Like a dummy I didn't have my otterbox case on my phone this particular day and of course dropped it and shattered the screen, the phone works I can see everything but don't have the insurance so does anyone know if the apple store replaces the screen for a fee and how much or do they just offer new phone for 199?
Thanks

They do replace screens, but if you renew your contract, I’ll probably be the same (or cheaper) to get a new phone. The 5s is $200 with contract and the 5c is $100 with contract.

Apple takes phone calls? I thought you could only make an apt at the genius bar? don't really want to do that unless I know, the mall is about 45 min away.

If you're so inclined you can buy the parts and fix it yourself, might save some money.

Absolutely. I have heard them some times offer you a refurb for $200 when your screen is cracked but I don't think it is a standard policy.

They will replace it for $149. I've done it, twice. Just make an appointment at the Genius bar and they'll do a little paperwork and hand you a new (refurbished) one.
