Jenna!

Oh how I’ve missed you :(.
Somehow, when I made changes to my google reader a year ago, I accidentally left you off my new list, which meant I wasn’t getting my daily dose of Jenna-ness. Knew something was missing from my life!
But now all is right in the world again; I just have to make up for lost time in trying your recipes. Why do you make it so hard to choose what to make first?!

Love from an old friend,
Katie
P.S. Sending well-wishes to your poor phone. He (she?) looks like he could use a hug.

Agh! It’s happened to me before, too. Hope it still works! I used mine cracked for a few weeks, then found a place in Dallas that replaced my screen for $50…

Alexa @ The Girl in Chucks January 24, 2011 at 10:59 am

Oh noes! The same thing happened to my co-worker a few weeks ago.

I think he got a quote for a screen replacement for about $45….but if and when it happens to me, I am looking at it as an omen to upgrade to the iPhone 4… ;)

Mary (How to not be...) January 24, 2011 at 11:01 am

Oh no!! I’ve had 3 iphones & broke the screens on the first two within a week of buying them….hopefully it’s still functioning! & at least you have lemon cake!

Tiffany January 24, 2011 at 11:06 am

Oh no! As some have said before me, I’ve done it before. Mine smacked onto a sidewalk and shattered almost the whole screen. I went to AT&T and they nicely recommended a kiosk in the mall that replaced the screen. I think it was around $40 or $60 (much cheaper than a new phone!) and took less than an hour! You should do some research…it might be salvageable.

I hate to be negative nancy because that truly truly sucks. But have you had a CASE for your iphone???? I cannot tell you how many times my iphone has gone flyyyyyyyying out of my hands to come crashing onto the pavement, concert, tiles, glass, you name it. Screen face down too! and my phone still looks good as new (its 1.5yrs old).

Otter Case rocks…….I’ve dropped my phone a LOT…and have even gotten it wet – it is so awesome and worth the purchase!

Amy January 24, 2011 at 11:09 am

Oh NO! I’ve lived in fear of that happening to me as well (i.e.: on Friday I stepped out on my porch to run & pulled out my phone to bring up the c25k app … and dropped the whole darn thing on the *cement* porch. Good grief.) Hugs to you…. go enjoy some chocolate!

I had the same thing happen and at the apple store they replaced my entire phone for just over $100. I’m in Canada, but I’m sure it’s the same there.

I agree… bound to happen :( SO sorry… a touchscreen phone is no fun without the touchscreen. BUT I have heard that they sometimes come back to life, even after being shattered?? I had a friend who used her shattered iphone for months…

Hey, my roommate stepped on my iPod touch a while back and I found this place: http://rotten-apples.net/, which replaced the screen for $50 or so. It was super fast too. Good luck, it totally sucks!

hi jenna, the same thing happened to my husband’s phone. he even had a case, so don’t feel bad about that. he took it to the apple store, told them a (mostly) true sad story and they fixed it for free. make those pretty baby blues as sad as you can and good luck!

Jillian @ Reshape Your Life January 24, 2011 at 12:00 pm

Oh man!! That has happened to my fiance TOO MANY times (3 to be exact)! Some places offer to fix it for about $100 bucks. Then I suggest investing in an otterbox!

Nooooooooo! That happened to me last Sunday, smashed on the cement, and it was like slow-motion watching it slip from my fingers, no reflexes whatsoever. I have tear in my eye for you, knowing that pain, and a wish in my heart hoping the Apple peeps are as kind to you as they were for me!

Quisha January 24, 2011 at 12:42 pm

This happens to all of the iPhones unfortunately. I upgraded to a 4 and got a case that covers all edges fully and the new ones are made with airplane glass so it’s supposed to help. Notice how they crack in the corners? Mmhmm. No fun!

Did the same thing with my camera – right before Christmas too when moola is even tighter than usual. I just kind of stared at it and kept pressing buttons, thinking it would come back to life…

After staring at it for about a day, I had to give in to reality ;)…

oh wait – I also just did it to the front bumper of my car! Shattered – $4000 later…holy God, how am I NOT out on the streets yet?!!

My heart goes out to your phone!

Courtney @ The Granola Chronicles January 24, 2011 at 2:37 pm

I’m actually surprised that I haven’t broken my iPhone yet! I just got an iPad and have been taking super good care of it – it’s in a huge case, which I’m sure defeats the point of it being so slim, but I’m so nervous about dropping it!

Reply

Jennifer January 24, 2011 at 2:49 pm

That happened to me a little over a year ago. I was on my way to the airport (going to San Francisco for the first time) and dropped my phone. The screen looked like yours. I was bummed during the flight, but managed to live with it for a couple of months until I got my iPhone 4. You’ll get through this!!

