Tell me what to do with my broken, 7 month old iPhone.
I dropped and cracked the screen of my iPhone 8+ the day I started my carrier switch/upgrade.
I was planning on doing a trade-in for my current phone and getting ~$450 towards my new iPhone X. Scratch that now.
The iPhone 8 isn’t covered under AppleCare or Sprints insurance.
My local phone repair place offered me $278 for the broken phone, and offered to fix it for $199. Thought about doing it and still try to trade it in for the full $450 but I assume apple could detect it and not give me much (if any) or a return.
Should I fix it through apple for $169 to get my full $450 back with trade in? Or say fuck it and take the $278 and deal with the hefty monthly price of the phone?
