I cracked phone screen but it still works, should I get it fixed?

 

If you’re like me your cellphone probably has a cracked phone screen but it’s still working. It seems every phone I own the screen eventually cracks. I used to get it fixed right away if I had the money but sometimes I never bothered. Nowadays I wait until the phone stops working even if I can afford to fix it. I think the best thing to do is keep a second phone handy just in case.

Recently I had to go on a business trip and had cracked phone screen so I took a chance and didn’t fix it. This was a bad decision because the first day into my trip it stopped working all together. I couldn’t find a place that would fix it so I missed a couple of really important calls. From this point on if my cellphone screen is cracked and I have to leave town I’m going to fix it first.

 

What do you do when you cracked phone screen?

 

My friend said he always gets his phone fixed as soon as possible. One time he used his phone for a while with a broken screen only to get it wet. When he tried to get it fixed the shop couldn’t get it to turn on again and he lost the use of the phone. This was a real bummer because he didn’t back it up and he lost all of his data. This is probably my biggest fear with my cellphone, losing my data.

I guess there is no definite answer how long a cracked screen will keep working. It could work for a day or weeks, even months before it stops working. I keep my data backed up regularly so I can gamble a little if my screen is broken.
I guess if the cost to fix my broken screen is cheap enough than fixing right away is the smarted choice. I try to keep a case on it these days and that really helps.
