    Really? LMAO!

    I understand being frustrated because you broke your phone, but are you seriously questioning the build quality of it? Yours looks like it was a bit more than your simple "Ooops! I dropped it!" No offense, but rolling naked without a case is a game of russian roulette...there is a point where looking for fault in the product becomes moot, and you simply have to accept that it wouldn't have mattered what phone it was, you'd be paying for repairs.

    Yikes. That's certainly one of the worst cases of a shattered screen I've seen recently. It sucks, I think most of us have either been there, or in the very least had a very close call. I run naked as well, so don't feel too bad about that. Hope you can get it fixed/replaced. Let us know!

    Best bet is to take it to an Apple Store. With no AC+ it will probably run up to $200. If they say no to your repair there is a high likelihood that there is a third party repair center somewhere around there who will do it if you are uncomfortable fixing it yourself.

    Try looking up a local iPhone repair shop. We have them here in my area (and I'm sure you prob got some in yours).

    According to latest reports, the cost of a screen replacement on an iPhone 5 is now $149 - virtually the same cost as AppleCare+ ($99) and one "physical damage" repair/exchange ($49).

    Worst case scenario is that you have to pay for a refurbishment unit at the Apple Store -- $229 plus tax.

    (I just used my AppleCare+ to replace a phone, and they gave me two bills -- the $49 I paid, and the $229 I would have paid.)

    So think of it this way: had you bought AppleCare+, it would have cost you $148, and because you didn't, it'll cost you $229.

    Your failure to buy AppleCare+ has cost you $81 plus tax. Annoying, but not tragic.

    That's weird...maybe wait a week or two (if possible), it may not have been rolled out yet...

    Can anyone help please
    I did a screen replacement on my Ifone 4s, everything was ok until I dropped a screw in the case and turned the phone upside down to remove it, then out came a small gold piece with a hole (may be hooks onto or where a screw goes through) See pic. If anyone can tell me where it goes I would be so grateful.
    The phone works fine as before except the WiFi keeps turning on and off, could this small gold piece be the problem??Need to repair badly damaged screen-fone.jpg
