    Hey,

    I need some advice:

    I have a new (recently replace by Apple under warentee) Iphone 4S 64gb. For the first time I managed to crack the glass in the back. The corner somehow got a bit smushed and the glass is beginning to flake off a bit... nasty!

    Nevertheless, what should I do? What do you all recommend?

    -Get the glass replaced aftermarket?
    -Get the glass replaced by apple?
    -Live with it in a case?

    Is there some sort of thin protective film I can put on the back to keep the glass from crumbling away?

    PACKING TAPE???!!!

    I like the thin profile of no case, but don't want glass crumbs in my hand...

    Thank you all for your good advice,

    r.

    if all you are concerned with is that the pieces don't fall out, one of those film protector thingy should do the trick and u can keep it naked.

    Personally it would bug the heck out of me, but that's just me.

    Around $30 for Apple to replace. Get them to fix it.

    You can buy a replacement back on iFixit. It's the easiest part to replace on the 4/4s.
