I broke the screen on my Inspire 4G screen last year when I went hiking. There was a big scratch through the middle and about 6 scratches in other places of the screen. I just had to deal with it and get a new screen protector until my next upgrade six months later.
Now I have a Samsung Captivate Glide. No scratches yet, but there will probably be one very soon.

lets break it down.
Phone: Droid Inc
location: Parking Lot
I was leaving the gym and put my water bottle and phone on the roof of my car. I thought to myself "don't forget about it." I quickly opened my door, grabbed my water bottle and got in. well the next part is pretty painful as I backed up nice and slow and the phone stayed on the hood. then I punched it forward and turned and the phone flew from my roof and skidded across the lot... batter door, battery, and phone all go flying separate ways! I panicked and grabbed it all, didn't even look at it or put it together till I got home. screen was shattered but the phone was in pretty good shape! so I hit up Amazon and ordered a new screen! I had replaced my friends wildfire screen earlier that year so it wasn't to tough! had I known about Worx though I might have checked it out! my brothers iPhone screen is currently shattered and so is my cousins (lol iPhone) and so ill be sure to tell them about Worx!

Never broken my phone screen. If I had ever broken my screen, probably have to go to the repair shop and get it fixed.

I have only cracked the order of my screen on my Samsung Epic but it was barely noticable. I have never replaced a screen on my phone.

I have encountered many broken screens in my day, all of which I sold online; smartphones have a particularly good resale value regardless of condition!
7. legion181 (Posts: 24; Member since: 25 Apr 2012)
I got them fixed by some shady place in Chinatown.

Never has my screen broken and I don't plan on it breaking. This will be my savior if it does break.

No. I have neve broken my screen. I'm always carefully hand my phone, try not to have anything happend to it.
15. jmonteiro829 (Posts: 36; Member since: 13 Feb 2012)
I have had a few broken screens in my day. What I do is order a new one on ebay and fix it myself. Save a lot of money that way plus I am a techie!
16. aboveaverage12 (Posts: 12; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
Never broke my screen. But I know how to replace parts if I have to
17. JeffreyMDoran (Posts: 9; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
Yes, putting your phone in your back pocket on NYE is never a good idea. Luckily this happened when Sprint was still doing replacements on cracked screens. Would love to have a new hot set of headphones.

I've broken 2 screens.. once with a blackberry.. took it out of my pocket and didn't have a tight enough grip on it. It tumbled out of my hands and landed exactly flat on the floor with a slap.. screen was shattered. I took it back to Verizon who suprirsed me by saying for $50 they'd sent me a brand new one. I didn't have insurance on the device either! I jumped on that deal and had them send it to me.. at that same visit to Verizon, I saw that Motorola had just come out with a new phone, called the Moto Droid. Curiosity got the best of me and I ended up using an upgrade and walking out the door with one.
I have been an Android user since! I did get my replacement BB and only used it when traveling over seas.
The second time I broke a screen was when I had a HTC Rezound. Dropped and shattered that screen too. Not having any upgrades available, I was determined to stick it out with this one for a few months until I could get a new one via upgrade via another line.
I purchased a screen protector and applied it, to keep any of the glass from coming loose and falling off. It worked great! Though the screen was a little spidery, it still worked ok enough to limp along. Since then I've replaced that phone with a Nexus and have been enjoying that so far.
Replaced the Rezund

Have not ever broken a screen - but I'm really careful with my phone, including good screen protectors and cushioning cases.
20. Chazz121 (Posts: 1; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
one time there was a slight scratch on my cellphone screen. it wasn't big but it did cause noticable discoloration.i tried every thing from the common toothpaste trick to brasso and even a banana to fix the screen. after days of trying to fix this scratch the screen started to fade in and out, and after that the phone just didn't work. i had to buy a new phone for full retail price. this a time i really wish i could have just replaced the screen.
21. jcnbachan (Posts: 4; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
Never broken the screen of my phone before, if it did, I would ask for a replacement.
22. robertlwalters (Posts: 5; Member since: 26 Mar 2012)
Luckily I have not broken my screen but I have brought my phone into a lake.
23. Bashok (Posts: 36; Member since: 14 Dec 2010)
I buy a screen protector to protect the screen from breaking. It's worth the investment
40. Captain_Doug (Posts: 736; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
How does a thin price of plastic stop the screen from breaking? I'm telling you now, don't count on that method working for you.
25. Planterz (Posts: 250; Member since: 30 Apr 2012)
I broke the screen on my old AT&T Sony Xperia 10a by throwing it at the wall. The phone was a piece of junk that barely worked, so after switching to Verizon and getting a RAZR MAXX, I took out my pent up frustrations with the Xperia in a glorious moment of catharsis.
The Xperia was a replacement for a 910a that had a small screen crack. No idea how that happened.
26. niteryda8 (Posts: 18; Member since: 10 Jan 2012)
I consider myself lucky not to have broken the screen on my HTC EVO, cuz I have dropped it several times and never heard that sound of disaster, thanks to my otter box commuter series and screen protectors. It's always a great feeling to see the phone that hit the concrete doesn't have a scratch on it, thanks to my investment in that case. Now all I need is these headphones to enjoy my music on my evo to the fullest.
27. Nonono (Posts: 22; Member since: 26 Mar 2012)
covered it with some scotch tape good as new :D
28. ian01 (Posts: 5; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
Luckily no, and I hope to never need such a service.
29. Alistair (Posts: 19; Member since: 16 May 2011)
I've broken my screen on my first Iphone 3gs trailriding on my quad. Then there was my Samsung captivate which I got four replacement phones for because all of their GPS radios were garbage and when the last one got me lost in the middle of New Werk NJ slums that one met a wall face first. I then got a HTC surround which I loved but fell to the earth in a gorilla glass shattering smash when I was taking my 1 year old puppy out of my car to take to the dog park, and between him dashing and dancing and me not paying attention lost grip of my poor windows phone and that phone was no more. Now I have an LG nitro and I love me HD screen so I'm praying nothing happens but if it does I would love this service and some sick head phones.

