    Iphone 3gs cracked screen?
    Today, I dropped my beloved iPhone on the ground, and to my horror, it became horrifically cracked. Everything is still functional, except for the unsightful damage to the glass screen. I've only had the phone for a month. My question, how and where can I get it fixed? For what price? Are there any loopholes with this? Like getting it fixed free under warranty. I'm trying to save as much money as possible, and be discreet.

    Here's a picture of the accident.

    Holy crap.

    Uhm... I don't believe that's covered under the warranty.

    You could try and fix it yourself, although it isn't for the faint of heart.

    I definitely wouldn't be able to fix it by myself. I want to fix it by the weekend before my Dad sees it and flips out.

    Check your local Craigslist, There are literally tons of people who do nothing but iPhone repair, But be prepared to spend anywhere from $50-$120 just depending on who and where you get it done.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm on cragislist now and found someone advertising a $50 dollar repair service. However, I'm a little iffy about it.

    $50 is a good deal. It's really nothing to be iffy about, Call them ask them how many iPhones they have worked on. Just about anyone can do this so there isn't much to worry about.


    Good luck.

    Mission Repair they are in Olathe Kansas. I waited on a repair once. I was in and out in about 20 min. They replaced a digitizer on a 3GS model I had. Charged me $128.

    I live in New Jersey. I'd be able to get to Manhattan though.

    I used Mission Repair to fix the headphone jack issue on my wife's iPhone - great service, fast turnaround, and fixed the out-of-warranty problem. I'd recommend them.
