    Ok so i dropped my iphone off table onto a wooden floor the other day and the glass smashed, my iphone 4 bumper that i got from apple is falling to pieces at the bottom near the charging port,

    I have seen that quite alot of people have had their iPhone 4's exchanged for free in the USA when taking their broken screened iPhone 4 to the genius bar.

    I was wondering if anyone had been to the genius bar in the UK and had theirs replaced for free?

    Also is the bumper covered by warranty? i feel that if the bumper hadn't broken at the bottom my phone would still be in one piece as there is actually a piece of glass missing where the bumper has broken :(

    The Apple warranty covers manufacturing defects and is not an insurance policy against accidental damage.

    You might be lucky and get a sympathetic Genius who will give you a free replacement but be prepared to pay for the repair because it isn't Apple's fault you dropped it.
