[3/365] Hello 2010, Goodbye iPhone

    Newer Older

    I managed to break my iPhone during a new years party. The are apparently a little more fragile than I thought. Surprisingly broken iPhones go for decent money on eBay, so I'm combining auction photos with my 365 project.

    Strobist - DIY light box and white card stock, bare SB600 at 1/32 through right diffusion panel.

    Dear Mr.Truant, khomaz, LostPizzaBoy, and 2 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Painful indeed. I got a decent deal on a used one from Craigslist as a replacement though. Hopefully this was a one-time deal!

      Money loss... Yes! But now is your chance to get a real phone like a droid. :) Great pic.

      Disaster! What happened? It looks like it was something more serious than an accidental drop.

      shattered ! Awesome ,time to head to the Apple Store with $200 and get it replaced

      It was a less than accidental drop. I was aggrivated at sluggish SMS performance, and a little buzzed. I certainly didn't throw it, and it didn't fall further than it's been dropped before. It just must have hit at the right spot or something...

      I bought a replacement used off of Craigslist, and with what cracked screen iPhones are going for on eBay I think I'm going to break even, which is much better than dropping $200 at the Apple Store!

      I've also been told that ifixit.com has very reasonable glass and screen replacement services if anyone else finds themselves in a similar predicament.

      Check out Otterbox.com for a case.

      I have had one for my old school Ipod 30GB video and it still looks new... waterproof, shock resistant, but a little bulky.

      I also have one for my Blackberry Storm... not that I want a storm, but verizon doesn't support the Iphones yet :(

      Don't these phones cost like $ 300.00 to purchase ?

      And the monthy range is somewhere in the $ 70.00 range

    17. ladyhawker 50 months ago | reply

      Yes, but I think they are worth every penny. :)

      I saw this post today about an iPad and immediately thought of your poor broken iPhone:
