    Oh dear. Is it fixable? My partner recently smashed the screen on his iphone and we got a kit to swop the screen off ebay for about £3.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:35 pm

      Hubby bought another screen for a fiver – its kind of fixed, although the bottom bit isn’t working still….eeek!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:35 pm

      I know 🙁

    Oh dear, a sorry end, hope the replacement is even better or can it be fixed?

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:36 pm

      Its going through repairs now via hubby but think it needs a bit more before it works properly

    Aw no 🙁 are you able to get the screen replaced? X

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:36 pm

      Yep – hubby is trying to fix it. Its almost there (I Hope!)

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:37 pm

      I know 🙁 I can’t believe it. I’m soo addicted to it.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:39 pm

      Oh yes, I am lost without it working properly.

  4. bluebirdsunshine August 19, 2012 / 7:15 am

    Boo! New shiny replacement on its way I hope!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:37 pm

      I was waiting for the iphone 5 but think I might have to buy one sooner.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:37 pm

      I know! It smashes instantly doesn’t it? I’m amazed it stayed intact though.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:38 pm

      I know 🙁 I am a complete apple devotee.

  5. SAHMlovingit August 19, 2012 / 7:33 am

    Noooooooo! I’ve been there…I think I may have also cried. Hope you get it fixed. Think I paid about £40 to get mine done.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:38 pm

      Hubby tried himself at the weekend but think it needs a digitizer something or other…so going to have another bash this week.

  6. Erica Price August 19, 2012 / 7:47 am

    I’m dreading this happening to me – dropped it so many times.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:39 pm

      Me too. It usually bounces! I think maybe this time it had just had enough.

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:39 pm

      I know…so awful 🙁

  7. Nikki Thomas August 19, 2012 / 8:13 am

    Oh dear!! I would be very sad if I did that to mine!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:40 pm

      I think I’m going to buy a case for it …like people kept suggesting 🙁

  8. Jo Bryan August 19, 2012 / 8:51 am

    Ouchy, I would be feeling so sad if it were me, hope you get a new one soon. xx

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:41 pm

      Thank you. I’m hoping someone out there will buy me an iphone 5 🙂

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:41 pm

      I know, it kind of works now but not properly.

  9. An Exeter Mum August 19, 2012 / 9:57 am

    Not a good week for you then. Hope you have some kind of insurance to cover it!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:42 pm

      Thats the worst of it…I cancelled it 2 months ago because nothing had happened for 2 years!

  10. Kel August 19, 2012 / 10:50 am

    Ooopppss

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:42 pm

      Big ouch 🙁

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:43 pm

      I know, I may have looked at it in disbelief when I first saw it.

  11. Susan August 19, 2012 / 1:29 pm

    Bloody iPhones. Think we all have a pic just like that in our collection

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:43 pm

      I thought they were meant to be shatter proof 🙁

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:44 pm

      Thank you 🙂

  12. Louise Lloyd August 19, 2012 / 4:59 pm

    Oh no 🙁 this would upset me greatly – hope its easy to fix (I have been told the Apple store is great if you visit them with a broken phone)

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:46 pm

      I think I’ll be going there very soon if hubby can’t sort it.

  13. Sue August 19, 2012 / 5:01 pm

    I’d be devastated if that happened to my phone! Hope you got it fixed or replaced!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:44 pm

      Thank you 🙂 I was completely in denial for a bit and kept trying to convince myself it was the plastic cover that had gone (even though I have no plastic cover on it!!)

  14. notanottinghillmum August 19, 2012 / 6:15 pm

    I SO relate to this. Dropped mine in the loo 2 days ago ! Luckily I never bothered to upgrade my phone so can upgrade now without having to fork out for a new phone. Also luckily a night in the airing cupboard brought it back to life enough to back it up on the computer before the screen died totally. You may find you can still back yours up even if you can’t see anything?!?

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:45 pm

      Hubby has replaced the screen but its not completely right yet. As soon as he fixes it I need to do a big back up!

  15. Elaine Livingstone August 19, 2012 / 6:57 pm

    thats the draw back of these small portable devises, easy to damage. hope it is sortable

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:46 pm

      Thank you – its been very good to me till now. This may have been about the 5th time I’ve dropped it.

  16. helloitsgemma August 19, 2012 / 7:57 pm

    oh no :((( disaster!

  17. LauraCYMFT August 19, 2012 / 8:24 pm

    Oh (insert a profanity here) Is it insured? I used to always drop my phone but since I got a smart phone I have been sooo careful!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:47 pm

      I had insurance for 14 years and then cancelled it 2 months ago because I never claimed! I couldn’t believe it 🙁

  18. momoftwosalums August 19, 2012 / 8:31 pm

    Oh no!!!!! That is awful! So is it fixable??!!

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:48 pm

      I think so…just need the right glass which hubby is looking for.

  19. MsXpat August 19, 2012 / 8:50 pm

    Oh no! How did that happen?

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:48 pm

      I dropped it at work on some very hard looking tiles 🙁

    • notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:48 pm

      It really was 🙁

  20. Claire Jeffreys (@claireejeffreys) August 20, 2012 / 6:34 am

    Oh dear. Those blooming iPhones break so easily, don’t they?

  21. notmyyearoff August 22, 2012 / 2:49 pm

    They do they dooo!

  22. TheBoyandMe August 25, 2012 / 8:33 pm

    This is why I can’t understand why they don’t put gorilla glass in iPhones, iPads and iPods. They cost enough money, surely they deserve unbreakable glass?

    Thanks for linking up
