    So I dropped my iPhone 4 and my screen became crooked. The same thing happened to my Mrs. as well but hers is much worse than mine.

    This is my iPhone 4 with the crooked screen, the arrows show where the screen is bent. Anyone know if this is an easy fix by simple taking the phone apart and readjusting the screen, or will I have to replace the entire screen?

    Take it to the Apple Store. There are 7 in Sydney vs the 3 in Melbourne :)

    I was hoping to fix it myself as the phone is out of warranty

    Also, you may as well pay the $145 something replacement fee from Apple rather than get some unauthorised person to fix it.

    You can get a replacement screen + glass (you need to buy both, they are glued together) on eBay but you need to take the WHOLE iPhone apart.
