    He said he just found it, I would be a little wary, their site seems to link to dozens of others sites, no phone number or physical address.

    edit they may be all connected to this company

    If is the shop I'm thinking of at the end of the broadway, they have been there for a while and its a proper shop (I think they started up years ago just doing phone facias and unlocking).

    So your phone still works after a 50ft drop apart from the smashed screen? That's quite encouraging IMO!

    Bear in mind, that whilst Apple won't repair it for you under warrenty, if you have it repaired by a non-Apple approved repairer, they (Apple) probably won't offer any warrenty on the rest of the phone after that....

    If I fit a new window into a car, and the owner takes it to the manufacturer for whatever reason and they do anything inside the door where I replaced a window, my company won't offer any warrenty on the workmanship or product we initially fitted - and I doubt Apple is any different!

    Personally, I'd have Apple repair it and claim on your mobile phone insurance - I hope you have some!

    Did you take out an extended warranty? they often cover accidental damage.
