Dropping your mobile

I dropped my iphone at work the other day, there was a small unoticable crack so i wasn't to bothered.
Few day later and the pixels are now dying and leaving grey lines all over the screen

Take it to an Apple store. apparently they can replace the screen for free. However, you may need a set of tits and long flaxen hair. Unless you spy the gay dude in the corner, then you will be fine.

That's the price you pay for having a crap phone. The smallest of knocks and the screen smashes into a thousand pieces...Good design Apple!
I don't know anyone with an iPhone who hasn't smashed the screen.

I'll stick with my Sony Ericsson that I don't need to wrap in cotton and kittens every time I leave the house!

I've had 2 iPhones and have never smashed either. I've dropped them countless times and they've been fine.

I think something of his would be getting smashed and it's not the phone.
