Most of us don’t want to go to the store when our cell phone is broken and we are out of warranty. We might not even know how it happened! But, let’s pretend there is no warranty and you dropped your phone. Don’t worry, there is a quick and easy fix without having to go anywhere special or wait for someone less able than you.
A lot of people have been recommending using vinegar as an option for fixing your cracked screen due to its alkaline nature which helps keep the curing process going at a faster pace. You can also use toothpaste and baking soda, but these are both more likely to leave a residue and could end up destroying the screen.
So you have dropped your phone. Maybe it was in your pocket or purse, maybe you don’t even recall dropping it. What happens is the screen will get smashed if there is any pressure on the screen itself because of impact or whatnot. The glass may also crack and break apart at some point inside of the phone.
To fix the phone, you will need some isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol is a very strong disinfectant, and it has a low percentage of water in it so you can use it for cleaning things like electronics.
You are going to want to clean the area where you dropped your phone to try and get most of the glass shards out before attempting this step. You will then want to put the screen protector back on your phone. Then apply about half an inch of alcohol onto a cotton swab or paper towel and wipe over the entire surface of the screen. Let it sit for 15 minutes (while you get what you need). This allows it time to dry while your alcohol evaporates off.
The trick is that there will be some alcohol left on the screen, so you will have to apply more alcohol over it. So at this point, you need to put more alcohol on a cloth or paper towel, and wipe over the entire surface of the screen (including around any cracks). Let it sit for 15 minutes. At this point, you should be able to lift the edge of your phone’s case and see a shiny screen again. You are done!
You might want to clean out a couple spots where some debris remains by getting an alcohol wipe and wiping it over the area. This is a fairly strong chemical solution so use caution around your eyes and skin.

5. Remove any extra tape or stickers that may have been placed over your camera lens or flash (if you have one).
6. Place the battery in a jar or tube of rice, if possible. If this is not possible, find a pill bottle with good ventilation.
7. Cover the battery or jar with an old pillowcase, sheet of plastic wrap or piece of plastic grocery bag.
8. Discard it promptly in a garbage can as soon as you are finished charging it.
9. Set your phone’s reset switch to factory settings and make sure that you have charged it fully (the charge should be depleted).

11. If there is any problem with the phone, contact your manufacturer as soon as possible to find out if they can repair it.
12. If, however, everything works fine after that, then you should be good to go! 13. Do check for any signs of liquid damage by opening all of your ports or openings on the phone and leave it open for a couple of days to allow the water trapped inside to evaporate (if present).
