Four possible solutions
1. Remove the Sim Card & Throw the phone away in a recycle bin.
2. Cover the glass with a new screen protector & ignore crack.
3. Take the iPhone into an Apple centre & pay a modest fee to get the next model up (4s) which fixes the problem & gets you better technology.
4. Get a new glass & replace it yourself. Parts & repair guides are numerous on the net. eg. See
It never ceases to amaze me the number of people who bust their Smartphones. Some even regularly.
My son-in-law has dropped 2 in the water while fishing and he should know better as he is a radio technician.
You need to treat this amazing modern technology with respect!
Personally.... I have never broken any of the iPhones I have owned since 2007 and I change phones every 2 years & my wife gets the older technology. So thats 7 years & 4 iPhones!
Perhaps its because, over the years, I have repaired so many electronic/electrical devices.
I do have my phone on me all the time (except when fishing & diving etc) in some pretty harsh environments (e.g. fixing cars & prospecting in outback &... I have chipped the edge of one phone).
I have a respect for my expensive technology and that it has a large flat glass area that pressure or knocks can break. I just take 5 seconds to think ahead as to where I will be using it & I keep a silicone cover & screen protector on it at all times. I move it from my top shirt pocket to my front jeans pocket if bending etc. and the screen always stays on my body side while in the pocket.

    Aren't you a little superior ? ! This was a teenager. I am her stepfather. Her father bought her the phone. She has broken phones before, so I had her on my plan with a used Android-based phone. Daddy decided that wasn't good enough, so all three girls got new iPhones. Hers lasted about a year before she dropped it when bumped by a boy who was rough-housing in the hallway at school. Yes, she should have had the phone in her case and/or in her pocket.

    Yes! After rereading my text I guess you could take it that not intenat way. Was meant to have a humorous side.... & I didn't realise that a teenager was at the other end. In future I'll stay clear of unrelated comments. So, hopefully the problem has been resolved by now! Cheers

    It's fine. I was kidding around, too! I'm typically not obvious enough (or not funny enough, LOL)!

  • NoName Jack May 19, 2014

    Cheers.... Has the phone been fitted with a new glass yet?God.... Wish I could have have had an iPhone when I was a teenager. They didn't even have the brick phone back then. Just the red box on the corner. :)

    No, I'm still shopping around for the best deal in the replacement glass/screen. I've replaced tablet glass/digitizers before, but this will be my first iPhone fix.

    Growing up, we were one family with six children on a party line with at least 4 other families averaging ~3 children each. If you were lucky enough to get a line, the phone wasn't even fast enough to get to YouTube or Facebook!

  • NoName Jack May 20, 2014

    Yeah! I understand.... I assembled my first computer in 1976 when we used an audio tape for mass storage. Obviously I'm showing my age now. At this age (64) I can easily say "Been there Don that"

Can the glass of a whirlpool cerano hob suddenly crack?

You didn't need 'red hot' to simmer. When you got it red hot, and then put the pan on it, the pan sucked the heat out of the ring to fast, and caused stress in the glass causing it to crack. Tops are meant to be used the way you used it. Your fault I am afraid.

The top can be replaced.

Screen protective on the front of it its cracked

I'm afraid the thing you call front glass is the tough screen once it is cracked you need it to be replaced. For an expensive and new tablet I would go to a phone store and ask them what it will cost. For an old or cheap tablet I would buy a new one. Anyway a replacement could cost up to 200 dollar. So don't forget to ask what it will cost in advance. Just to avoid surprises.

this is the cheapest replacement part i could find Digitizer for Asus TF101 Eee Pad Transformer Front Glass Touch Screen...
replacing it yourself is not extremely difficult but it's not a walk in the park. however, having it repaired by someone else is probably not very cost effective since theyll probably charge upwards of 100. you decide, though. i hope i was helpful and good luck!

Replacing the front glass entails completely disassembling the entire TV. Your best bet is to look for a broken TV with a good front glass.

My son threw a ball and hit the screen cracks all over can this be fixed with a new screen or is it junk now really bright light shows through all the crack marks

The front glass is just a protector for the LCD screen. If your TV turns on and the picture looks ok (may be a little color variation around the crack if front glass is pushing on it, variation OK black Bad) If the picture looks within the range described then replace the glass. It is just a piece of standard glass and a pretty easy diy job. If the LCD screen is broken the repair will be more than the replacement cost. Sad fact US TV repairmen make a living wage while the workers that assembled you TV wouldn't be able to buy lunch here with what they made putting it together.

Cracked glass on front glass

if the tv turn on this will tell you that the plasma panel itself is ok. if it is ok then the fron glass is replacable. this is just a standard piece of glass so i really wouldnt spend tons of money hiring someone else to order one and install it.
