Broke the display on my N75. Had it sent in to get it repaired. That was a tough $100 to swallow.

i dropped my phone on the corner and it spiderwebbed out. My screen protector kept the screen on for awhile but I finally gave in and did an insurance claim through asurian and got a replacement device. Then I had to redo all my phone settings!! UGHHHH

I have broken my HTC Thunderbolt screen. It's the only phone I didn't sell and it's sitting here as a remote camera to watch my dog when I'm not home. :-) But recently I watched some videos replacing screens and I want to find a reliable source and get a screen from them. I compared a few websites, but didn't order yet.

Slightly cracked a screen once, put a screen shield on and it held up though.

I put a big dent in the plastic resistive touch screen of my old feature phone. But since I've gotten a smartphone, I've been much more careful.

I once broke the screen on my iPhone 3GS. I tore it apart and replaced it with a kit from china. It never worked as well as when it was new...:(

I have broken the screen on my phone twice. Just recently had the screen of my iPhone 4S broken. I guess that counts as 3 times. I got the 2 problems before fixed by buying a new phone and the second time fixing the screen myself. I havent got around fixing the iPhone myself because i want to avoid damaging the inside.

No, so far I've yet to break the screen on one of my phones.

Yes, I've broken the screen on my phone. I just took it in to a repair shop.

My Iphone 4s currently has a crack across its screen. And what I did to fix it was...well enter in this contest :D

I busted my HTC Inspire's screen with an Otterbox Defender case on it by tossing it over my shoulder and having it shatter on a plastic tag to demonstrate to a customer why they need a case (screen crackage was not intended, 2 guesses on whether or not the guy got the case :P)
I kept it in its box for about a month waiting to get the cash together to purchace a new screen when luck would have it, a customer with an upgrade ready had a red Inspire that was busted but had its screen intact! About an hour or so later I had my good ol' Inspire back up and running as good as new! Bonus as its now a combo red and brownish-grey Inspire and looks cooler in my opinion
moral of the story, forget warranties: fix it yourself!

I had a LG Voyager and the clamshell hinge of the phone broke, so technically the screen was broken. Since the front of the screen worked perfectly fine, I just kept it together using a rubber band.

I have been lucky. My phones have been dropped many times but never had a broken screen.

Broke the screen to an iPhone and replaced it with an eBay replacement. Broke the flex cable for the digitizer the first time and had to order another screen. Got it right the second time, LOL.

I've broken the front of my iPhone screen and I went to the Apple Store to get it replaced for $149 :(

Yes, I just broke my iPhone screen earlier today. At this point I am going to probably have to go to a cell phone repair shop at one of the local malls.

I had a shop repair it, for almost as much as the phone cost me.

I broke my iphone screen when I lap launched out of my car. I swear I wasn't texting and driving. To get it fixed I brought it to a kiosk in the mall where there repair iphones. cost me like $120.

I used to have an Iphone 3G a year or two back and the way I broke that screen was when I was going to use the bathroom. I had it plugged in because it was going to die and when I sat down, the phone slipped out of my hand and swung right into the door! The screen cracked very badly and the only thing I could think of to fix it was to put some clear box tape over it so that I wont cut myself on the parts of the screen that were sticking up lol.

I broke the screen on my AT&T Sony Xperia A after throwing it at the wall. Having already switched to Verizon and getting a Razr Maxx, it was no big loss- the hunk of junk barely worked anyway.

My daughter has broken her phone screen and we ended up paying the $50 deductible to get a replacement phone

I had my HTC Evo for over a year with a screen protector on it and a body glove cover on it. One day I decided to take it off and the screen protector came off also. While i was driving somewhere I sad it in my lap and for got about it and when I went to get out of the car it fell on it's face and cracked. It had craked so bad that I almost couldn't use it because it was starting to cut the tips of my fingers so I put another screen protector over it to make it usuable for the time being. I never did get the screen fixed.

Put in for a warranty replacement after accidently sitting on the phone not realizing i had stuck the phone in my back pocket. after that I bought an otter box case with clip to prevent future damages.

But it was a scarry moment for me!
