Hey guys,

Does anybody know if Apple does cracked screen replacements on iPhone 4's if they are passed their warranty period? I'll be travelling till the end of July and my warranty would have expired then and prefer to do it when I get back.

In general, a cracked screen probably isn't a fault that'd be covered under warranty. But Apple does do a swap-out for a fee. Fee varies depending on the device but is less than normal retail pricing.

We sadly have an iPhone 4 with a cracked screen. Already a replacement for one that got drowned a few months ago. One crack in the top left corner on Saturday, then over night another hairline crack from top to bottom, I presume from cold in Melbourne.

Obviously, once they're cracked they're compromised and more cracks will appear.

Is is the same $250 replacement fee during the warranty period as we paid for the drowned one?

$250 is the fee for service for repairs classed as "out of warranty". The reason may be due to damage or neglect, or simply that the warranty period has passed.

I got my cracked iPhone 4 replaced for free, because I said the home button was a bit sticky sometimes too.
