Replacing the screen is now incredibly easy. They went back to the "top-down" construction on the 5, like the 3g and 3gs, unlike the 4 and 4s where you had to take out the motherboard and all (which I've done over 50 times and it's not fun each and every time).

Screen will probably go for 70-100 bucks and you can look up a tutorial on youtube on how to do it...If you are at all good with small electronics it's an easy 3/10 on scale of difficulty.

Sorry about your phone... But you should have put a case on it man!
Im pretty sure i have applecare but not applecare +. lol i ordered screen protectors off ebay and a case but they havnt come in yet, should have just bought one in store
