***Announcement: Welcome to the new Verizon Community! We have merged our Wireless and Fios Communities to bring you the best place to discuss any Verizon product or service, along with all things tech! We have many new features to discuss with you in the coming weeks, but first we want to make sure that all of you who have been active on either of our communities before are able to log in! For many of you, we have been able to merge your Wireless and Fios community accounts so all of your Community contributions are all in one place. If you were active in both communities and you previously used the same My Verizon account to log into both, you’re all set! You will be able to use those same credentials to access the new Community. If one of those accounts was with My Verizon and the other was a Community Member Only account, please use your My Verizon account to log in. Please note that we were only able to merge those accounts that were attributed to the same email address. If you only had one account on either Community, you can log into that account exactly as you have before. For some of our Fios Community members, you may have an issue logging in. If you had an account on the Fios Community and you’re having login issues, please use the Community Member Only login page and use the “Forgot my info” link to reset your password. Once you complete this, you should be able to log in normally. If you continue to have any further issues logging in, please email us at verizon.community.team@verizon.com and we’ll assist you to get you back in the Community! Keep an eye on the Community announcements - we can’t wait to show you what’s in store. The Verizon Community Team
Best way to replace a broken/cracked screen on new phone

My phone is a few months old and of course I already cracked the screen. I looked all over the internet, called Apple and was give a bunch of options. If I bring the phone to Apple to be repaired they will charge $250. I might be able to have the phone fixed in an Apple store but that depends on how bad the damage is.  Apple then advised me to contact Verizon, which I haven't officially done but I bet I know the answer and price range. Now if I did the repair myself, I wind up saving an avg $100.  Does anyone know of any good wholesalers or retailers that sell the replacement kit at a fairly cheap price? Is eBay/ Amazon or any of the online stores worth the savings? I'm pretty sure I can replace the screen on my own but that doesn't include warranties like Apple, Verizon, or any repair shop would. So I guess my 2 questions are; is it worth doing it yourself and if so any suggestions on where to go to find good quality, affordable parts.  Thanks.

But if you do it yourself your risking your warranty and if you haven't had the experience on phone repair you could damage it beyond working order) Check out ifixit they have the best info on tear downs but still if your a novis at repairs then it best to let the professional handle the repair)  If you have any insurance coverage it doesn't hurt to ask if it'll cover the Damage I'm not Guaranteeing it will but it still doesn't hurt to ask the Rep you talk to I would try and ask a manager if one is available..

Good Luck..
