Despite the harsh smack it took, the phone still functions properly, but, alas, the screen is cracked. A spiderwebbing mass that expands laterally across the screen originating about midway up the side of the unit.
So, what does one do?
- Buy a new phone? Hello! Have you seen the economy?
- Show up at the Apple Store and beg for mercy? Possible, but the closest Apple store is over an hour away. There are two in the DFW area. One downtown and the other in Plano.
- Try and fix it myself? There are vendors for replacement screens on the net. The procedure is arduous, but not impossible.
So, I think I will look into option three, as it should be the cheapest alternative, and involve the least amount of downtime.
I will let you know how it goes.
