Well I've had the phone for just over 2yrs and its not had a single mark on it. Today I majorly fucked up and left it on the roof of the car to do something else and forgot to lift it off. You've guessed it I drove half a mile down the road, hit the brakes and it shot down the windscreen bounced off the bonnet and onto the road, smashing both front and back to fuck.

I've been told it can be fixed as its just the glass panelling thats damaged. The phone still works 100% (which amazes me considering the damage it has).

Anyone know of a price I should be looking at???

Apparently the cheep screen replacements are pretty shit.

How much do apple charge to fix it?

Take out phone insurance and claim on that?
