A broken smartphone screen typically equals a hefty repair fee — sometimes hefty enough to make you give up and buy a new phone.
But Sprint has a pretty sweet, albeit limited, deal for anyone with a Samsung Galaxy device with a cracked screen. The company says it will fix such devices for $49 — even if you have a contract with another carrier.
The list of eligible phones is as follows:
Samsung Galaxy S7
Samsung Galaxy S8
Samsung Galaxy S8+
Samsung Galaxy S9
Samsung Galaxy S9+
Samsung Galaxy Note 8
If you have a broken phone that’s not eligible, Sprint will take it and give you a $150 credit towards purchasing a new phone.
The deal is good, given that fixing a cracked smartphone display can sometimes cost hundreds of dollars. But, there are several caveats. First, you may have noticed that Samsung’s latest Galaxy devices, the Galaxy S10/S10+ and Note 9/9+, as well as 10/10+, aren’t included.
Also, the Galaxy phone you bring in for repair must be in working condition. Furthermore, Sprint says not every screen is repairable, and it reserves the right to reject any phone for repair. Only one phone can be fixed per customers. And, finally, the offer is only good until Feb. 9, 2020.
Still, if you have a phone that fits the description and you’re looking for a cheap way to repair it, Sprint’s offer is worth a try. You can find a list of Sprint’s repair locations here.
