    Anyone got experiences of this?

    My quote of £150 was from Carphone Warehouse. £250 from Timpsons. Total joke. EE (my provider) said they would have to send it off to give me a quote which is a joke too.

    How much have you guys paid to fix a cracked screen? Assuming you did fix it. At this rate I won't be.

    I did . Only went and shut my car door with my pocket still in the door and it just crushed the thing.

    I'm pretty sure the screen alone costs about £150 for a genuine Samsung unit.

    Most insurance services are quite bad when it comes to phones

    £199 seems to be the oing rate in the repair shops as they have to replace the whole screen.

    Most insurance costs about £8 a month plus a £50 excess for a claim. Unless you break your phone once a year or more it's cheaper to just pay for it.
