I have owned a Droid, two Droid 2's, a Droid 3, and currently own a Droid 4. That amounts to 4+ years with a smartphone. I do not use screen protectors or cases. Not once during that span of time did I so much as scratch a one of them. Two weeks ago, I was in Portland, OR for a week-long convention. Over in Portland, they have something called the "light rail". It's a great service that runs all over the city. My friends and I used it 100+ times during the seven-day stay. We arrived on Sunday. The following Saturday, after already having used the light rail 90 times, we got on again headed for the Rose Garden Arena. I was sitting in a corner seat, pushed up against the wall by the rather large gentleman sitting to my right. The light rail makes plenty of twists and turns, and is pretty bumpy. When we got down to the arena, I stood up and pulled out my Droid 4 to check for messages. The screen had a scratch running straight from the top of the phone to the bottom. I was in shock. When we were back in the hotel later that night, even though I knew it was an old legend and would NOT work, I spread toothpaste on the sceen. The next morning, as expected, it had done nothing. When I got home the following Sunday, I tried all sorts of class cleaners and buffers. All to no avail. I ended up having to order a new screen and replace it myself using a guide on Phandroid.
I ordered a case and screen protector that night.

I have broken the screen on my phone and I had to have it replaced by the OEM. Ouch. In their defense, it was definitely my fault it was broken.

I was getting out of the car once to open the gate and my phone was in my lap. As you can guess it fell out and right onto the path of the rear right tyre. When i realised my phone was missing i searched everywhere. Gave it a ring and i heard the tone! The screen was destroyed but the phone worked! Gave it to a repair shop and got it back the next day. It was a nokia 2600 classic. Still have it! :p

I have never personally broken my screen, but I have seen others that have and usually it ends up in an insurance replacement or ebay phone.

Yes I have broken a phone scree before. I had the iPhone 3G and when I was at the movies I dropped my phone right on the screen but I was in luck because I knew a guy who sells parts for cracked screen. So I got the parts and I looked up on YouTubeon how to replace cracked screens. It showed me all the steps so I followed every step it told me to do. So I did everything it told me and there my iPhone 3G was goo as new I hope I win this iPad so thank you and goodbye.

I broke the screen to my Nokia and as I was trying to fix it, the screen came off and so I just gave up on it. Since then I got a blackberry and that is what I've bee using as my phone for the past 2 years, almost.

Yes I have. And the insurance got it replaced.

I cracked the screen on my Droid Razr 2 days after the launch. It's kinda of sketchy but to have it fixed I walked into a Bestbuy store where I purchased the device and used my buddies phone then purchased their insurance and made a claim a couple days later with no deductable.

I have only cracked one phones screen, and fortunately, the protective film I added for scratches kept everything working fine until I could replace the phone.

Have you ever broken the screen of your phone and what did you do to fix it?
I have yet to break a screen, but if I had, I would utilize my insurance.

Never had the misfortune of a broken screen. However I'm sure if I enter enough of these "Broken Screen" giveaways, I'll jinx myself right into a broken screen...

Very first cell phone I had, an LG with a monotone screen, took a trip into the toilet. Screen never worked again but as that was before I did texting I didn't fix it.

Yes, I've broken a screen on my Motorola flip phone 6 years ago, i couldn't fix it, because the entire thing is broken

Yes, I dropped my HTC Thunderbolt and ordered a OEM HTC Thunderbolt Digitizer Touch Panel from online and looked up a video on youtube on how to replace step by step. it works pretty good now.
266. jjjsong (Posts: 75; Member since: 27 Dec 2011)
No, never broke any screen so never had to fix them.

I just got out of my car, was walking into my house and my HTC Thunderbolt slipped out from my pocket and hit the carpet floor.
It actually cracked the screen and I kid you not. One of the weakest displays I have ever seen on a phone. My old iPhone 3G took many drops to the floor, including my Motorola Droid and Samsung Galaxy S2.
Never did they even scratch but it took one drop and the Thunderbolt was no more. Sure the screen still turned on and was usable but lets be honest, a cracked screen isn't pleasant to look at and most can't look past it! So I called Best Buy and it was under insurance and they replaced it for me.
