    Ok, i was at the gym, long story short somehow i dropped a dumbbell on my iphone and now its like a inverted purple color and the bottom 20% of the screen is digitally smeared. Everything still works i just have to press certain things by remembering where they are but the most sucky thing is that i cant appreciate its beautiful display anymore and you can just forget about typing something in direct sunlight, you cant see nothing anymore. I went to the 5AVE store and they said they would love to give me a another one but obviously there was impact and it wasnt apples fault soooooooo..... Can someone help me out on getting a new iphone somehow without paying 500 bucks for one on ebay. Thank you very much guys!

    So is the glass shattered or are there just a bunch a dead pixels?
    Or both?
    When my iPod touch's screen shattered Apple replaced it for me for free.
    They said it's not covered by the warranty but they'd make a special exception.
    It really just depends on the Genius you get.
    I'd just recommend taking it into the Apple Store to see what they say.

    Same thing happened to me with my touch!
    I think they may be more strict with the iPhones but i'm not sure.

    That's not a good way to spend Christmas money - more of an unexpected expense :( Sorry to hear about your story OP.

    No its not as bad as that guys iphone, you really cant see a crack in the screen but the lcd sure does show you where the impact is when its on. What do you guys think of those websites that fix the screen and lcd underneath for $200?? Like this one http://www.iresq.com/iphone/iPhone3G.php
