    So my phone fell the other day and the only thing that broke was the camera lens. All outside glass is intact. I would like to trade my phone in to get the XR in October. So my question is... if I pay to replace the camera (with an outside vendor), does it void my ability to trade it in to Apple/Verizon? Am I better off not fixing it and trying to trade it in as is? Is there another site I would get better trade in value? Looking for advice! Thanks in advance. :)

    I looked up the trade in value of my 7 on Apple and they are offering $200 for a working iPhone in good condition. At another 3rd party, the cash value was $160.

    Can always get a repair quote and go from there. My guess is fixing it won't be worth it though. I mean, if trade in is $200 and to repair it is $200, then it's a waste for sure.
