I just got my new Gs4 January 7th, and my son hit it against my iPad..
I go into t-mobile today to exchange my phone and the guy tells me my LCD is broke and there is nothing they can do.
We brought the phone. 700.00!! It's only a couple days old.
I have a prepaid plan so I just switch over my SIM card when I got it, I never had a "plan"
The crack it so small that you can't even see it. I had no idea there was a crack. It's in the right hand corner.
People want to charge me almost 400 for a new screen.
You can't even see the crack!!
They were going to exchange it until the guy look at my phone soooo hard
Christmas just left, I have two boys I don't have the funds for this but do not want to go phone less, and I put so much money into getting this phone because I really wanted it..
It will power up, black screen. Can't see or do anything on it
Someone pleaseeeee help!
Do you know what I can do or someone that can fix it for cheappppp?!
Thanks in advance

Re: LCD broke
Welcome to the forums. Sorry to hear about your device. iFixit has a channel on YouTube that breaks down things like this, but be advised: Many times repairs like this other things are often damaged during removal. and iFixit techs are used to dealing with stuff like that.

Hopefully you'll find a cheaper solution without voiding the warranty.

Re: LCD broke
Call Samsung for a off warranty repair, they charged me $180 for new lcd on my S4 in november. You will need a credit card.
