    Square Trade kicks in after 30 days I believe. It's $100 to sign up and $50 deductible. You'll have to mail your phone in and wait a couple days. For an extra $50, you can get your phone replaced immediately at apple today.

    This is why parents shouldn't buy iPhone 4s for their middle schoolers.

    I'm calling ********...

    However, if that is true, then learn how to spell...:mad: There is no reason that you can't form coherent sentences. At all. Sit back, take a breath. It's a damn phone, not your kid....:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    You have very poor grammar leading anyone to believe that you're some dumb kid.

    Does a persons age or background really matter? He came for advice, is it really hard for people to give sound advice without the lousy, pathetic attitude that comes with it?

    Best option was already given. Take the broken iPhone and $200 to the nearest Apple Store.

    How about your method of payment? Did you use a credit or debit card to pay for the phone? I believe AMEX has some kind of insurance for the first 90 days after purchase.
    I would call your bank and ask them if you have coverage before dealing with Apple.

    Walk into your local apple store, pretend your on your iPhone talking to someone and bump against a table on purpose and let your iPhone fall out of your hand and pretend to be shocked! Like you just dropped your child, add tears of your man enough... Lol

    Make sure this takes place in front of employees so someone can see! Perhaps they will feel sorry for you and replace for free.

    ^I would really do this!

    or perhaps it be caught on the security camera and one of the Geniuses will put it on Youtube so we can all enjoy. TS sometimes straight is best at least at the end of the night you sleep good. Sometimes if your honest people will you out.

    well, that would make you at least 43yrs old (if you got married as young as 18yrs old)

    If someone who is 43yrs old types and communicates the way you do it is indeed a scary scary world.

    Take your phone back and pay for a replacement ... can't really live with a cracked up screen, that would drive me nuts.

    visa and mastercard credit cards (not debit cards, i don't think) offer purchase protection for accidental damage too.

    Here is the easy 4 step process

    1. Buy Delorean
    2. Instal flux capacitor
    3. Go back in time
    4. Put an Otterbox on your phone

    For cripe's sake people! Why buy a 300+ dollar phone and not put a case on it? Please let this poor user with bad English be a lesson to you.

    Because all the cases spoil the aesthetics? I haven't used a single case since the first iPhone and I've never had any trouble. Being careful is much better.
