Iphone 5 Front Screen Broken


You could visit your local Apple Store. To repair the screen runs around $149 dollars and takes around half an hour. They will also probably offer to replace the entire phone or around $229 dollars. Had a co-worker with the same issue last week and the above is what happened to him. Hope that helps!

How to repair your iphone screen


Advice from someone who has broken every model
With apologies to Sir Jony Ive, I have managed to break every version of Apple's iPhone, in one way or another. From getting water in the original iPhone's dock to dropping and shattering an iPhone 6 within one day of its release, I've done it all. Heck, my iPad even took a face-plant on the sidewalk once, resulting in shards of glass everywhere.

But to date08846672588d $0 to get each device repaired. Now that's pretty much because Apple's Genius Bar staffers did me a solid, each and every time I got a case of the dropsies (a string of favors that I imagine will end with this story.)

Still, if you've got a broken iPhone screen - depending on the model - there is more than one way to get it fixed.

Original iPhone

Seriously? Just upgrade it. If you're still lugging around a seven-year-old handset, you probably also have a seven-year-old cellular plan. Carriers will give you an iPhone 5C for free, and your plan will still be cheaper. And no, your original iPhone isn't worth money - unless it's sealed in the box, comes with another, opened box original iPhone, and a souvenir gift bag-all in mint condition.

iPhone 3G (and 3GS)

See above. But in case you were wondering, my iPhone 3G screen held up just fine - including when I put it in the washing machine.

iPhone 4 (and 4S)

Sadly, see above, again. But the real problem here isn't that you can't get these screens replaced, because you actually can. It's just that these older phones are officially obsolete, unable to load the newest versions of iOS. And, in addition, it's currently less expensive to buy an iPhone 5S ($99) than it is to fix a broken screen on these older models ($149 each, except for iPhone 4S, which costs $199). These repair prices were quoted by Apple, and tend to be higher than third party repair services or do-it-yourself options. But still, it's less expensive to simply upgrade to a new handset.

Still, if you like the challenge of doing it yourself, this guide by iFixitcan help you field strip your iPhone like it was a wide-mouthed bass. But before you rip into it, grab a display replacement kit, which has all the tools and hardware you need and typically costs less than $20.

Alternatively, if, like me, you broke iPhone 4's rear glass cover, you can easily swap it out, and get some pretty cool colored or brushed aluminum replacements in the process.

iPhone 5 (and 5S)

Apple's out-of-warranty cost for replacing these handsets' screens is $129, which again, begs the "why not upgrade" question. But in this instance, the answer to that might be because your iPhone 5 is still too new to toss - and I'd argue that even if you can upgrade, this phone is still plenty powerful and worth holding onto (at least as a backup).

Replacing the iPhone 5 on your own is also a little more involved than its predecessor, invoking the need for special suction tools, as iFixit demonstrates. For $59, the company provides everything you need to fix your broken iPhone 5 screen, but if you have a busted iPhone 5C or a smashed up iPhone 5S, make sure you get the proper kit - they aren't all the same. (In fact, the replacements for the colored and Touch ID sensor phones cost $89.)

As the costs of replacement parts soar, it might be worth considering having someone else fix up your iPhone. A local third-party repair shops that I contacted recently quoted just over $100 to replace my shattered iPhone 5 screen. Yup - I've broken one of those, too. Well, my wife did, a month after I broke my brand new iPhone 6.

I dropped my iPhone and the screen is shattered. I don't want to pay for another phone. What should I do? The screen is cracked only at the top so it is still usable, although I'd rather have it fixed.


somebody has to open the iPhone and replace the part. The cheapest way is to do it your self and you should get aways with around $70. The part is available on ebay. If you want to pay to have a service do it for you there are third party iPhone Screen Repair Services. To try to do it yourself, here's a iPhone Repair guide on how to disassemble an iPhone. As you can see from the guide, this is not quite that easy. Maybe a tech savvy friend can do it for you.

The glass screen of my iphone is shattered - is it repairable or do I need to buy a new one? Phone works fine


It is repairable. I recommend having it done professionally. You can do it yourself but I have seen multiple issues with people messing up their iphones doing that,

Cracked screen


on a 3g iphone the glass/digitizer replacement is pretty easy, definitely much less than replacements of ATT or Apple if you can do it yourself, there are iphone repair guides websites that guide you through the repair step by step, but you should have done something like this before.

Battery gets hot and won't hold a charge; plus shattered LCD screen


the glass and LCD can be fix and replaced but the main-board heating up is saying that the board needs to be replaced but you should just purchase new one.
