When i had my first phone (The original, G1) i dropped it only a month after i had it cracking the screen down the middle. I decided to put a case on it to protect it further. A week after that, my niece was playing with it and dropped it on the kitchen floor adding another crack. I figured that had to be the last that would happen so i was just more careful. 6 months later, it fell out of my side pocket on my d**kie shorts and made what looked like a spiderweb on the screen. After that i recycled it and bought a G2X....( i got insurance on my phones from then on)

I've never had the "fortunate" opportunity of breaking my screen and/or having to replace one. I do, however, would replace an iPhone 4s front/rear glass cover to the blue color for fun though...

I ordered a screen and lcd from amazon and tried to youtube it. Ended up messing up my iphone even more than had to pay even more to get it fixed!

Never had to (Crossing fingers).... But if i did, I'd at least try to replace myself and hopefully no FUBAR incidents occur.

As of this date and time...I've not broken a screen however, with a new iPhone...I'm a-bit more concerned. I hear they are a little more fragile than my previous Droid phones...does anybody concur?

Never broken a screen on a phone. The fix: an ounce of prevention. TPU cases are the best!!!

I've never had a broken screen i use screen protector and i usually put insurance on my electronic devices so just in case anything of that sort happens it would get repaired/replaced.

I dropped my phone on a tile floor. As it fell out of my hands I attempted catching it but all I ended up doing was slapping it down on to the floor making it fall faster. It landed face down and by hearing the impact I knew the screen was done for. I picked it up and the screen was completely shattered, I couldn't use the screen for anything. Luckily I had insurance so I didn't have to much of an issue getting it replaced.

I have only broken one screen on a personal phone. I drove 10 miles with it on top of my truck before it fell off and smashed on my driveway when I got home. Fortunately my insurance covered it.

I have replaced hundreds of screens at work though. Mostly on Blackberry's. Most devices are pretty easy to repair.

I've had so many smartphones over the years, and have never broken a single one of them--I still have my xv6600 from 2002, and it still works great.

My screen cracked on my orginal Droid after falling off my lap while rushing to get out of my car. I bought a replacement kit from a seller on ebay and repaired it myself.

I broke my EVO screen twice in one month and thanks to Best Buy insurance got it fixed free of charge. The hardest part was having to use an LG Rumor for a couple of weeks.
