Oops I Did It Again

I first got an iphone, then I sort of cracked the screen a little, now I completely shattered another screen!

….yet it somehow still works perfectly.

Even though I’ve cracked two…I’ve never used a case or screen protector and I don’t treat it special…so considering the abuse this thing goes through it has held up amazingly well.

How did I break it?  It involved running and texting at the same time.

Well, luckily it still works perfectly and screen replacements are only $99!


UPDATE: 4-15-2010
I express shipped myself an iPhone 3GS glass and digitizer kit from eBay to replace the screen myself….mistake.

My shattered screen made the whole removal process take a long time, plus I ALSO cracked the LCD screen behind the glass in the process!  I had to get it repaired for $120 at a cell repair place (simply replacing the glass in the first place would’ve only cost $89).

    LOVE the shirt. Maybe Oprah needs to start a do not run and text movement as an addendum to her current don’t text & drive movement.

      HAHAHA! I think in a little while I’ll venture out of iPhone space as other phones start to really kick ass.

      Currently I still think iPhone is the best (although I do have some annoyances with having to use iTunes for EVERYTHING).

    You can send your iPhone back to Apple using the advanced replacement program. They send you a new phone and you send your old one back in the same packaging. A deposit of 500 is necessary but you will get it back as long as your phone is returned to Apple. When it’s returned, they’ll likely charge you $199 because yours is so broken and not covered under warranty. If you call Apple and complain (Don’t take no for an answer) you can get that fee dropped. Apple has the power to drop any/all fees and they will if you don’t back down. I know this doesn’t help you now but there’s always a chance it will happen again. I’m on my 3rd iPhone in a year.
