Default ATT Warranty Inspection, After Glass Replacement....

So, I've got an s4 (still under manufacturers warranty) that I dropped and cracked the screen. Replaced the front glass perfectly, works fine now. However I'd rather not have a phone I tore apart so I was curious on how stringent ATT is on the phones coming back to them under warranty.
How thoroughly do they check the phone when they get it in their hands at the warehouse?

I was thinking of replacing my screen as well.. was it an easy process? Do you recommend any videos/tools to use?

That makes me feel a little bit better. But I'm not sure if you're talking about a phone under the additional warranty against physical damage or one under the manufacturers warranty against phone defects. I'm trying to get mine replaced under the phone defect warranty by saying the screen no longer functions properly.

It was tedious to say the least. And you'll never get the phone to work as well as when it's new from the factory, even if you try and use the LOCA UV bonded glue. It's just not going to be the same as the original bonding.

I've done the screen before, it just plan sucks. The plastic is very brittle around the lcd.and it will break most of the time. If you need a screen and your on mdl, buy one that is original and assembled. If your on mf3 or above just pay the $200 deductible and be done, because a original screen is $200 anyways. If you want to try the loca glue route I will advise you not to. The heat gun, temp gun,uv light, will almost cost as much as a good screen, or replacement phone from assurion.

Instead of committing insurance fraud (not allowed on XDA) you could sell the device you admit works properly and use the money to buy a new one, or you can suck it up and use your flipping phone that works perfectly fine.
