Back in 2009 I had got in to an argument with my girlfriend and we were in a parking lot around 1:45 am. I got so mad that I Flung my phone face down in the air and it cracked. Now I had a G1 and I've Had my share of near misses with it break so i figure whatever, I was drunk. lol. well needless to say it cracked and look like a spider web. a pice of the glass was actually missing from it. I was waiting on a replacement phone through warranty and I toast because they dont handle broken phones. well I sent it in anyway. lol. I took the soft packaging out of the box and crmbled the box a bit to make it look lilke there was a shipping issue incase they wanted to blame me. I never saw the OOW charge on my bill so it seems as if they believed it. I walked out the situation with a perfectly good phone at no charge.

I was helping my girlfriends 8yr old daughter into Burger King to play in the play area when out of nowhere this guy on a bike pulls in and rushes in before us, knocking the phone out of my hand and onto the floor. I even had a Zagg invisibleshield on it and it didn't protect the cracking of the screen. I hope his Whopper was worth it.
I bought a screen on eBay and had a friend fix it, only to have him mess up the microphone on the phone. So after all that the phone is useless and I had to buy a phone outright to use.

I was wearing my phone in a hip holster and bumped it when walking past a piece of furniture. The screen was broken. I took the phone to a cellular repair shop and they put in a screen they had from a used non-working phone.

I actually never broke a sreen on any of my phones, BUT my mom has, she dropped my FIRST iPhone that I bought(iPhone 2g) while trying to get it from my lil bro. So I had an upgrade anyways and got the 3gs when it came out and took my old one to the apple, store, got it fixed and sold it to my friend. ALSO I had a close call with my GS3 this morning!! Dropped it from my couch, had a screen protector and d30 hard case , but it popped off on impact then skid on the floor its corners are scratched!! So I went to the store and made them give me a new case. My gf's iPhone 4s is currently broken though. Needs a fix!!

ACTUALLY I used WERX to replace my IPHONE 3gs. Lol, I totally forgot!! They are awesome and really fast. And have a warranty and everything. Better than doing it yourself and messing it up, probably cheaper too!!!

I never broke one, but i did have a BB touch and a peanut butter cup in my pocket, and I forgot about them while I was cutting the grass and when I went to pull my phone out, there was chocolate and peanut butter under the screen so when I type on it it just squished out. Took it apart and cleaned it up, work great till I upgraded to a droid x.

Never broke my screen but I would attempt to fix it myself.

I shattered my screen on my Samsung GS2 by dropping it on the floor. I ordered a replacement screen and fixed it myself.

•Have you ever broken the screen of your phone and what did you do to fix it?
I was leaving the gym riding my motorcycle and I had just got on and hit the first intersection. I came to a stop and forgot that my iphone 4 s was on my lap. It skipped out into the intersection, thank God no cars hit it. Long story short my phone did a spiderman and I stopped at the first ATT store I could find and bought a full otterbox case and kept it in it for almost a yr because it was holding the front screen together. eventually the slide to open stopped working so I had to use the ear piece to answer and make calls. I went prolly 4 months not being able to see text messages. then my upgrade was available to get a new phone.

I broke my original Evo 4G's screen, but it was only a month before I was eligible to upgrade, so I toughed it out.

I broke an iPod screen once, and sold it to buy a new one.

I broke my screen the night before my wedding. I got a little upset and snapped the screen in half, so I couldn't get any calls or texts from anyone or anything to do with the wedding. The bad part was that we had 450 guests and some needed to get in contact with me.
Luckily, in San Jose, there was a place called CPR (cell phone repair) that fixed the screen in 1 day!
Now, when I get upset, I hide my phone!

I have never broken my screen. My Droid X (1) has been relentless with taking the hits.
