Apple Shmapple

Smashed the front of your iPhone?  You may be wondering what the hell to do. After you’ve finished crying you may be inclined to call your insurance company. Once you’ve been told you’re not covered you may be inclined to call the Apple Store to make an appointment. Once you’ve toddled off to your appointment and been told some lies about how they cannot replace the screen and lcd because it’s all connected to the inner components (or some such twaddle) they will brazenly and cheerfully offer you a replacement phone – all for the handsome price of just £120.00.

Whilst I appreciate the fact that you are eligible regardless of where you purchased it, Curry’s, your brother-in-law, back of a lorry etc. what an outrageous price for a cracked screen!  A glass phone? A GLASS PHONE? REALLY?

Alternatively, you can buy a new screen and lcd off eBay for the much more handsome price of £40.00 and get somebody good with fiddly things to fix it for you.  Oh, and invest in a leather case for it, or this won’t be the last time, even if a leather case if reminiscent of those guys who wear their phones like holsters on their belt – the case is worth it.
