    I dropped my phone while stepping out of my car and it hit the pavement just right (or just wrong) that the lower right side of my 920 screen shattered. I have a few different ideas but am not sure how they will affect the resale value of the phone. The phone is on AT&T but will be carrier unlocked once I obtain a T-Mobile SIM card.

    1. Use the phone as is until my contract is up in November when I can upgrade.

    2. Buy a replacement screen. There are three different screens on eBay. One has no logos on it. The second has just the Nokia logo and the third has the Nokia and AT&T logos. I like the idea of just the Nokia logo but will that hurt the resale value? The cost for the screens are as follows: No logos = $80, Nokia Logo = $90, Nokia and AT&T logos = $100.

    3. Buy a cyan back housing as well as the Nokia branded replacement screen. The phone will not be carrier branded, SIM unlocked and cyan. This option will cost about $140.

    4: Sell the phone as is on eBay and hope it goes for at least $150 like most of the shattered screen Nokia 920s are selling at. Save that money and put it towards the 41mp phone.

    What are your opinions? Thanks!

    I say 2. if you like the color of your 920 as it is or 3. if you prefer the cyan housing, because $140 isn't a bad price for that and a new screen!

    My wife is making me go with option 5: do nothing and live with a cracked screen.
