    Does anyone know of anywhere to go and get the iPhone 4s front and back crackproof? Like replacing the regular glass with something that wouldn't crack

    I don't know. I have a case and a screen protector. I know there is a place to buy glass backs for the iPhone. Be warned, though, that modifying the hardware voids your warranty.

    Maybe the next generation

    Sounds like something for 5g or a military grade phone that you may never get your hands on. :apple:

    You could cut some of the transparent aluminum out of a window of the USS Enterprise.

    Or get a case.

    You essentially can't replace the front glass on your iPhone because it is glued to the screen itself, however, you can replace the back easily. You just need one screwdriver and it slides off. There are many back replacements that won't shatter including wood and aluminum backs however there isn't really a single shatter proof glass anywhere... If you want to shatterproof the front of the phone there is a new glass screen protector which should greatly increase its strength, and that coupled with say, an aluminum back would mostly shatterproof your phone
