Default My phone dilemma

So in mid-July, my S3 fell out of my pocket and the screen just shattered. I was able to use it for a while as I waited on an Amazon order for a glass screen/digitizer. So it came in on Friday, and I took it to a guy I know who fixes the phones. He told me the LCD has a small crack in it so I would have to get a whole new LCD screen that would cost me around $200. I said screw it and am now trying to find out how I can get a cheap but still great phone. My uncle told me there is a Samsung Upgrade program where they give you credit for a new phone or something like that if you trade a broken one it? I still have 8 months to go on my upgrade for my T-Mobile contract. I was just going to ask what you guys suggest me doing and where I can get a cheap phone. Looking for another S3, iPhone 5, S4 or HTC One.

u can buy selected unlocked android phones here but its pricy. your best bet for a high end phone and the lowest cost will be craigslist. but i would strongly advise to do some collateral agreement as u can get burned by fakes or find major faults while its operating.

i was in the same boat 2 weeks ago as my galaxy s2 closed up shop. i went and ordered me the 2013 nexus 7 last friday and im currently using a old school pre paid phone. im gonna wait a couple more months for the htc one max, nexus 5 and galaxy note 3 as one of those three will undoubtedly be my next smartphone.

htc one/ s4/ nexus 4

the no-contract Nexus price is not that far off from the $200 iphone with contract

you get timely android updates and you aren't stuck with a contract , and it works great with T-Mobile so you can stay with your plan till its done and switch later

Nexus 4 is the best value as far as unlocked/brand new/ no contract phones

There are so many broke and /or cheapskates on here ...


If your eligible for an upgrade use it.

If your not. Go on Craigslist and buy an s3. I'm sure they go for 100$ on there by now ..



Smh...

Cheapest S3 I've seen is like $300. Well my friend knows a guy who owns an AT&T store and apparently is giving out S4's for like $200. So I'm going to hop on that as soon as possible.

Did a quick search and found 2 for 150.

I'm not suggesting an older. Only brought it up cus he didn't want to spend 200$and not extend contract. 200$ and extend contract you can get s4. So...get a used s3 or extend contract. Cheap skates.

I would definitely extend my contract if I wasn't looking to switch to a different carrier. I mean I want to wait to see if I even want to stay with them. But could you do a deal like that? Go in and extend my contract and get an upgrade right away?

If your eligible. T mobile is pretty good on upgrades. Did you use upgrade when getting your s3? When you last upgrade?
