    Today whilst taking a call I dropped my iPhone 4. Needless to say the screen broke not cracked but spiderwebbed so There are hundreds of little breaks all over the screen. My question is what is the cheapest way to get it repaired. I called apple and they said it would cost £149. Plus An additional £25 for a replacement whilst it is being repaired. I'd there a cheaper alternative. And how difficult is it to replace your own screen. Thanks for any help.

    Actually, the concrete was an innocent bystander. Blame gravity. Sorry for your loss.

    Not Gravity, Blame . . .

    Don't blame gravity, blame the coefficient of friction between your fingers and the iPhone.

    Step 1 is friction.
    Step 2 is gravity.
    Step 3 is concrete.

    Don't blame the friction between your hand and the phone, blame the electrical signals in your brain causing you to weaken your grip

    Do you honestly expect that someone out there is just watching these posts waiting for you to post your question and will reply within minutes of yours? Its been 37 minutes or so since you posted your question, have some patience and lighten up, we are sorry for your dropped iphone, and while there may be a few 'wankers' who can't help but laugh at your misfortune, I am sure someone will respond with some helpful information, but be patient.