Betsy January 24, 2011 at 2:59 pm

Jenna, this exact same thing happened to me a few weeks ago. It was so very sad. I completely understand how you’re feeling…it just plain sucks! I hope your phone feels better soon. I still use mine with the cracks in it, but I guess I really should visit the genius bar soon!

Did you try going to the Apple store? Once I got my iphone wet and they gave me a new one for free!! If you do get a new one, try the Otter cases. You can actually throw the phone across the room without hurting it (and trust me, this has happened to me by accident).

Reply

Devon (Run Sleep Rinse Repeat) January 24, 2011 at 4:18 pm

I feel your pain.

Mine was shattered on my birthday… & I was heart broken. I heard if you tell the Apple Store that you left it in your car & it got hot, they’ll replace it. IDK if that works in the dead of winter though!

ahhh so sorry! that happened to me last year with my 3G. I was texting and walking (not so smart) and I tripped and the phone went flying. It landed face down on pavement, I heard the shatter, and my heart just dropped. Luckily, I was due for an upgrade so I got the 4G, but gosh. Touch screen phones are killers.

OH wow, Jenna!! I truly feel your pain….THIS JUST happened TO ME!! Except it was my beloved IPOD TOUCH!!! But not shattered….just dead. Liquid…only 30 seconds at most and it’s not responding. I tried the bag of rice trick. Nada…..

Before I give you complete details, let me just say as a mom of 3…this IPOD was/is a true blessing. A splurge last spring that I never allow myself. I have treated it like GOLD. I have a case. I LOVE that I can wash dishes or cook and not hear my kids argue! I love that I can listed to podcasts while doing dishes, or music. The other day I spend 3 hours reorganizing closet/dresser in my 3 yr olds room while listening to like 6 blogging podcasts. I’ve recently been known to say…”Ipod…a mom’s best friend.” (along with chocolate and caffeine). So to say I am SAD is an understatement. I have not full out gotten upset yet, because I am praying hard it flickers back to life (I’ll keep you posted!!). I have heard it sometimes happens after a couple days or even a week. I just can’t bear to think my Ipod days may be over. I LOVED the WiFi!! And my Twitterfic app!! Ahhh…..I digress….

Here is my story. I wish I had left my hot tea travel mug in the van. I wish I had remembered to put my IPOD in it’s case. I brought my travel mug into church with me. Oops can’t have it in sanctuary, so I smuggled it in upright in my purse….not to drink but to save a trip out the van. BIG church…so long walk. I set it down..everything upright…awesome message…service ends, I pick up purse aware of mug, but it must have tipped over somehow. Only a little opening, and I noticed right away liquid in one side of my purse. I panicked beause I had my new texting phone, my new camera…then I saw my Ipod sitting in it…the liquid….wasn’t even submerged. Took it out right away. It was dimly lit. On way home from church it lit up all the way. When I got home I was able to use my Twitter app…and it seemed fine then froze up. Now black. It was low on charge so I just took it out of rice to charge it. I’m hoping and praying….it was very traumatic, but I’m trying not to think of it.

Have a cupcake for me too!!! ;)

I did that — Cost me $250 to get fixed at an Apple Store in Ann Arbor, an hour away. I treated myself to a nice lunch and some shopping while I was there, but it was still very sad.

I have a case that wraps around the front a little. I tell myself that this will protect it next time. Of course, it could just be magical thinking….

Hoping it’s already fixed.

Reply

Erica January 26, 2011 at 8:56 am

Hi Jenna,
I broke mine a few weeks ago… Spent $200 at the apple store to have it replaced. It was worth it though because I have the 32GB 3GS which they aren’t selling anymore.
I highly recommend an Otterbox case. I just bought another one at amazon.com, it’s black/pink. It bulks up the phone a bit, but it really protects it. Anyway, they run about $49, but on Amazon has the black/pink ones for only $14.95 from a store called OEM Planet. I also have the otterbox armband for when I run.

I can’t recommend it enough!!

My husband dropped his iPhone 4 two weekends ago and shattered the screen. He immediately made a Genius bar appt to take it in to get it fixed – they replaced it for free. A few days later a friend of ours cracked hers. We told her what we’d done so she made an appt at the Genius Bar too and also got hers replaced for free. I’m guessing they’ll only do this for folks who’ve not had replacements/repairs before, but I really have no idea. We didn’t ask too many questions as we weren’t expecting it and didn’t want to jinx it!

Good luck!
