Phone Repair

My wife dropped her galaxy S4 and shattered the screen. She can still use it to text/read/make phone calls but there are a tone of cracks. I found on Amazon a screen replacement kit for $10 or so, but the "phone medic" has told my wife that in addition to a new screen it will need a new LCD touch screen. He can fix both for $250.

Will the amazon replacement self repair screen work or will the LCD touch screen still be jacked up?

Once again, when we bought the phone the repair was going to cost more than $179 dollars. Without the insurance I probably would not fix the phone and make them use a cheap flip phone we have as back up.

Since I paid nothing for the phone upfront (re-upped with TMO) then I don't have a problem paying less than a 12 pack for the insurance which would REPLACE the phone if it's beyond repair. Like the time my brilliant son ran over his My Touch 3g and we had no insurance on that phone. I had to throw it away as it was beyond repair at any cost.

I'm more than thrilled with the way I did not lose money on this phone. Even breaking even with a broken phone is a win in my book. Don't buy the insurance if you don't want. I've done it both ways and have learned that the first year of owning a brand new phone (especially a new release) is when the phone is worth the most money and worth having the warranty. It ups the resale value as well.

FWIW, iphone screens are easy to do yourself. I've done my wife's twice and her friend's once with the cheapy little $10 kits from amazon. They work great. I have no idea if samsungs are as easy to work with.

S4 and SIII are very easy to fix especially the SIII. Just pop up the 4 screws then a black screw located at the bottom by the charging port and unsnap the antenna there ya go.
