Shattered iPhone Is Not a Pretty Picture...But Lucky Me

 Yesterday at one of my showings, I slipped and fell hitting the concrete with enough force to shatter my iPhone. In the condition below, the phone still worked except for the bits of glass I was getting in and on my fingers.

 A phone call to Gadget Guru and a quick drive to 11000 Owings Mills Blvd. How lucky... this was just a few miles from my listing. Within an hour ...my phone was as good as new. 

Great service, great convenience from the great guys at Gadget Guru.

Lucky me, not that I fell,  that Gadget Guru was available and open on a Saturday afternoon!

Margaret- how timely... I was just thinking about what I would do if my iPhone fell and shattered.  I keep looking at all of the cute iPhone cases out but want something that offers protection.  And, just last week I saw a Mobile van that repairs smartphones in our area!  Glad you didn't hurt yourself and very happy that you could get it fixed so quickly.

Glad you were okay.  The broken phone is much easier to deal with.

Margaret,

As many times as we've met, I don't ever recall seeing you without your iPhone or iPad. Glad you didn't get hurt.

Margaret, You were lucky you didn't break something besides your phone screen. It is good to know who to turn to when you need something like this fixed.

Never mind the phone, how are you?  The phone can be replaced!  I am always dropping my phone.  When I got the iphone, I asked Verizon for the most indestructible case.  They gave me an Otter that covers both the front and back of the phone.   It's a little bulky, but it does the trick.   Please be careful!

Margaret, I took a tumble last year with my iPad. As the buyer scurried over to help me, all I said was "Is my iPad okay?" Fortunately, no damage to either of us.

Sounds like you fared better than your phone during your fall. Also sounds like Gadget Guru is a a pretty good business - that they could repair your iPhone in less than an hour. I don't think we have Gadget Guru in Arizona?
