Remember when I showed you guys a pic of the hubs broken phone a few days ago? It was in a FebPhotoADay post…If you forgot…[because I KNOW you read the post…right?]…here’s a pic:
What to do??
First thought – Buy a new phone, no we’re not for upgrades, and yes we NEED it to be an iPhone, and no they will not sucker me into adding a line to get a discount on the phone…that’s a ripoff and a half by the time it’s said and done.
Other options – Be phoneless…who are we kidding, that’s not happening. Buy one at an online auction? No, unless you get lucky or want an outdated phone you don’t save all that much. Fix it…why didn’t we think of that before? Funny how genius ideas pop up when you see a price tag 😉
When the iPhone 4 first came out it was time for my upgrade, after having my awesome new phone for about a week a child who shall remain nameless dunked it in a 50 gal bucket of dog water…needless to say the phone crapped out…but we saved what was left of it. It always tried to turn on so I figured there might be hope….long story short…there was no hope for that phone, but hubs took the shell off it and the insides of his phone to create a [like]new, perfectly working, iPhone4…and all it cost was $5 for a kit that had the mini screwdriver needed.
