    Dear friends,

    Thank you for your helps. But, I solved the problem in a different way. I went to Apple Store and talked with a service representative at GeniusBar. Actually, I was not sure that they would help me or accept selling a new one without plan. Because, I have called the service line of Apple and the tech rep told me that repair costs $250(flat rate) +$200 part price. And there is no way to buy a new one without buying a plan with it. But, I've already 2 plans from ATT(1 prepaid, 1 contract) and of course didn't want to get the 3rd one. I told about the issue to the GeniusBar guy, then he checked the phone for liquid damage. After seeing that it's clear, he told me that I'm eligible to buy the new one w/o plan by paying the same cost and they'll keep my old one. I accepted and bougth the new one for $300+tax.

    I know it's ridiculous, they didn't even give me the accesories of new one, and this purchase didn't make the warranty extended. But, instead of getting it repaired with a fake screen (as I heard and read this process mostly makes the home button idle and of course the warranty terminated), doing it this way made more sense.

    Apple knows the way of better-earning. They're getting the li'l damaged phone and repairing it with a little cost then selling as refurb for $250+tax with plan. Plus they take the money from new purchase( about $320). Therefore they make the profit more than $600 instead of $450 repair cost.



    Anyway, I imediately bought a Incase brand hard-case and lots of screen protector sheets. And I know that I will be much more careful from now on.



    Hope you never have this type of problem and don't have to deal with these stuff.



    Regards.

There is an iPhone repair service or an iphone repair guide, if you want to do it yourself or have a tech-savy friend do it for you. The part is readily available on Ebay.

How to fix my iphone 4 display


You did not describe exactly how it is broken, but assuming it is a hardware issue (physically broken) you can contact apple repair.

Here is their repair page;

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.

My iphone was broken the glass panel..is it repairable or not? If,how much will it cost the glass panel?


Yes, the glass panel can be replaced on all iPhone models. Apple charges $199 to complete this service. However, if you have an iPhone 2g/3g/3gs the broken panel can be replaced relatively easily from home for around $20. If you have an iPhone 4, I would recommend having apple replace the glass as the glass is now attached to the LCD (making self repair much more difficult and cost prohibitive).

I drop my iphone 3g 16gb and i got no signal


If the phone still powers up with a good screen then your probably damaged your internal antenna. This can be replaced for $30-$50 at most cell repair centers.

Broken touch screen glass


If the touch screen is broken you need to get the digitzer and front lens replaced. I recommend having it done professionally but you can find out how to do it yourself online.

After replacing the screen on my iphone.....


Looks like your backlight is broken, if you had the same issue before it could be a broken logic board. The screen is not too hard to replace or to reconnect. There is a stepby step guide too that explains a little bit at eachstep how todisassemble the iphone2.gif properly : iPhone screen repair. There are also third party iphone repair companies that do it for you.
