    Take it to an apple store and they should replace the whole phone for $180 roughly.

    They did for DH and seem to do it often for others.

    I'm at the apple store now using their wifi lol. $229 to replace the whole phone. I'll be asking why people ate charged all different amounts.

    Cost me $90 for the iPod to get fixed at a little phone kiosk at Westfield.

    I'll be getting a new case for sure. It was in a silicone case when he dropped it.

    Got all three boys with me but they're all behaving coz theirs a kids area with iPads to play on.

    Apple won't usually replace it but will sell you a reconditioned phone for around $200. There is a kiosk at the galleria that will do screens for $180 and the back for $80. It's at the undercover park entrance.

    Grab an Otterbox Defender case for your phone ... we've got all our Apple gear in them and DD2 drops/chews on everything and everything is still intact ... touchwood.

    Yes, definitely get an Otterbox. My phone has been dropped many times and even thrown against the wall by my daughter and it has survived it all.
    The other advantage is that it's rubbery so it doesn't slide off tables etc.

    I've just put a screen protector on mine, it won't protect it fully but I've dropped it SO many times (on concrete and tiles) I'm surprised it hasn't shattered, I can only put it down to the screen protector.

    It had a screen protector on it lol. That's the only thing that was holding it all together have to get a new one for this phone but will do it tomorrow.

    One good thing at least. The broken one used to put itself on speaker phone randomly but the new one doesn't yay.

    This otter box case is too big for my hand and makes me hand all sweaty :/
