For a while I was walking around with a broken phone screen until I decided enough was enough. My phone was still usable, but the screen was hard to read. I didn’t feel it was worth the money to get the screen fixed for nearly the price of getting a brand new phone. There were a few options out there. For instance some people send their phones for repairs to outside companies that claim to fix it for less than the original company’s repair price, however, many are still expensive and some have horrible reputations. In general there are some things to be aware of when sending a phone off to an unknown company. There are some fraudulent companies out there that take your phone and don’t send it back or claim it was lost in the mail, some have expensive parts inside the phone replaced for refurbished parts, or claim you need more repairs than you actually do. I suggest you know what company you are dealing with before trusting your phone to anyone.
The best option you have out there is to buy a do-it-yourself kit and replace it yourself in no time. It is cheaper, you don’t have to take any risks sending your phone away, and you will learn a thing or two about technology. I personally have very little, if any experience when it comes to technology (I confess, I even had to google the word “Digitizer”, which is the replacement screen word). Bracing myself, I gathered my broken phone, the replacement digitizer, and a tool kit and sat myself in front of the computer. Then, I found a useful YouTube tutorial and followed the step by step directions and had my phone looking as good as new within 30 minutes!
You can get amazing deals on the Digitizer screen replacement kits on all4cellular.com. Keep in mind though, that screen digitizers aren’t only for phones. There are digitizers for tablets, laptops, gameboys and pretty much any device that has a touch screen.
Most people have never heard of digitizer screens. If you haven’t, now you have.You have no excuses to walk around with that embarrassing cracked screen anymore! Now go get that fixed!
