    Ive had two calls today asking if i could fix them. Of course I can but,there not willing to pay the $120 for the screen and LCD plus the 30 or 40 for me to fix them.

    It shouldn't even be a question whether or not to buy a case or some sort of protection for a device that is not cheap. But think about the cost of replacing it... $499/$599 and that's enough for me to spend whatever to protect this one.

    1.Get a case
    2.Get insurance that covers things like this.

    I actually dropped my iPhone in a Jack In The Box in Merced, CA on Sunday, I had it in my hand and it slipped out while I was getting a drink with the other hand. It fell, oh probably 3-4 feet onto a tiled floor (by the soda fountain), and it did NOT crack, break or even cry, and why not? Well, I had a BoxWave Eclipse Crystal Slip Case on it, and Bodyguardz protectors on front and back, needless to say I am positive those things saved me. I do have Worth Ave Group Insurance on it, but still, I'd rather not have to pay a $50 deductible if I don't have to

    Well yeah, but I honestly cant find them under that.. Whoever i almost get a deal with always back out and its been getting really annoying. So i just want to get one and fix it and try and make a few bucks of it. And since the unlock should be out by now; who wouldnt want a white iPhone 4 thats unlocked

    I got my phone yesterday. I ordered the otterbox two weeks ago. Instead of sending me the three otterboxes for the iPhone 4 (two were for other people). They sent me one iPhone 3G case. After I called them they questioned nothing and said they were sending 3 out. Now I have a phone but no case, drawn between buying another case knowing the otterbox is coming in or waiting. Sucks

    It doesn't matter what the phones are made of...they are going to break. No surprise here. They are not designed to take a fall even if Steve says they are the most damage resistant phones to date.

    Squaretrade.com warranty. $5.99/month for accidental breakage.

    Default iPhone 4 Glass repair
    Well, dude should have just ordered a new front glass from iPhone Screen, iPhone Battery, iPhone Repair, iPhone Glass | DirectFix.com for cheaper than that and he could have got a white replacement. The tear down is easy with their video tutorial.

    I bought a silicone case for my i4. But, if you've ever had a silicone case before you know what I mean by "it catches or gets stuck inside the pockets of your clothing". Therefore right after putting it on my phone, I was outside smoking. When I reached in my pocket to answer my phone, it got caught up and then fell onto the sidewalk !!! But fortunately the case that caused the problem.... Solved the problem.

    HOW IRONIC 

    Talking $199 ouch!!
    That's a pretty heavy price for the replacement although it's still cheaper than getting a new phone or having to send it into Apple. My company does i4 glass replacement for $135 +tax. We also turn black iPhone 4s into White one's for $100 Pretty busy over here. I do admit though the white i4 is pretty slick!!

    One day, a young man went to the doctor because his arm was hurting. The doctor asked the young man "does your arm hurt when I do this?" and the young man said "yes. It hurts when you do that.". It was then the doctor figured out the solution and told young man "If it hurts when you hold it that way, then don't hold it that way.".

    The moral of the story is, if you have a cr@p load of stuff in your hands, put your iPhone 4 in your d@mn pocket. Case and point, if your not smart enough to put your iPhone in your pocket while your carrying a lot of stuff, then you probably shouldn't own an iPhone.

    Yes, the iPhone 4's glass is far less than advertised as far as strength goes and will break, but if your not intelligent or mature enough to own a iPhone and put it in your pocket when your hands are full or your not using it, then you shouldn't own one.

    I can't wait for the white ones to be released if they ever do! Turning a black one white probably voids the warranty...

    People r freaking crazy to
    Not have a case!! This is a $600 phone/computer, that is very easily dropped!! I have a case on mine, screen protector, and have it wrapped in a super soft cloth whenever it is in my pocket!! I'm taking NO chances!

    Did anyone actually BELIEVE Jobs and apple when they claimed it's as strong as helicopters and trains and the moon??

    GET A CASE!!
