I accidentally dropped my iPod and cracked it pretty badly. Everything still works perfectly, maybe because I have a screen protector on. How much does Apple Store charge for replacing screen (since it's out of warranty by few months)? Are there any good sites to get the replacement screen?

The Apple device repair page (http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=servicefaq&geo=United_States&product=ipod) says $149

Here is ifixit's guide but iFixit still sells it for $90! http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Installing-iPod-Touch-4th-Generation-Front-Panel-Replacement/3639/1

EDIT: Also found a $25 one on Amazon. It has pretty good reviews. Here it is http://www.amazon.com/iTouch-Digitizer-Touch-Screen-Assembly/dp/B004GVYXP2/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1321360034&sr=8-3

You will have to replace it yourself for it to be cheap.

Sorry to hear about your cracked screen.

Can I buy just the digitizer; like this? http://www.ebay.ca/itm/280772664035?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_5074wt_1037
I'd prefer to buy from eBay since I have PayPal.

I guess I have to buy the whole screen. I'll try to fix the screen by myself, so where can I get replacements on eBay?
