Replace Your iPhone Screen to Maximize Profit

by Jhon Smith Author
If you are looking to sell an iPhone with a broken screen, repairing or replacing the glass before making a sale can help you maximize your profit. There are several websites that will allow you to search for the kind of iPhone model you have, find its current value and sell it back to the website at a fair price. You can even find the value of your iPhone by factoring in any screen damages. This can help you accurately price your phone by seeing the difference between a fixed and a broken iPhone.

For instance, an iPhone 5 with 16GB of memory is usually valued around $400, while the same phone with a cracked screen will only be valued around $75 to $90. That's over $300 difference. It might be worthwhile to fix the screen before you sell, as you could make over $300 more for a phone in good condition. Check out your options when it comes to repairing or replacing your cracked screen.

Repair it yourself
If you're comfortable with tinkering with electronics, you can find an iPhone 5 screen repair kit for about $30 online. This means you could spend $30 on the repair and be able to  sell your iphone for a much bigger profit margin. Should you have difficulty replacing the screen yourself, you might be able to find a friend or family member to help you, even if it requires a small fee.

Send it in for a repair
Either look locally for a repair shop that handles delicate electronics, or look into one of the many websites that will fix your broken iPhone at a cheap price. Most will diagnose your problem, make the necessary changes to fix it, and then send it back to you. The average charge for this type of service is $35, including shipping, to repair a broken or cracked screen. This is another investment that will allow you to sell your iPhone at the maximum price, and you'll still make your money back on the repair.

Replace the screen entirely
iPhone screen replacement usually costs about $100 on Amazon with shipping excluded. This can save you time replacing the screen and if you'e not handy with tools, you'll know it's being done professionally. If you want to sell your iPhone for the best price available, it's best to make sure the phone is in the best condition possible. Even with a full screen replacement, you'll still make a profit when you sell.
