Broken iPhone!


Broken iPhone!
Originally uploaded by Sew Spoiled
This happened after I dropped it. I was carrying to much into the house and I did not realize I grab my phone too. It slipped and fell on the cement. I felt terrible about it. :(
But this story has a happy ending!
I love Apple! I went to the Apple store and showed them the iPhone. I was expecting to pay for a new one or pay for the glass replacement $199 or more! They gave me a new one free of charge. They said it was part of their accident forgiveness program. It is only good once, it is like a Monopoly "get out of jail free card". If you are not an Mac user, you really should be! I will be for life.
As you can see in the picture my old case was not very reliable. I am planning on making a new case but until then, if you have an iPhone case suggestion I would love to read about it. Please post a comment!
Thanks,
Leah

Check out ifrogz.com They have lots of different cases for apple products. I've heard good things about it saving the iPhone/iPod Touch when accidentally dropped.

Nice service! I suggest the Otterbox cases. They are virtually indestructible and I was able to find ours much cheaper on Amazon.

Whew! Glad they replaced it for you; that's awesome! I dropped my iPod Touch and the screen shattered; I had no idea that there might even be a free option. I ended up ordering a new screen of of eBay (it still worked, there was no damage to the touch-sensing mechanism) and replaced it myself. It was hard work, and very terrifying, as I didn't want to cause any internal damage. It worked, though, and looked great. Until a couple of weeks later, when my husband dropped it. The screen damage wasn't as bad and I was too scared to replace it again, so it's still cracked... :(
