The touch screen on my samsung galaxy s3 just randomly stopped working. Everything else on the phone works. It started working again, but only for a few minutes until it quit again. I've tried pulling the battery, but no luck. Thanks for all of your help and input!

Take it to a Koodo boutique and they will provide warranty service or a quote on the repair if your guarantee has expired.

You could also try on Kijiji to get a price on third-party repair.

I think the reparation at this point isn't worth it anymore. It's an old phone and out of waranty repairs are expensive. Better get a new phone with that money

I've had this phone for about 8 months now, would it still be covered? Bought new from a Koodo store.

Also, if I bought a new phone, which phone in your opinion is a better buy:
Nexus 5
LG G3

If you insist on trading up to new, G3 has some wi-fi issues, Nexus 5 less so.

Do a search in the box at the top right of this page.

Features are up to you to judge value for money. Nexus 5 is unlocked, which adds a virtual $35 of value to your purchase.

Good luck.
