since you probably use your phone for everything. Do not let this get you in a bad mood. Instead, be proactive by taking the steps to fix it as fast and efficiently as possible.
