    I did it! I broke my phone today. Was trying to wait for the iPhone 5 to come out and now this. I'd still wait but the rumor is that it won't be released until late this year do to the Verizon iPhone coming out. Oh well, these things happen. It's cool. It's cool. It's cool. (if I keep telling myself that, it'll be true ;-)

    Big Fat Frown :-(

    You can try bringing it to a local mall. They usally have kiosks that can fix them and will get you by till the iPhone 5 is out.

    You can buy a replacement screen on amazon.com.. It is actually not that hard to change the screens.. I have had my iphone for almost 3 years now and have changed my screen 2 times and have a replacement screen on the way here right now.

    No, not on purpose. There isn't much to tell. I was workning and i fell out of my hoodie pocket onto the cement floor. Think I might go to iFixit and read up on how to change it out.

    Someone has probably posted a video on YouTube on how to replace the screen.

    Amazing. I intentionally destroyed my last iPhone when I upgraded. It was surprisingly hard to break the screen. Hit it multiple times with a pair of 10 inch channel locks before it broke.

    Only in America. Seriously, donate the device if you can't find a use for it.

    Why wouldn't you .....

    I do NOT know why anyone wouldn't send their "OLD" phone to help other's

    CELL PHONE RECYCLING: DONATE YOUR OLD MOBILE PHONE

    http://volunteerguide.org/volunteer/fifteen/cell-phone-recycling.htm

    "Discarded cell phones account for nearly 65,000 tons of toxic waste each year. Cell phone recycling is critical because each improperly disposed cell phone can pollute up to 132,000 liters of water.

    More than 500 million unwanted cell phones are either awaiting disposal in the home, or seeping hazardous lead, mercury, cadmium, brominated flame retardants, and arsenic into the environment. And with new features available every year, a cell phone's average life is now less than 18 months, adding more than 140 million cell phones (and their batteries) to our landfills each year — or 2.5 million toxic mobile phones dumped each week. Because the United States has yet to establish federal regulations requiring mobile phone recycling, only about 10 percent of cell phones are currently being donated or recycled."

    What about helping your "buddy"
    http://www.cellphonesforsoldiers.com/

    Cell Phones for Soldiers was founded by teenagers Robbie and Brittany Bergquist from Norwell, Mass., with $21 of their own money. Since then, the registered 501c3 non-profit organization has raised almost $2 million in donations and distributed more than 500,000 prepaid calling cards to soldiers serving overseas.
