I've broken more phones than I wish I did!
At the end of 2010, I got a new Samsung Captivate from AT&T. This was my first smartphone. Two months later, I broke it because it dropped 2 feet in a school-type binder!
Okay, so then in March, I used someone else's upgrade on my family account to get the 2-year contract price for a new Motorola Atrix 4G from BestBuy. I ended up dropping that on a concrete floor, and the screen pixels wouldn't light, but it responded tio touch for half an hour. Then it was dead. Good thing I bought the $5 monthly insurance plan from BestBuy! I got a new Motorola Atrix 4G (no deductable :-), and happily walked out of the store with a new working phone. At the end of August 2011, it had a software bug while changing wallpapers, and froze. Good thing I still had the BestBuy $5 montly insurance! When I went in to the BestBuy to get a new atrix, they said they had no more, and had to give me a "comparable model". I ended up with the HTC Inspire 4G. Everyone here knows the Inspire an =d Atrix are completely different! After a while, in June of 2012, I decided that I wanted to fix the screen on the Samsung Captivate, which I had held on to this whole time. I went to a locally owned Tech shop, and they said they would fix the screen for $130. If I had known about the Werx Android Smartphone Screen Replacement kit, I would have saved $30 (or more) and my time from going to the Tech shop!
Moral of the story is: Don't drop your smartphone, but if you do, use Werx!
P.S: I know more people than I wish that have iPhones, so they can have the screen package from me as a gift!

Have you ever broken the screen of your phone and what did you do to fix it?

I went to a local mall where they offered the service of replacing my iPhone screen for $100 because Sprint and Apple told me that they would not cover the broken screen.

My first blackberry tour had it's screen shatter for no reason. 2 days after upgrading to the phone, I was driving with it in my pocket and it went. I didn't know what to do and I realized I didn't purchase insurance for it. I had to go back to verizon and swap for a new one for 50 dollars. Not a good day.

Fortunately, I have yet to broken any screens on any of the smartphones I owned so far. Hopefully, I will never break any screens in the future.

I have only smashed one screen and luckily it was years ago on a flip phone and it was the outside screen. I hope I never smash my iphone screen.

Broke my g1 screen years ago. Fixed it using YouTube, an online supply store and some 3m adhesive. It lived a long fruitful life afterwards

A week after having my Epic Touch I let my kid play with my phone and he decided to use it as a baseball. Luckily I had insurance for it so I just had to wait a week for a replacement.

To date I have only broken one screen and luckily the insurance replaced the phone. I would have rather just replaced the screen, but I had no idea how to do that back then. I hope that this is headphone and screen worthy!

I haven't broke a screen on my phone yet. The beauty of having a case! If I did, I would probably go take it to this place in town and have them fix it!

In all my years, I've never broken a single screen to this day (I'm probably going to jinx myself with this post). I always place my phone in a sturdy case and screen protector from day 1. Apart from that, however, I did "baptize" a slider once (literally), but it resurrected on the third day, only to die for good a year later.

My screen on my Rezound broke about a month ago. Haven't had the money to fix it. It's the first time that I have ever broke a screen. The headphones would be awesome because my phone comes with the Beats audio system.
