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;)

SOURCE: cracked touch screen

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.

SOURCE: I have a iphone 3g

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!

Here is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iphone. a and replace the glass. Once it is open it's as easy as prying the old glass off the front assembly and installing a new one, the parts are available on ebay.

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.

How do i fix my iphone 5 screen


You could purchase some iPhone 5S screens off sites like eBay. There are also some videos on YouTube that show you how to. But I would recommend that you change it yourself, only if you are nifty with small tools. Professional help normally works well.

Cracked iPhone 5 screen


A cracked screen on an iPhone 5 needs to be sent in for repair at the Apple store. Although you may have to wait a few days to get your iPhone back. There are other places to send but you will be spending a lot and taking risks.

Dropped my iPhone and cracked my screen how hard would it be to replace the screen myself


The best thing to do (in my opinion) is going to a professonal to fix it, you might get hurt taking it off or it could get worse. Try bringing it to a phone store where you can find help.

Dropped iphone screen cracked line across bottom of screen will not unlock now


You must change screen and digitizer. This will cost about 70$ if you open it by yourself.

If you open it up:

1. You need small screwdriver
2. Suction cup, smaller the better.
3. Small "sharp" object possibly plastic if you have.

4. Now start by opening the 2 screws bottom of the phone.
5. Use suction cup on the screen AND SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY lift it up.
6. There are connectors (flexes) you must use small object to get those open.
7 Now the screen and digitizer is out.

8. Start going back and put the new digitizer in place. Remember to put those flexes back on.

Hope it helps.
