    Hi, long time listener first time caller etc.

    Last weekend i dropped my iPhone and a fairly large curved lone appeared on my screen but as I rub my nail over it I can't feel any cracks. Over the course of the week I now seem to be siffering from an intermittent dead green pixel at the end of the crack and more worryingly two solid black lines have formed half way down the screen and as the days go on the lines are growing and creeping more toward the centre from the right hand edge.

    Phone is under warranty for another 3 weeks as I'm coming up to twelve months but I'm assuming that this is going to be costly if I send it back to Apple? I'm doubtful but Is there anything that I can do to fix it?

    Warranty covers manufacturing defects, not your lack of care. It sounds like it is obvious that it was dropped: Apple will charge you for any repair.

    Does anyone know what the cause is or how much is it likely to cost me?
