I talked to at&t yesterday actually because my little sister broke her phone. It still works and everything, they told me that the I will probably kick in the end of the year so if you can wait that long you can get a new one for the $50–100.

duct tape it back on

Apple’s hardware coverage lasts a year. You have to take it to an Apple Store (or authorized Apple service rep), as AT&T won’t provide warranty service.

it didn’t fall off….

jkainz's avatar

yeah but they said that they can’t cover the crack in the screen

I called the apple line and thats what they told me anyways.

well apple makes a screen protector. Its a clear film to place on your screen maybe that will hold it until you can get a new one…

jkainz's avatar

the screen isn’t falling off or anything its just severly cracked.

I can’t say much other than checking with an apple store, but how the hell did you crack it?

annaott22's avatar

well it could help to protect until you get a new one

I was sitting in my seat in class and it fell out of my pocket and hit the tile

my husband cracked his too he droped it on concrete and it spidered from the corner up it still works were just waiting so he can get a new one

squirbel's avatar

that sucks. Mine has fallen onto concrete from my pickup truck (yeah I’m female and I drive a pickup…a big one!)... Been flung across a room (I talk with gestures and got a little excited)... Sat on… The works… And I have like 3 nicks on it. (not on the glass, its spotless)

I swear it’s indestructible

jkainz's avatar

yeah thats what mine did its on the top right corner, goes diagonal left then diagonal right and one crack continues diagnonal left

Take up a collection online and ask people to send you a dollar.

(Yeah, I know. You were speaking in hyperbole.)

Can’t watch it just yet, but if it is the video of the iPhone in a blender, I watched it 2 days after I bought it… Lol!
