Yes, I tried to fix it but ended up giving up before I got too far and couldn't put it back together and just got a replacement.

Had some close calls. I was lucky - the screen survived.

I haven't broken the phone on my screen before, but I manage a store that specializes in repairing cracked screens on smart phones. I'm elbows deep in broken phone every day!

I sold it on ebay for parts and bought a new one of course! No use crying over spilt milk. The effort to fix it would be too difficult and nerve-racking! It's always a GOOD excuse to upgrade XD

My brother broke the screen on my GS3 and I still haven't fixed it.

If I do win the iPad, I'll give it to my parents as a little gift.

Broke my G1 screen a while ago, fixed it with some YouTube and supplies from an online store. Still works great now :-)

I have broken the screen of my phone once. I used the warranty to replace the screen.

Broke my screen walking and texting (ran into wall... don't judge me :-)). Had to use insurance- $125 fee on top of the $6.99 fee per month that I'm already paying. That really stunk.

Have not broken a screen yet, but if I do any time soon, it's because of my entry in this contest.

When I had the old Windows Mobile phones I also had the Sprint Premium insurance and I would just go in to the store and get it replaced. One time I broke my HTC Touch Pro screen and, since they were discontinued, they gave me an HTC Touch Pro 2. Now that I have an iPhone my screen has broken just once and since I didn't purchase Apple Care I simply went to a local shop and they replaced the screen for less than half of what Apple was going to charge me.

I've never broken my screen, but it's always a lingering concern in the back of my mind. As the phones get larger screens, and now tablets as well, the likelihood of a screen cracking or shattering grows. The ability to fix or replace a screen on these touch based devices would be a huge relief of stress. This is especially true considering how expensive these devices are, and how enormously dependent we've become on them.

I broke myscreen and repaired it myself, when all was said and done I spent almost as much onthe repairs as it would have been to buy a new phone.

I'm pretty safe with my iDevices. As such, none have been broken... I can still be in the giveaway though yes? :D

Well I actually ran over it with my car. It still worked even though the screen was cracked (one of those military phones - woohoo) and since renewal time was near, I waited and renewed my contract and got another phone.

Yes I broke my old Samsung Moment's screen (seems like a dinosaur compared to the Android phones of today) and had Sprint fix it for me. Yeah, it cost some money but the touch screen is vital to the phone. Soon after, I switched to a BlackBerry.. I wouldn't necessarily call it an upgrade!

How did I break it? Simple. I was walking out the mall, on the phone (but paying attention!) and I was pushed by a small child while he was running into the mall. I dropped my phone from about my ear height (5'11'') and the screen cracked in the upper right-hand corner. To his parent' delight, I did become overly frustrated or anything. It was just one of those 'life goes on' moments. HAHA "Moment." No pun intended.

The crack didn't make the phone obsolete but it was annoying enough that I HAD to get it fixed. ...and that's my story :D

Never on my phone! (Knock on wood) but I broke the screen in my 4th Gen Ipod touch while GROCERY SHOPPING!?!? It is not fixed :(

I've broken my Samsung Fascinate (Galaxy S) after asking a girl to go to prom with me. I guess I was excited enough to drop my phone, which is rare. I ordered a replacement screen from eBay and tried to do it myself, but did something wrong and broke the phone :(

One time my friend, jokester that he is, took my phone and looked up a picture of broken glass which he then to a screenshot of and saved it as my lock screen background. Boy was I in for a scare on that one!

I've never broken the screen of a phone! Which is surprising because I'm a huge klutz!

No I have never cracked my phone screen. From the moment I have purchased my many cell phones and smart phones, I purchased a case to protect it from being damaged. I also always buy insurance on my phones just in case.
