    Warranty doesn't cover that kind of damage.

    Having said that, try going into an apple shop and pleading.

    Oh its quite obviously user damage but unless you want to have to pay up I'd still go into an apple shop and try your hardest.

    A few tears may help as well.

    If you're female or could get a female to go for you and ask a male genius - all to the good.

    Oh and to answer your question - yes it could be replaced.

    is there ny ways these cracks could happen without dropping it? so for example perhaps accidently puttin pressure on it if it was in my pocket? could that cause cracks of that size.

    I had a crack in my screen the other day, and took it into the apple store to see if maybe I could plead for a replacment. They told me they just rolled out a new program where they replace the glass in store, took 15 minutes. From what I recall, they do it if the screen is still usable but the outer glass is broken.

    It was free as well.

    for "any" why feeling so lazy :rolleyes:

    I've cracked my iPhone™ screen and was wondering if I could have it fixed under the 1-year complimentary warranty rather than have to pay £100 to buy a replacement. I am in the United Kingdom using O2. Thanks.

    Yes, but the cracks make it quite obvious that the phone has been dropped. The phone still works fine, as does the touchscreen; it's just the glass that is broken. Can it be replaced?

    Better? :p

    And yes, I share your loathing of what the internet has been doing to language :\

    It will cost you more then £100 for a replacement phone in the UK.

    How did you damage the phone?

    No. No user-inflicted damage is covered by warranty. That means ANY, absolutely ANY cracking of the screen. Don't even bother asking if you can tell them the battery isn't working or that it has some other problem, they'll take one look at the screen, realise what you're up to, and laugh you out of the store.

    They say in their second post that they dropped it.
