Default broke my phone, what do i do

my iphone 4S just broke, it's finished, don't even think a new screen would fix it, but even still, probably would cost more to fix than it's worth I'm guessing.

So do I just get a new iphone 4S? order an iphone 5 and wait a month while using a crappy old phone I can get from my mom?

Also, the insides still work, the screen just doesn't work because of the way it's broken, can the people at the att store transfer my numbers for me?

Take it to the Genius Bar at an Apple store. They might hook you up. Even if you pay a small fee for a refurb 4s it will sell on ebay for good coin after you upgrade.

Have you gone to the AT&T store to see if they have any iPhone5's? My wife broke hers Friday morning (how odd since that was the street date hummmm) and the store had a ton in stock. It would have cost her $350 for a new 4s (which she already had) or $450 for a 16gb 5...she traded in her phone and got $100 for it and got the 5...

Survivor for iPhone 4 - Griffin Technology

I strongly suggest you look into getting one of those. I also broke my screen for my iPod and slapped this bad boy on my new one. Love it! It is a pain in the ass to get on and off though so I wouldn't plan on taking it off. Ever.

It is great if you have small children. My 18 month old loves to chuck it across the room. You would think I could keep it away from him but no, he has a 3 year old brother who finds it hilarous and is a good climber.

This happened just a few minutes ago so they're closed, but i plan on being there when they open in the morning in case they have some or get a new shipment in.

The only thing that would have done for me is prevented it from getting in the situation because of its bulk, this was a freak accident. Fell out of my pocket in a recliner and disappeared inside, found it stuck between the hinges inside and getting it out shattered the screen and took a huge chunk out of it near the light sensor

Sometimes broken phones still go for over $100 on ebay

Yea, I already messaged the guy on here who buys them to see what he'd give me and someone I went to high school with owns an iPhone repair place, so he might give me top dollar for it for parts, or even to fix and sell it himself.

Just sucks because I sold my old iPhone a few weeks ago, really wish I had it with all my phone numbers I now no longer have.

Anyone know if they can transfer the numbers off my phone at the AT&T store without he screen working at all?

Shouldn't you be able to plug it into your PC and create a back up from there?

You have to enter the passcode on your phone, which is hard to do when your screen in done.

It just happened to me, lost pictures from the chelsea game, and many baseball games this summer

Oooooooooooooooo snap

Totally just remembered that I copied my contacts into my iPad just in case like 6 some months ago, while there are some new numbers I won't have anymore, at least I've got most of them

every idea here is worth a shot. i personally have had bad luck with apple when it comes to fixing my phones and laptops, but I hear way more success stories then negatives.

i have an iphone 3 with a crack screen, i have a full upgrade in a month.

Don't you have your contacts saved in iCloud?

i never really looked into how the icloud works, so I probably never set it up. I got it so a picture taken on my phone shows up on my ipad, but once it did that, I never looked into it anymore
