Question about Apple iPhone 5
The screen on my iPhone 5 started with a small crack on the edge and is progressively getting worse. I am newish to Oahu and cannot find a reasonably priced repair shop. I have watched the repair video and it seems doable.....any feedback?
It isn't the most hard thing to do but it involves removing quite a few parts and if you don't have a good past in fixing technical devices like computers or something you might not be the best person to do it. I'm not sure the price but I do know apple does offer a screen repair service I believe. If I am wrong then I'm not sure. I hope this helps;)

You can replace the screen yourself, or have a company replace the screen for you. If you are patient and handy with tools, I would purchase a new crystal screen (just the screen without the LCD\Digitizer), and replace it yourself. If you order from a company, this will cost you almost $200USD. There are tips online on how to replace the screen yourself with a plexiglass screen, but I'm assuming you don't want to do this.

I recently had the same problem. You can buy the glass by itself (which you already know), but then you would have to chisel away all of the glass from the digitizer which is really risky, difficult, and may ruin the digitizer in the end. If your dropped your iPhone 3G and the glass cracked, you will need to purchase a new glass display AND digitizer. They will come together as the digitizer will already be glued to the glass display. This will cost you about $70 before shipping. If you are doing the repair yourself, you may want to consider getting a pry tool to help you take it apart (about $4). There are some youtube videos by PDA parts that show you how to take apart the phone. I ended up getting my glass display and digitizer from Mission Repair, as it comes with the adhesive strips you will need to afix the display to the frame. I got my pry tool from PDA Parts. Due to the lack of information out there about what to do when the glass on your iPhone 3g cracks, I ended up making a website to help people out. Soon I will have a video tutorial and as well as written instructions with pictures on how to replace the glass and digitizer yourself. The site is http://3gcrackedglass.com Good luck with the repair!

You need to remove the digitizer. Which means you have to open the phone remove the old digitizer and replace with the new crack free digitizer.
