Its a Galaxy SIII so I'd hate to have to throw it away; what are my options?
Like I said, the glass would have to be replaced and it would need a new battery. Also, its a Sprint phone while I have T-Mobile. Would that create some issues?
It has some scratches on the outsides, not including the glass. So even if I fixed up the glass, it would still have some serious wear and tear. Is it worth it to fix it up and sell it? I currently have the 1st generation Galaxy and wouldn't mind an updated phone. Could I fix it up and use it myself (basically, how do you go about changing the phone's setting from Sprint to T-Mobile?)?
It illegal now to unlock a phone with the Carriers permission. Unless it is a LTE is the only way to possibility reuse it. I would ditch the phone you never know the story of that phone.
