repair it and put it down to experience! what age is he?

sell it n buy new one for 50 off here

tell him to find somewhere else to live :whistling:

It can probably be repaired but I doubt it would be economically feasible as the screen isn't cheap and there's the labour charge to fit it as well. It's likely to be quicker, easier and of similar cost to buy another one.

My advice is, dont go rock climbing with a mobile phone in your pocket ;-)

15 and may well not make 16 if his Dad finds out. Would think it expensive to repair.!!!

omg what was he thinking! i think as above it might be just as easy to buy a new one or just tell his dad and dont repair or renew it and let him learn his lesson i,m afraid.

Yes I agree, but we have been here b4. The last nokia ended up on the bottom of a river after canoeing. :w00t:

what about claiming on your house contents insurance ?

Exactly, it's not as if he could pick it up to answer it halfway up a rock face.

The excess on the policy would no doubt be over the cost of a new one.

do what i do take the blame say you knocked it of table or something like that it all ways works for us :thumbsup:

If he does have an active lifestyle and wants to keep a phone on him (which is entirely understandable with potentially dangerous activities) then it may be worth considering investing in a toughened phone such as the Sonim XP1.

and then ds is not taking any responsibilities for his actions? no bring him to the real world not everything is or should be handed to you he really needs to for his sake no one elses learn how to treat things and manage money also

A couple of weeks with no phone might teach him to look after it,

trust me they learn because i punish them myself (but make child pay for replacement when they can) its just easier soimetimes not getting oh involved, mine do take responsibility for their own actions and their are in the real world

what i meant is yes take the blame but make child pay for replacement without oh knowing

i just thought wouldnt child been insured on this trip couldnt you claim from insurance
