Absolutely gutted! Haven't a scratch on my IPhone then drop it once and the glass shatters.

Can anyone advise the cheapest trustworthy source to get this repaired?

Any personal experiences?

** UPDATE ** - Just realised this is still in warranty for a month, I doubt apple with cover this still would they?

The worst case will be £146.29 for an Apple out of service warranty, where you give them you old phone and you get an Genuine Apple factory refurbished 3gs phone in replacement (not your original phone). (basically a Brand New or refurbished phone in mint condition)

Apple out of Service Warranty

My friend did replace a screen himself. First he got the wrong part, then he had to order a new part and it was a very difficult job he said

Many Thanks for the responses above.

Just realised however, I am still covered by warranty. I doubt Apple will cover this will they as it was accidental damage?

No, as its outside of warranty cover that will be £146.29 to get a new 3gs iphone from Apple.

Depending on the age of your phone, £146 sounds like a lot, however it will have a new battery and be just like a new phone. If i recall correctly the warranty replacement iphone my dad got from apple was just like a new sealed item, however it just was'nt in an apple box and obvioulsy no charger, manual or headphones.

I feel for you. I have dropped mine twice onto a hard floor and both times it landed on the corner with no damage (Very Lucky)

I bet this would make over £200 on Ebay even with a damaged screen and you could put that towards a new iphone 4 (£500 from the Apple Store sim free)

Think of it as a christmas present to yourself

Looks like I'll have to use e-bay. Found someone who does it for £25 which doesn't seem too bad :)

Thanks again.

Good Luck. Don't forget to use Quidco for Ebay normally about 4% of purchase price
