    Ok so i was with some friends and my phone was in my back pocket and we had an air soft war. I think my phone got shot but i am not sure. By the main button there is a dense cracked area which goes into cracks through out the screen. Im not sure what has happened because the LED light still works and it has battery, but the screen is not comiing on, the only thing is a small blue line on the bottom, sometimes. Can i fix this and how? thank you

    Are you really surprised the screen doesn't work after you broke it?

    The rest of the phone is probably fine, but without the screen you can't see what is happening. Your options are basically three: try to replace the screen yourself, send it back to Samsung for repair, or find an independent repair service. i wouldn't suggest trying to repair it yourself unless you're very good with electronic repair. Watch here: This is why you never want to break your smartphone screen | Android Central

    If you send it to Samsung, they'll probably just replace it with a refurbished phone. I think they charge about $200 for this. Go to their website and look for the support pages.

    Finally, here's a Google search for S3 screen repair. There might be local services in your area, too: Let me google that for you

    Keep the phone out of your back pocket. Get a case for it.

    I sent mine in to Samsung recently. The screen was not cracked but when I dropped it the lcd broke. Samsung charged $135.00 to fix it.
