    It is less than 4 weeks old, my first port of call would be CPW, how did he crack it?

    I cracked my phone screen about a year ago - £50.

    A friend cracked his last week - again £50.

    Looks like £50 is the usual price.

    Plus, they wasnt fixed at the same place - 40 mile radius!

    on the phone to carphone warehouse they say as it was his fault they will charge him 45 quid. She was really helpful but still, how annoying. He paid 90 quid for it only 4 weeks ag

    How many days do you get to take out the phone insurance, is it not 28 days?

    Why doesnt he claim on the house insurance? If he has accidental damage cover.

    The excess may be what? £50?

    Premiums pay go up? Not sure no that..

    But yeah he could sell the broekn phone on eBay - and get a new/better phone off his house insurance

    Yes it is.

    pull this out? is only £7.50 a month.

    Is it the glass/plastic screen or the LCD? outer screen you can just buy another fascia, but most lcd can be bought off of ebay for just over 20 quid and very easy to do yourself.

    Yes it is the plastic/glass screen. It goes from the bottom right hand corner well up past the middle. Its at least a inch long. Its quite thin, i guess what you would call a hairline crack?!!

    yeah mine was on a contract too, but maybe worth having a scout about, look through everything that came with it, any leaflets etc, etc Good luck :thumbsup:

    Is it just the screen protector or the ACTUAL screen//

    without doubt, have a look at some of these, make sure you get one the comes with the tools to remove the screws for the fascia, used to be a t6 star key for most, but not having the phone I couldnt tell you.

    Just to be doubly sure you can always ask one of the sellers - but whats £5? as oppossed to sending it off

    Ebay links not allowed on here, you can post the number of the item though

    rubbish - it wasnt even a specific item number, just do a search for "5300 fascia" theres about 250 of them.

    I think he'd appreciate a nice pink flowery one

    Its cheaper to buy a new phone altogether as u can pick up a 5300 for £39

    I cracked the screen on my phone a while back. Cost me £30 to fix it. Worth it, though - it was a rubbish phone, and it crashed one day while I was writing a particularly long txt message. It did this quite often. Anway, I became rather angry, so I placed it on the floor, took my belt off, swung it around three times to pick up speed, and then smashed the ******* with the buckle. It was a spectacular shot, and I obliterated the screen beautifully.

    Made a bit of a mess of my carpet, and I couldn't speak to any friends for a month. Worth it, mind you.
