Galaxy S8+ Screen Replacement Help

#1

Does anyone have the skillset and interest, or recommendation of someone/where to replace a cracked screen on a Galaxy S8+ ? It has finally become annoying and is naturally the one I didn’t put on insurance. I would love to know if repair is a thing I could make happen for less than the +$250 I was just quoted by random cell repair place.

That sounds about right price wise based on the labor hours and parts.

They sell a kit with everything including the tools but it costs more than what you were quoted.

Looks like some other places have similar kits for less money. iFixit is reputable. I don’t know anything about these folks.

I’ve had some repairs done at Smart Techs at 401 N. Central Expressway in Richardson. Same shopping strip as Kebab-n-Kurry. If you’re nearby, it’s worth giving them a shot.

VCC does a lot of this repair work at the space as a service for members.

If one buys the digitizer ($50 on amazon) then pick out a time that works for them on our calendar then as long as your a member in good standing it’s a free repair.

All that we encourage is one donates something to or volunteer for the committee,

If you bought it, and pay your phone bill(unsure if it has to be both bought & paid bill) with your credit card, the phone might be insured thru the credit card company.
At least a couple of card companies offer this benefit. You may want to check with your card company.
I’ve availed of the benefit a few times. You pay for it up front, send in your documents, and they reimburse you less deductible(I forget if tax is also reimbursed, it’s been a while).
