Customer Question
I dropped my iPhone...

I dropped my iPhone 7 plus &* screen is cracked, it is 1 year old & only half paid off. No insurance. is it worth getting repaired or should I buy a new one?

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried a force reboot on your iPhone (pressing and holding the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons for 10 seconds)?

It works fine but the screen is really cracked pretty badly.

Technician's Assistant: Happy to help. Want a weekly JustAnswer email to help with other issues? If so, what's your email address? And if you'd still like to talk to the Mac Expert, I'll connect you shortly.

Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

The screen replacement would be cheaper than buying a new one. Do you have to turn it back into your carrier when you upgrade or do you own it?

If you see an option for remote support, please ignore it as it is an automated message by the website
