    Default Screen crack....oh man...

    I was just wondering... is it possible to replace thescreen on the iphones? I got a hair line crack on the right side of my phone through the whole screen from top to bottom... it still works perfectly fine... i just like it to be perfect... and before i go out and buy a new one... i want to see if there is anything i can do to fix it.

    A couple questions.

    1. Can I replace the screen?
    1a. If yes where can I buy the screens from

    2. Is it easy to replace, would I be able to replace it (Im a hardware noob.) or would i have to seek professional help?

    3. Is this way even worth it? or am i better off just buying a new iphone?

    Thanks

    Remy

    Well, your first step in all of this should be going down to the Apple store and seeing if they will replace it for you. I know that they are not supposed to, but that doesn't mean that they won't. Just don't say that you dropped it, that would be counted as accidental damage which isn't covered, then even the nicest "genius" won't be able to do anything for you. Say that you took it out of your pocket and saw the crack, and you have no idea how it could have happened if you had a case on it ;P . Above all else, be persistent, if previous reports are any indicator, you should have no problem as long as you stick to the story and don't admit accidental damage.

    As far as replacing it yourself, I would have to insist that you don't try. Someone who is describing themselves as a "hardware noob" would probably not be skillful enough to open the iPhone. This isn't your average phone. Look all around your iPhone. See any screws? Nope, that's the problem.

    Sorry it's not a pretty price. Check apples website and read the fire print on iphones. It states out-of-warranty repairs are flat 249$ so 50$ for a repairs job is alright. of course a camera or battery is cheaper

    Good Luck!
