    So I've had my iPhone since launch day and its been fantastic. Until today that is :(

    I was in an extreme rush this morning and my 5s came out my front hoodie's pocket and landed on the road face down as I was stepping out of a Taxi.

    The bottom right upper section just where the screen starts at the bezel has chipped and cracked about half an inch. there are also various swirls all over the display where the road surface has impacted the glass too.

    Is there anyway I can get this fixed? UK only please. I will pay anything I don't care what it costs, its just that no one i've seen today carries the parts for a 5S display. I'm even willing to spend £216 for Apple to do it on Wednesday if this is the only option I have. I am even contemplating selling the phone as is and just buying a brand new sim only one, for my contract.

    Just get it swapped at Apple. Your best option in my opinion.

    Take it to Apple, they'll replace it with an identical one with brand new externals and you keep your warranty etc as before. The 5 display is the same as the 5s but there are plenty of cheap places who use inferior replacement parts, so best to use Apple.

    Book a genius appointment, explain what happened and can they exchange it for you.

    And buy Applecare+ if it's offered on the replacement.

    I'll also suggest taking in to Apple for replacement.

    How much is a replacement going to cost? I can't imagine they would give away a phone if the said phone was user user damaged.

    Are you in the UK or USA? I meant to imply they'd be a charge, yes.

    I have tried taking a photo of it on my DSLR, but it really hasn't come out that good. it does look much worse in person than on a camera. Its chipped on the right side bezel, the one thing what has me worried is its a bit sharp and to me it looks like its increased in size slightly than on Friday, so it could spread and get much, much, much, much worse.

    If cost isn't an issue as you say, it's definitely worth getting it replaced/fixed by Apple. It's the only way you'll keep the warranty!

    Where abouts in the UK are you?
    A pic would be good, so we can check the damage.
    But, as has been mentioned, if you take it to an Apple store, authorised repair centre they should be able to help. Just be up front with what happened, and they should be able to help you :)
