    Like many others, my screen cracked within the first two weeks of usage.

    I sent my phone in to determine cause of the crack which was not covered. Estimated repair was to cost $190. I opted to have the phone shipped back to be repaired at a phone company near my house who will replace the screen for a lower price.

    Will having a repair company replace the screen void the warranty on my phone? Do I need to contact a specific authorized provider in order to keep the existing manufacturer's warranty?

    Thank you for your time and help.

    If the screen crack was not covered by warranty (the cause was determined to be physical damage), then the warranty is already void.
