Samsung Galaxy S3 Amber brown broken screen

So being a numpty, i've dropped my phone within a week of having it :/

No insurance because I didn't really get around to that. The screen is cracked but in full working order. I'm trying to avoid taking it to Samsung/ phones4you direct because ive been warned of the major cost. So I will get someone to fix it for me.

The problem I have is that nobody can find a replacement in amber brown colour. Plenty of white and blue but no Amber Brown.

What should I do? Cut my losses and pay the extra, wait for the parts to be available or does anyone know a place that stocks them. Help much appreciated

Not to sound like an asshole, but you kinda got what you had coming to you. A phone is an investment these days, and if you're not protecting your investment and you break the phone, you should be prepared to deal with the consequences.

You really have no choice but to go get that shit fixed or replaced


Oh and where did you score an Amber Brown version? Is that a real galaxy s3?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Amber brown broken screen

You can always talk to the wireless company or wherever you bought the phone and explain your situation (the sooner the better maybe they can make an exception for the first time). Another thing you can do is fix it yourself, buy a kit on Ebay and go for it. You can always try local place that fixes phones look around check your phone book or google it. Also pay the up cost fee to fix it with the maker aka Samsung maybe they will give you a free replacement or a discount to fix it. When you end up fixing it if your not going to get insurance invest in a case its the most important thing after you have your device. You are going to end up dropping the phone sooner or later no one is perfect thats the first thing I did when I bought my phone I wasn't going to use it until I had that case in hand to put it on (buy a descent case do research to get the best case for your phone its one of the best investments you will ever do).

S2 screens used to be from 80-100 to buy but i dunno much s3 ones are, if you were to do it yourself its quite tricky as you have to heat up the old screen

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Amber brown broken screen

I'm not sure what the system is like when taking out insurance on a mobile phone but surely there's some way of doing it without letting the insurers actually see your phone? Then once you've taken the insurance out, wait a week or so and then say you broke your screen and try to claim and get it fixed.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Amber brown broken screen

some carriers and insurance providers have limits on how long you can have the phone, and then they refuse to insure them after that period of time. But if your phone is in window, it doesnt hurt to try and get it insured via phone call.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Amber brown broken screen

Unfortuately I think if i do take insurance out now, they will talk to my phone provider and catch me out. I really want to get a replacement screen and get a third party to fix it for me. I just find it unusual that I cant find parts anywhere.

I won't chance fixing it myslef. I have two left hands..
