I broke my phone

New Delhi, India
May 22, 2017 9:20pm CST
To the greatest horror of my life my phone fell on the ground and broke off yesterday. I'm still unable to come out of the shock. Though I have left it at the repair shop it is really hard that it will get repaired. I'm still hoping for a miracle to happen. An added expense of a new phone is the last thing I would have wanted at this time.

I hope it will still gets repaired. My phone always slips my hand to the concrete floor and it happened a lot of times already. Thankfully, it is still good. Though I noticed that it would sometimes automatically shut off. But I am bearing with it, because my plan will still expire or can be renewed on November. By then , I can already get a new free phone.

@amitkokiladitya I am contracted with the phone service provider for 2 years for an amount per month. They will give me a new phone that comes with the plan. You can choose from their array of phones for that amount of plan. If after two years you renew the contract, you will again choose a new phone that comes with the plan.

Wish you luck as I have seen some dropping phones and picking them up without even a scratch. A strong outer case helps - siva

I know the feeling. My son broke my new phone (it was just 2 month old), last to last week. It is still to be repaired as the phone is comparatively new in market and they are finding it difficult to get the spare part so soon

This is real upsetting. Getting parts is difficult. My phone might have the same problem

@shaynas TRUE...I really wish yours gets fixed as well.. How much was it for?

You are right, the phone itself is already too expensive.

@amitkokiladitya Some young people told me that there is one way to prevent this sort of mishap: to get a type of case which has thicker and slightly higher edges. If the phone happens to fall down, those edges would absorb the fall, thus protecting the glass surface. (Those cases are always about $5-$10 more expensive.)

I am so sorry to hear that. I know how you feel. My phone ever dropped to the water and then it didn't work. It was quite frustrating and brought so many inconvenience. Did you have the cellphone case? If you have it, at least there will be less damage for your cellphone.

@amitkokiladitya Oh... This is a problem. Actually my new phone dropped a few weeks ago but fortunately it has the case and a screen guard. Only the screen guard broke and I am lucky. I just needed to remove the old screen guard and replace a new one. It is easy and it doesn't cost much.
