My iPhone 3GS took a tumble, and is cracked at the side. Luckily it doesn't affect the touch screen, just unsightly. In fact, a part of it must've chipped off. Oh well, contract is up in October, then I'll get the iPhone 5.

Yes, broke a 3Gs screen and then sold it with the broken screen, did nothing to fix it.

I broke the glass on my iphone 3g 3 years back,I usedwww.missionrepair.com , they provide a similar service to what radioshack provides. I think i paid 117$ including one day shipping. They did an excellent job, i recommended them to some of my friends too.

I have never broken a screen on my phone, but if I did there are some local people who fix them for about $50, so I would probably call them.

I have never broken my screen so I've been lucky.
Ps I've proven to be Apple's biggest fan so I deserve to win this.

I haven't broken the glass on my smartphone. I don't use a bumper or any kind of case...I just treat and handle my phone like it's my precious, little baby...which it is! :)

I broke the screen on my old Xperia A by throwing it at the wall after switching to Verizon. The phone was was an insurance replacement for an SE 910A with a sligly cracked screen.
133. Ubi2447 (Posts: 131; Member since: 14 Feb 2012)
No. I have never broken the screen on any of my phones.
134. torr310 (Posts: 532; Member since: 27 Oct 2011)
No, I have not broken the screen. But if I did, I will probably get a new one instead of fixing it.
135. Willbill124 (Posts: 1; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)
Well i unscrewed the screen off then screwed the screen off of my other phone and put it on the new phone. It was the simple works like a charm.

I broke the screen to my phone and let's just say I no longer gave that phone anymore :-(

I broke the screen of my very first phone in highschool. It was in my pocket and I was rolling around and must have hit it against something. There was really no way to fix it and the phone needed to be replaced. Lukily it was just a Trac Phone and could easily be replaced by a new phone from Wal-Mart.
138. jamrockjones (Posts: 345; Member since: 26 Oct 2011)
I've never broken a screen on my phones yet... hope it never happens either.
139. pokergator18 (Posts: 4; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)

141. joseg81 (Posts: 171; Member since: 15 Jul 2011)

145. BladePXE (Posts: 5; Member since: 23 Jun 2011)
I dropped my HTC EVO 4G on the sidewalk in NYC, the phone fell straight on the screen and the screen cracked all over. This happened when a person running down the street slammed into my arm, which was holding the phone. I sent the phone in through insurance and received a brand new unit in 2 days. It was actually pretty easy and fast, but now i am always looking out for people when i hold my cell phone out on the street.

I have never broken a screen on my phone; however, I did break my sister's screen on her HTC Rezound by accident. Luckily she had an upgrade on her account so I got her a new phone and paid for it. We ended up selling the cracked phone online!
147. Androidey (Posts: 7; Member since: 03 Mar 2012)
I broke my phones screen but got it replaced by finding a bricked phone (in my case Galaxy gio) and got it transplanted LOL... funny but true :)
148. Jamus (Posts: 30; Member since: 19 Feb 2012)
I have never broken a screen, but if I do so in the future I will use my Geek Squad protection plan to have it replaced with NO DEDUCTIBLE or additional cost! Hoooah!

161. Allister (Posts: 11; Member since: 14 Dec 2010)

162. PaulNotFromSweden (Posts: 53; Member since: 16 Sep 2011)
Yes, I've broken a screen. I used another SII (dead but with a good screen) and swapped the screens.
163. mexico9876 (Posts: 1; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)

164. ajaye999 (Posts: 8; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)
Never had a smartphone with a glass screen. Where I work there are plenty of iPhones though. We found a certified repairman who made the devices look like new. Once saved $400 bucks versus the Apple store.
165. New_Enthusiast (Posts: 3; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
I broke the screen on my BlackBerry Storm and I just got a new one through my insurance. I also broke an iPod touch a long time ago and tried to fix that myself. Was going good until the LCD cracked and I got pissed and gave up. Was going to use a replacement kit like this Worx thing though
166. trayes77 (Posts: 6; Member since: 10 May 2012)
Never broke a screen yet, knock on wood. I do everything I can to prevent that from happening. I strap a case onto everything!
167. blowfish (Posts: 10; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
No, I have never broken my screen. I guess I'm careful.
168. bstepchin (Posts: 20; Member since: 13 Dec 2010)
Never broke a screen so far. Always keep my phones in a sturdy case and screen protector from day one to avoid such mishaps.
169. dreign91 (Posts: 15; Member since: 17 May 2012)
ive never been unfortunate enough to break the screen of any of my phones but i have replaced screens for a couple of my friends
170. 2112jc (Posts: 3; Member since: 15 Jul 2012)
Have been lucky enough to never broken a screen, but my wife has broken her share of them.
171. ohdbee (Posts: 9; Member since: 15 May 2012)
Luckily I have never broken my screen, but I have dropped my phone plenty of times.
172. danielj731 (Posts: 2; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)
yes i have broken my screen by shutting my car door on it. Very tragic! I went to a service center near my house, after market one and ended up paying 250 dollars to get the screen on my iphone replaced!!!!!!!!!! better believe that thing is in a case now!!!!
173. cbusnoles (Posts: 1; Member since: 30 Jul 2012)

175. Sakmann67 (Posts: 29; Member since: 22 May 2010)
I was drunk on St. Patrick's Day, and my old phone fell out of my pocket and I stepped on it. Damn Corned Beef and Green Beer!
