I have a refurbished iphone. Did NOT have insurance and too late to buy any.
Just DROPPED my phone and the front glass shatttered. What are my options? I imagine I have to purchase a new phone. Help! Any suggestions?

Apple out of warranty replacement is $199.
Schedule an appointment with the Genius bar at your local Apple store... ask them very nicely, they may replace it under warranty. If not, it will be $199.

Make an appointment at the Genius Bar it will save you time. www.apple.com/retail
You never know if they will replace it for free. Just be honest, polite.... It is all up to the Genius who is working with you. In the worst case, $199 which is still better than a new iPhone.
Good Luck! (They have done some amazing things for me where I thought I might be buying a new computer due to a spillage of Diet Coke on the keyboard)

Apple will replace your iPhone for $199 out-of-warrenty. If you bring the phone in, they may even replace it for free. However, don't get your hopes up.
