    Just get the phone fixed and go about your business, unless you're looking for a reason to get one of the new iPhones.

    Do they let you turn in a broken phone though?

    If it's relatively the same price to get it fixed versus upgrade, why fix it when you can get something better at no extra cost or penalty? I don't see the logic in that.

    From what I've read (I don't know first hand as I'm not on that plan and have never broken a phone), but I believe it has to be in working condition, and while the screen technically might work, I don't think it would qualify.

    The OP stated that he was on T-mobile's network and was considering upgrading via their Jump plan in lieu of getting the phone fixed. I'm not with T-mobile, but I doubt they are going to allow the OP to trade in a damaged iPhone for a brand new one and updated model. Then again, I could be mistaken. Anyway, the better option, in my opinion, is the OP's other consideration -- get the phone fixed and then finish paying it off before upgrading.

    Right, I too believe that he will in fact not be able to trade in the phone, but depending upon how long he's had it, it's possible that the price without a trade-in could be comparable to that of fixing his broken phone, in which case I can't see the logic in shelling out the same sum of money for a lesser phone (the lesser phone being his current iPhone) versus upgrading at the same cost. However, if it is significantly more money to upgrade versus getting it fixed, then I'm with you all the way - get it fixed. I'm simply saying that if it's the same price, an upgrade seems more logical to me.

    According to T-Mobile, your phone must be in "good working condition" when you trade it in. I seriously doubt your phone qualifies.

    Cool thanks for seeing what I mention wasn't sure if I wrote it right and i was thinking it probably would be better to get it fixed then pay it off did not really think about the part of T-Mobile taking my phone the way it is

    Exactly that's what I was thinking if it is the same price then to just upgrade probably my best bet would be to call T-Mobile and see what they say

    The OP will not be able to turn in a cracked screen iPhone for Jump -- it must pass a in-store 3-point inspection which includes no damage (broken screen)

    Just to clarify I think you can get it fixed anywhere and then take it in for JoD upgrade -- I don't think T-Mobile is going to know whether or not you had it fixed at Apple or possibly saved some money elsewhere

    Yeah they told me they don't care where I get it fixed at but when i looked at the other places there more expensive for my iPhone 6 Plus so gonna get it fixed at Apple might just get it paid off first then get a new one not sure yet now

    Money isn't everything. If you're environmentally conscious, it makes sense to repair the phone as it is less wasteful than buying a new one.

    Well yeah that as well I've got a little less then half off on this phone so figured might as well fix it and pay it off especially since I need to fix it before I can use T-Mobile jump does not make sense to pay to fix it trade it in and then make a payment to get the 6s plus
