Well, I dropped my phone, and the case I had was pretty (it's a selfie light case) and not protective. At least not to the degree my other cases are. Well, there was a small rock. And of course, my phone hit it. The rock hit just below the coverage area of the screen protector. And there on my beautiful phone was a few cracks that went up the front of the phone. Nothing too horrible. I could totally live with it until my contract is up in March and I can get a new phone. So I took the case off my phone in order to put a more protective case on it. My daughter grabbed the phone off the counter and tried to hand it to me. But I wasn't ready, and she let go too soon. It fell, in slow motion, screen first on the floor. I knew in my heart, I just already knew, that the crack got worse.
So now, my iPhone that's less than 2 years old has a spider web crack in the bottom left inch or so of the screen.
So now, do I get a new phone? Insurance will cost me about $150. I have less than a year, 8 months to be exact, until I get my new phone. So I'm going to try to hold out.
But maybe you can't! If your phone is cracked and you want a new one, check out a site like Gazelle.
CNET has noted that Gazelle is a great place to buy a certified pre-owned phone. Read the article here: http://www.cnet.com/how-to/4-
Use Gazelle to get a phone to hold you over until you're either eligible for a new phone, or can buy a brand new one.