Used on of my two insurance claims and paid an arm and a leg deductible... :(
31. veevans01 (Posts: 29; Member since: 09 Jan 2012)
I just broke the screen on my rezound a week ago and I am still weighing my options. This looks like a good one.
32. Krooney7988 (Posts: 1; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
I broke my previous phone's screen christmas shopping in 2010, it was an htc evo 4g. I attempted to fix my screen myself but found that the internals had been damaged and the entire phone would need to be replaced. After making my claim with assurion i recieved a phone with a faulty screen, the housing was actually not attached. This time around I was able to replace my screen with some carefully followed instructions and had a "good as new" working phone!!
33. ph00ny (Posts: 565; Member since: 26 May 2011)
never broke my cell phone screen. If i do break one, i'm probably going to get one of those replacement kits from amazon
34. tekkid21 (Posts: 1; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
I saved up and got a screen cover till phone upgrade time.
35. Demario24 (Posts: 17; Member since: 25 Apr 2012)
Cracked the screen on my first phone. Had to buy another phone.
36. verybeo (Posts: 7; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
yes, i had some dead pixel but this dead pixel is going smaller automatic so i can use my phone "almost" normaly without any fix, great samsung soulb
37. Captain_Doug (Posts: 736; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
I have fixed the screen of my LG Ally which probably wasn't worth the trouble. I did a ton of research to figure out which screen worked and which was the cheapest and what tools I needed. It ended up working and I only paid ~$35 and a few hours of my life. As a first timer I think I did pretty good. I ended up selling it for $60 so I definitely made my money back.
38. EclipseGSX (Posts: 1476; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
Personally no, but I bought an EVO with a shattered screen on craiglist and replaced it myself and sold it for a nice profit
39. charlesmont (Posts: 4; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
Dropped my phone on a marble countertop! Luckily I had insurance on the phone!
41. Steve.G (Posts: 8; Member since: 17 Jun 2011)
I have never broken the screen of my phone, but I work in the wireless industry and people either have to file and insurance claim or buy a new phone in most cases.
42. BAFBomber (Posts: 2; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
No, but I did break an iPod screen. I sold it and bought a new one.
44. hotdoggnboi (Posts: 10; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
I had some slight scratches on my last smartphone, but my new Galaxy Nexus is flawless still (and I love that) I'm really cautious with my phone and hopefully will be a long time before I actually break one. A repair kits would be great to have on hand in case I needed it in the future if a local company can't repair it.
45. KiddUriel (Posts: 5; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
I broke the screen of my phone once in my life. It was the HTC G1 when it first came out. I was so excited downloaded apps, i remember downloading the cracked screen app and pranking my mother. She was really mad at me at first, until she found out it was a joke. The next day, on my way to school i accidentally let my phone drop and it just happened to fall face first. Voila! I got this problem fix by my mother. As much as she hated the thought of having to do so, she bought me a new unit at full price.
46. Exile SS (Posts: 40; Member since: 07 Oct 2010)
I have broken 2 screens both were my Motorola Rizer. Once was due to stepping on it while taking off my pants, the other was due to my friend running it over late at night when it slipped out out my pocket. In BOTH cases I used handset protection that I no longer use because the price went up.
47. Rwave (Posts: 3; Member since: 18 Dec 2011)
Haven't broken my screen yet, and I'm really hoping it will never happen. I try my best to take care of my phone with screen protectors, cases, and careful handling.
49. zonam (Posts: 20; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
No... careful enough not to break the screen (so far:))
50. nazgul (Posts: 21; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
Never broke the screen so far on any of the phones I owned
51. ghostnexus (Posts: 95; Member since: 07 Mar 2012)
I never had a broken screen on my phone, but I sure did scratch it up!
52. mnp188 (Posts: 19; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
Not yet... (and hopefully not in the future). It's too expense for a screen replacement job
53. Roofer11 (Posts: 10; Member since: 21 Jun 2012)
I have only broke/cracked only one screen in about 15 yrs...all I did was to left it go! Bought another phone, it's the easiest fix! Forget the monthly insurance, still got to pay a deductible, yeah, cheaper than buying a new phone at full $$ but my gosh, Verizon puts you under a hot, bright light and gives the CSI treatment! Hey, let me pay the deductible and stop w/ the who/what/why and where...Geez!!
55. KrNpRiDe (Posts: 10; Member since: 27 Feb 2012)
I never broke the screen on a smartphone and hopefully I never will.
56. Skidro13 (Posts: 53; Member since: 27 Jul 2010)
Someone stole my Droid Incredible. I found it in a parking lot with a broken screen and camera 30 minutes later.
57. huypaulha94 (Posts: 22; Member since: 21 Jun 2012)
I have broken my phone before, stuck it in my back pocket and was playing around in the park's playground... (although I'm 18) Haha. Went crack and then I had to bring to a kiosk in the mall and got it fixed.
58. johnnybe (Posts: 23; Member since: 27 Apr 2011)
Heck yes I have broke a screen. Was luck though and could still use phone the few months I had left to upgrade.
59. scorpeyun (Posts: 22; Member since: 18 May 2012)
Never had to replace a screen but I usually take good care of my toys, too expensive not too.
60. Synfin (Posts: 3; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
this looks like a cool set of headphones and a screen protector is just a plus
61. smak425 (Posts: 5; Member since: 16 Jul 2012)
i broke the screen of my Nokia 5230 but it was fortunate that i didn't repair the screen because it's outdated and not worth the money for the repair
