My son-in-law dropped his iPhone two days ago, on a rough parking lot surface. Screen spidered, cracked most horribly. It happens. He did not choose to have a case on it for aesthetic reasons, so, well, there ya go. Calling Apple revealed the expected news that this type of thing is not covered under warranty. It's a 16GB 3G, so that'll be $299.00 to replace, thankyouveddymuch. His Christmas stocking is already stuffed with iTunes cards, about $200 worth total. Instead of songs/games/apps, reckon he might be able to use these cards towards Phixing his iPhone? During the initial call to Apple, the otherwise-helpful Genius did not know for sure if this could be done. Anyone else been down this road?
