I'm devastated. :( I never thought this could happen to me as I'm always so cautious with my possessions. Last night as I was leaving and outside I dropped my iPhone 4S as I was taking it out of my holster. It just slipped out of my hand as I gripped it the wrong way and it hit the side of the curb cracking the front screen. I always keep it in my Mophie battery case but this time I had my case charging and took my New Trent external battery with me instead.

I'm looking online this morning for options as I don't have any Apple protection plan. I guess I will either send it in to Apple for repairs or try to fix it myself. Sorry, I just had to vent. As you can see it is really damaged on the top corner.

If your handy with disassembly, reassembly then a screen repair is fairly easy. Most screen/digitizers, yes I'd go ahead and get the digitizer even if yours is working, never know when a screwdriver or something might slip...... But most come woth a cheap tool kit, if not it just consists of a very small torqux screwdriver(the star head ones) a tiny phillips(the + head one) and a little flat head along with a couple guitar picks.
Or try an Apple store think it's been said like 150 to 250 for them to fix a iPhone.

Only thing iPhone is missing is an expandable memory port! Come on Apple give us a microSD port already!

Go into an Apple store wearing a T-Shirt that says Apple rocks and I love iPhones. Tell the genius your phone broke and start crying.

:)

But sorry to hear about your device!

Good luck JW, let us know what route you took to get your iPhone fixed. That picture of your cracked screen damn near brings a tear to my eye.
