    So i was playing football on concrete as it was just a catch and my iphone was in my pocket with no case on and as i was going to make a catch i jumped and my iphone fell out of my pocket and landed on concrete. So a few days later i went into the apple store fully willing to pay 200 to get it replaced and the genius told me hell fix it on the house this one time. i was extactic said thank you and left with my new phone. just wanted to post this to show all of you with cracked screens there is hope youll get a nice genius.

    (sorry for the crappy pic all i had for a camera was my bros bb bold)

    I love stuff like this. One of the main geniuses at my local apple store is really a grouch tho so its hard to get stuff replaced with him. I've had him twice, but after a slightly unpleasant time he replaced my iPod touch once and my iPhone once.

    Good to know other people can be better though.

    It's good stuff like this that the sycophantic blogs rarely talk about. Contests. Apple is tops in customer satisfaction for a reason.

    Dear PhelpsiPhan, we regret to inform you that the upcoming genius interview you had scheduled at your local :apple: store has been canceled. It has been brought to our attention that you may actually have first hand knowledge of our products and that you also may be nice. :)

    Well, we broke one of our brand new ones. So we took it into the Apple Store, but it down on a table in front of a whole bunch of people and told them our story: it dropped a couple feet onto pavement.

    We got a new replacement on the spot.
