Be honest.  Have you ever used a phone with a cracked screen?  About a week ago I was trying to carry too much at once from the car into our shop, and I sent my iPhone for a dive + 10-foot skid across the parking lot.  A week later, I’m still using my phone with its cracked screen.  Why?

I’ve got a protection plan with Verizon, but the deductible is a couple hundred bucks.  (If I was out of warranty, I’d have been calling Rob the Phone Doctor.)  But no.  Being a technician, I thought it would be a good idea to go the self-repair route.  So I contacted iCracked and got one of their self-repair kits.  Last weekend I performed the install, only to find after fully assembling my phone that the screen iCracked sent me was DEFECTIVE!  Ugh.  That left my phone in an unusable state; no texts, no calls, nuttin.  So the next evening, I “fixed” my phone by doing the iCracked repair again – this time putting my cracked screen right back on the phone.  So now it works, barely, and it’s a mess.

See?  Even a trained technician can have a very bad day with tech.

Your scenario may not be like mine.  But if you’ve ever used your phone with a cracked screen – you know who you are, I’ve seen you at Costco and at the gas station and in Publix – then you’ve engaged in unprotected text, a very risky activity.
