You can replace the glass/screen for about $40 on eBay.

We have places around here that will replace them for you for like $60. Only takes them an hour to do it.

Why do they use glass? Couldn't they use something that won't crack the first time you drop it? I know there's stuff out there like that.

That's just something I've never understood.

It's called Gorilla glass. Awesome stuff. I think glass responds better but I'm not sure...

The gorilla glass was in my old Motorola. It responded fine, I just had to change carriers. My Motorola was rattling around in my pocket with spare change, car keys, pocket knife... Never got a scratch.

Never attempted it. But I'm OCD careful with my phone too. Of course now it will get hit by a meteor or something...

Here is the linky to ebay stuff:

The iphones are super fragile, the screen and entire back is glass. I bought the 3g when they first came out, i didnt have it 3 days and i accidentally dropped it while checking pressure in my tires, shattered the screen. They are like carrying an egg around, one small slip and they bust.

I drop my phone on a regular basis, the screen hasn't cracked yet....

I've dropped my 3G, 3GS numerous times, but my 4 accidentally fell off the balcony straight on to the neighbors driveway, it made it without any problems when I went down and got it.

Quite possibly the best case I've had for my iPhones would have to be the Oakley O Matter case for the 3G/S. The new one doesn't compare (IMO), and I've been using a Magpul case for the 4, the only thing that DID happen when it fell off the balcony, is it scraped up the bottom left corner the slightest bit. Can't argue with that, better than having to completely replace a $600-$700 phone out of pocket.
