No I have never broken my screen on my phone, but if I did I would freak out and instinctively buy a new one

When ever a screen is broken i just talk to the insurance company, but I didn't realize there was anything like the Werx system. That is a lot cheaper and I wish I would have known about this earlier. I have to check out the website to find out if they handle tablets also.

I took my old phone to a electronics repair shop and they replaced the screen for about $80 only to find out that they swapped out the buttons.

No I haven't broken my screen before. I guess I have been extremely lucky so far. I would probably be heart broken if I cracked my screen on my brand new phone or tablet.

Broke the screen of an HTC Droid Eris. I simply used Scotch Tape (yes that is correct, Scotch Tape) for about a week until I could upgrade. :)

In the past, I have broken my phone's screen and went to amazon.com to find a replacement screen, where I replaced it myself.

No, I'venever broken a screen. But if that was to happen, I'd just buy one of those replacement kits and fix iy myself. Or move on to another phone.

A friend gave me an iPhone 3gs with cracked glass, and I fixed it with an 8 dollar shopping trip to amazon and watching a 20 minute Youtube video.

once i dropped my nokia 6680 (it was year 2005 and yes it is considered cool gadget back then) and the poor thing split into three parts - the battery, the screen and the body. Naturally I was mortified! I reacted as if I dropped something so prescious back then. It was never restored and I have it replaced with a new one.

I smashed my ipad screen a year ago. I bought a replacement screen on ebay for $40 and tried to replace it myself. That did not go as planned. So instead of sending it to apple I took it to a local tech store who specializes in smart phone repairs. They were able to repair my ipad for $50. Works like a charm still.

Yes I broke the screen on my phone then I sent it back to Verizon. Then I broke the screen on my iPod, then I had to send it back to musicianfriends. Then my brother dropped my iPad and now the screen is cracked, but I would love to have the retina display iPad and be sure to not let that one get broken.

I had an iPhone 4S 16GB (black) and once i dropped it accidentally onto a tarmac from about 5ft high. Not surprisingly the whole front glass was shattered into many pieces. Luckily though the back glass remained intact. Instead of taking it to the Apple store, i decided to work it out myself. A little bit of research on Google and i found many replacement kits as a set of LCD+touch screen digitizer+cover(covers available in various colors :D). Finally ordered one such kit including the necessary tools on eBay for around 50$ and got it delivered in a week. Meanwhile, i watched various tutorials and do-Hows on YouTube. After watching many videos for dozens of times, i was pretty familiar with what to do. Finally, it took me 2 hours to carefully disassemble and replace the screen. I somehow managed to fit it back perfectly without any niggles. And whoaa, the iPhone was as good and functional as it was before. Its been 4 months since that and till now i haven't faced any problems.

These helped me a lot

Never had a screen shatter -- I had a Zagg screen and a case to keep my phone safe.

I broke the top left edge of the screen of my Samsung Galaxy S, but it's nothing serious, no need to repair.
