As many as a quarter of iPhone owners are walking around with a broken screen, according to new figures.

Mobile-phone insurance Web site MobileInsurance.co.uk (which obviously has a vested interest here) asked iPhone owners whether their blower's display is currently broken, smashed, or cracked in any way, to which 23 percent yes.

The average length of time people have been putting up with their damaged display? Six months.

Most people said they hadn't gotten around to fixing their screen, with roughly equal numbers saying they weren't insured, couldn't afford to fix it, or were happy to live with the damage. Of those with a broken screen, 31 percent said they'd probably never bother to fix it.
