    my glass on my iPhone 5 is coming off and I've had it since launch. It hasn't been like this since maybe a month or two ago, I didn't think that much of it till it began coming up a bunch. Am I better off just replacing the screen myself or gluing it or taking it to apple although more than likely it'll be $199 for a replacement seeing as it is out of warranty?

    A little super glue and you'll be good to go..... or duct tape.

    Take it into an Apple store and ask. They may replace it out of warranty.

    I just got mine replaced. Seems the battery swelled and popped the glass up. New one is fine.

    Had same issue. I went ahead and made a duct tape case. Works great:

    Same here.
    Took it in to my carrier about 3 weeks ago when the problem appeared and they gave me a refurb one in perfect condition.
    Take it to Apple and they will give you another iPhone.
