    you will need to buy a new phone


    wear and tear is not covered under warranty, its normal

    That's nonsense. Buy a back cover off of eBay and watch a tutorial on how to disassemble your iPhone to get it on.

    Buy a new phone... nonsense.

    Because that won't void your warranty or anything. I'd deal with a few cosmetic defects to make sure my phone was covered. If it's out of warranty however, it's fair game and would give me the green light to mess with at will. :)

    exactly

    the options are

    a) live with it ( scracthes etc) and retain factory fit and finish with warranty

    b) Buy a replacement case, which could not fit well, will void your warranty, etc etc

    c) buy a new phone


    just live with it

    As I read this sentence, the OP was wondering if Apple would replace the back and if so, what would they charge. I assume if he sends it to Apple for repair, the warranty would remain.

    I don't know how much Apple would charge, but if I wanted to know, I would call the Apple iPhone support line (800-275-2273) and ask.

    Well since he/she broke it anyway the warranty has basically been voided anyway. Even if the OP does encounter a problem in the future Apple won't make an exchange for free after they see the damage to the phone.

    If you're looking for a cheap fix, buy the part. If you want to keep your warranty but are willing to pay more, go through Apple.
