    Has anyone seen this before.

    This is what happened to me:

    Got out of my, took couple of pictures (cold weather), kept the phone on table, picked the phone, switched on the TV and while I was messaging the screen started to crack.... I was literally seeing it crack in my hands....

    Possible cause - Cold weather outside... warm weather inside....

    Note the small bristles near the pressure points... .I see this being the cause

    Samsung says they can not do anything about it. It is outside their warranty etc.

    Wow, that is a lot of cracks. Did you buy Assurion or another insurance? They should replace it

    Then maybe you have to replace both the LCD screen and the digitizer touch panel.

    Well I believe you. However, that picture looks like someone went to town on the phone. Cold weather will cause that.. or a drastic change in temp. Ever take a glass pan right out of the oven and run cold water through it? Same concept here. I didn't read the rest of the posts but I really hope you got insurance on the phone. Good luck!

    It's usually a new phone. However, it all depends on what Asurion has in stock. If the phone is in high demand they may give you a refurb. But having a refurb phone is better than having a broken phone.

    Just like to report that my phone fell from waist height and landed face down in gravel leaving a deep scratch a quarter inch long in the screen protector. No cracks no scratches. Just a toast screen protector and some nicks in my Otterbox.
    Not all the phones are bad!
