I don't listen to music while doing resistance as the cords just get in the way, but when I do cardio I do. Have my phone in an armband the whole time so there's no need to worry about it

One of my pet hates is people who leave their phones lying around in the gym.

I am always tempted to drop a plate or stand on one rather than having to dance round them.

To the OP. Does your home insurance cover it? If you have accidental damage cover on your home contents insurance, give it a shout!!

I've worked out with my iPhone in my pocket since 2007 but I've always used InCase sliders and I've avoided any damage from weights and dumbbells.

This.. I've been reading this thread with amusement but still thinking great kudos to the OP for putting this up.

Fingers crossed your apple store experience tonight ends well (which one is it?).

If it an expensive replacement, consider the mobile insurance next time - still recommend my barclays account - for £6.50pm my phone and my ipad are covered.

At least you'll change something for next time, I'm sure. I had a friend who kept running over her iPhone - fell out of her pocket as she got in the car.. She must have smashed that screen three times before she got a case!

Thank you. Fortunately I'm not a stress head and have to put it off to bad experience!

I do run a Barclays account but have never thought about that option. Think I will now!

Iím m off to Brent Cross at 5pm to plea my story and see what they say. I'm sure they will find it just as amusing as everyone on here, and my fellow colleagues who are fully aware I adore apple's products.
