Ouch. Take it in to Apple - they almost always replace them for free. In the unlikely case that they charge you for this or if you've already had them replace the screen for free in the past, the backplate replacement is only $29. Good luck and post back!

Another option is to have them send you a shipping box. The turnaround time is really fast. If you ship it on a Monday, you'll probably have it back by Thursday.

Or you could just order the backplate online and swap it out yourself. I've heard it's really easy to do and the backplate is inexpensive.

She posted three iPhone emojis. They show up if you view the thread from the phone, but they just look like three broken images if you view it on your computer.

go to walmart, and buy a wrapsol kit, its a silicone type of film and pretty thick, so the broken glass will not cut the film, if you like tht cracked look, the film will keep it all in place. Full kit comes with front, back and around the frame film. I use my iPhone with a full kit, love it! dropped a couple times.

or you can just go to http://www.colorware.com/p-236-iphone-4.aspx

and customize it to your liking =)

i thought about doing this but i didn't feel like wasting money knowing that fact that I can just probably get another iPhone with the money i spend to color it.lol
