MINI PENNY: The Blue iPhone

The Blue iPhone

I'm sure some of you remember back in March when I mentioned I had broken my iPhone 4. I suffered through four months of a broken front and back panel (which I admittedly almost got used to!) before finally deciding to have my glass replaced last weekend.

Naturally, being a bit of an Apple nerd, I've always admired the Colorware custom phones and computers and have oogled at the DIY kits found on sites like iFixDirect. Heck, when I saw Little Cheif Honeybee's pink version, I fell in love.

So I opted to check out one of those little hole-in-the-wall "We fix your broken phone" type places. I was a bit skeptical at first, for obvious reason. After working for Apple for two years, I've heard some horror stories of third party repairs. The girl working said that it would either be $90 for the front screen, but if I had both sides replaced, it would be $120 and I could choose whichever color I'd like.


It turned out lovely and is getting lots of compliments. The only downside is that now I don't want to put a case on it, which means I'm most likely going to break it again. Who knows. Once a butterfinger, always a butterfinger!
