I think from the responses you have received, you know where I am going. Man up and roll with the punches. You dropped it, your problem. But I bet if you sell it, you will probably get almost or more of your money back from the sale. Then use that to buy a new one. BE HONEST!!! You will feel better in the end.

Yea you could return it if it wasn't damaged. You dropped it freaking live with it.

Too bad they'll see that the phone has been damaged and could have caused the problems he's trying make an excuse for.

yes and the refurb process costs money as well. parts and labor and testing for bugs, broken internals, software, etc.

obvious troll is obvious

to the OP, just tell them the truth, you may strike out, but at least you have your dignity in not lying to get a refurb phone
