    I haven't dropped mine and have no intention of doing so. I am however thinking of taking the case off of my 4S.

    If the worst was to happen and I dropped the phone accidentally, say face down and shattered the screen or chipped it badly, what would apple charge for replacing it?

    Is it the cost of a brand new phone or less?

    Get Apple Care + if you are concerned--I have it so I don't worry so much about not using a case.

    Its wont be cheap, but not as much as a new phone.

    I don't think you can get Apple Care + here in the UK.

    if the cost to replace the phone was about £200 then I'd pay that to get it replaced.

    I can't speak for the UK...

    Broken 4S in the states costs $200 to swap.
    Broken any other model iPhone $150

    I would imagine prices would be similar, but obviously cannot say for sure.

    Apple care+ isnt available in the UK, however, for a smashed screen or any other replacement thats either out of warranty or human error is a flat rate of £119 i believe.

    If the back glass breaks it's $30, if the front then $200 I believe

    making the assumption of no applecare, i don't know, the best thing to do is to look after your stuff.:)

    More I think about it the more it probably makes sense just to leave the case on. I just think the iPhone 4s especially in white looks awesome without a case.
