Should I tell my parents that I cracked my phone all over the place?

I dropped my phone on the pavement earlier today this is my second phone have broken this school year. I have the Samsung galaxy s 3. The whole screen is just cracked. Should I tell my parents or just wait for the week to go by and make some excuse up? Any advice?

Im guessing they paid for it. Wouldnt you want to know if the situation was reversed? You should tell them. Be honest.

Maybe you should invest in an otter box and until then use your s3 with the cracked screen until the s4 is out.

Im pretty sure you should, you might have warranty to replace the screen free.

You should tell them the truth but don't buy a new one, or just buy an old fashioned one. Or maybe the crack can be repaired.

Hopefully your parents were smart enough to get the insurance on the phone. Replacing it should not be a problem that way. Suggest you talk to them about it, then get a case to protect your new phone from this.

Might as well tell them up front and maybe they have a warranty on the phone and ask them to get you a cover that will help to protect it . I hope this helps and good luck

Even though I love my phone without a case I put it on to protect it and only take it off when I'm not walking around outside or in a place where it is really likely to break. I'd tell your parents about it. They may have put insurance on it and are able to get it replaced.
