    Hello,
    Was wondering if anyone could help my sister slammed the car door shut while her iPhone was in her pocket & the door whacked off her and bounced open, she then took her phone out her pocket to find the screen smashed it's only 2 months old ? Would Apple fix this ?

    Call and make an appointment with a Genius at Apple. Tell them what happened. It can sometimes be hit and miss, but there have been a number of people saying that Apple did replace the entire phone. They are known to do this the first time. But I have also heard that some people haven't had that good luck. More have had it replaced free than not, if that helps.

    I have had them replace my son's iPod for this. They did it for free and the employee did mention that they would do this one time only.

    I just picked up my 4s at the local Apple store tonight. While there I showed them my 3gs with the shattered screen. They told me they can replace the screen for just $99! I almost put off buying the 4s because of that.

    I had wondered what to do with it. Every feature works perfectly, the screen is just shattered from a drop. I thought about putting it on eBay, but now I might just get it fixed and keep it for a spare.

    Took the iPhone back to Apple tonight and they wanted £200 & woulda gave a brand new iPhone, not paying that will have a look on eBay for a screen.
