My wife dropped her phone on cement and cracked the screen. When she went to the Apple store they told her to purchase a new phone, or a referbished phone for $200. Anyone have any suggestions? Cant the phone be sent back and a new screen put on the same phone?

Thanks for all your help!

Yes it can but i think that costs 250. Buy the refurb. They are as good as if not better than new

yeah getting a replacement screen is costly and a hassle.

i would just live with the cracked screen until the new iPhone comes out, or go ahead and upgrade to the 16gig, depending on my money situation at the time.

the best thing for her to do would probably be to just get a refurb

If it's still working, live with it and wait for the next generation iPhone.

If it's not, buy the $200 refurb.

iPhone repairs are $250 and a long wait.

All signs point to some time this year, but we don't know anything more than that - also don't know whether it will just be the announcement (with the phone following 6 months later as it did last year) or the phone will actually literally be available.
