Exclamation Responsibilities

I was stunned. The cracked screen was not my fault, and yet they were asking me to pay for the damage?
I'm sorry but this is crazy. It's not Apple's responsibility to replace the screen YOU broke. Everyone says that it wasn't them. Let's put it this way.
You owned apple, and some crazy person came in and said they didn't crack the screen, give me a FREE replacement, would you? No. Why would you spend money on someone else's damage. It was obviously you because who else could have done it, and plus... it is your responsibility to look after it.
I'm sorry if this has sounded narky.
I agree with you for the rest though, sounds like you have been through a lot, might be time to buy a new iPhone, or go for the Android.
Good Luck!

Hey OP, I started a similar thread a while ago, but many people had the same experience as I did. I was lucky enough to get a replacement for something called a "hairline fracture" on my screen. You should read through for it for details and see if that applies to you. If it seems the case then you should go back to the Apple store.
