I doubt they will do it on the spot.
Most likely they will charge your $149 and give you a new iphone 4.
And yes, you can also order the parts and do it yourself if you're inclined. The front is not an easy process, the back is piece of cake.

I've done this several times for both the front and back glass (never at the same time).

For the front glass, you can pay the $199 ($149 I think for the iPhone 4) and they will give you a brand new (refurbed) iPhone 4.

For the back glass, they will take it into the back and replace it. Takes them about 10 minutes tops. Doing this cost me $29
