    Much sadness here. I'll be driving 155 miles to the nearest Apple Store tomorrow. Because I have AppleCare, the gas will cost me more than the replacement cost for the phone. Maybe I should get a case while I'm at it. (Sigh)

    Good thing you had AppleCare+, I've purchased it for every device except my first iPad, on which I dropped a camera lens, cracking the screen. It's a good thing your iPhone appears to be operating correctly so you could back it up before heading off to the Apple Store. Let us know how it goes. I'm assuming you'll get a refurbished iPhone as a replacement.

    Hi TP - sorry for your accident - best of luck! :) Wife has the regular iPhone 6 w/ a case that surrounds the edges and back, guess somewhat protective depending on the height of the fall & the surface encountered - assume you are driving to Spokane since you're located in the southeast corner of Washington State - I buy a LOT of wines from your state and many come from that area (as you likely know better than me).

    Hope that all goes well w/ your AppleCare - the charging cable on my MagSafe frayed after 2 years (as shown below) - still had a year left on my AppleCare and after a call to Apple, I was sent a new one which arrived Monday - no charge to me - returned the damaged one w/ a postage-free label.

    Ouch! That would not have been a pleasant feeling tp....my commiserations.
    Your mishap has all the more made me glad that I also took out that extra peace-of-mind cover. Have a safe trip mate!:)

    Hello Twerppoet, that looks like it would really hit the spot about now! I'll have to give Red Robins a try!

    Actually I'm feeling a bit bloated right now. It's been a long time since I ate a full-size burger and fries

    Anyway, the screen is fixed and pretty as new. Now for the long drive home.
