Welcome to Vodafone Community
i have had my device in the case that came with it (pre order one) and have had no crack appear on the screen as of yet, i would imagine that a cracked screen may not be covered by your warranty..
If i have helped please feel free to click on the Thumbs Up below
Yes. You probably are correct. Will be interested in what the repair engineer thinks. Dont want to send it to a third party repair shop. I believe its not an easy fix.
