Are you absolutely positive somebody else didn't touch your phone? Or even an accident that you're not aware of, like phone in your pocket whilst sitting on it?
Anyhow, really hope you find a satisfactory resolution, sorry to hear of your pains.

I would still send it to Samsung. Even if they don't admit to liability they may still repair it for you. The only thing you lose is time but that's the way I would have gone initially and would go now.

I am absolutely certain no-one else touched my phone and I am mystified why this happened. Like I said if I had accidentily damaged the phone myself I would not have bothered to send it back as I have no insurance coverage. I would have taken it to my local repair shop or local Samsung shop to have work carried out.
I just feel slightly let down even more so with their explanation as I was originally told that water damage and accidental damage would not be covered and was asked if there was any signs of existing damage to the actual phone casing in which there was not.

I think I will jonsie as disgusted with o2's reply.
If I was contracted to them I would seriously consider changing provider after this. Why would I have wasted my time sending it back if I knew that I was not covered !
No physical damage to the phone including any water damage yet they suggest that I have been using the handset excessively.
Will I have to have the phone returned to me first or do you think that o2 will send it direct to Samsung ?

Have you checked the battery to see if it has swollen? if so you could blame the cracked screen on that and get it fixed for free under warranty.
Personally i would'nt bother sending it to Samsung as i know they wont treat it as a warranty fault.

You need to ask them to return it to you and then contact Samsung support.

Now saying that what they previously mentioned is not neccessarily the reason for the damage to my mobile phone as they were not present at the time of when the crack appeared ?

sorry redtitbit must of missed your post.
Ok will do that and note your comments about Samsung and expect that anyway.
If no damage to phone battery shall I just proceed with repairs ? Would Samsung be any different in price do you think.
Looks like I may have to just accept it but feel that the warranty provided is useless.
