iPhone 5 Glass Replacement Cost?

A friend of mine broke the glass on her iPhone 5. No Applecare. Does anyone know how much it will cost to have it fixed?

Thanks!

Ouch! I guess Apple Care pays off sometimes. The phone was only $126.

You can go a a repair shop and it'll probably cost under $100. Might void the warranty but it'll be fixed.

What kind of repair shop? Never been anywhere else with an iPhone except the Apple store.

If anyone knows of a place in the RI/MA area that can fix it, that will be great!

Not for an iPhone 5 screen replacement. The replacement screens themselves from third party sellers are well over $200. The typical iPhone 5 screen replacement from a third party cell phone store will run around $300.

There is another thread talking about the price of the assemblies if you'd like to reference that for some more insight on the prices of the iPhone 5 screens

No the phone was 650, you just didn't see that because of the contract.

I guess it depends on the store, but I just received a replacement iphone after cracking my screen. No Apple care, just under the one year warranty. Single crack the width of the phone.

Just get this, and do it yourself, it is pretty straight forward.
Cost $110
