    I think it cost $75 to repair the screen. At least that is what I've been told.

    I'm better off buying a new 3g. Or maybe I'll just wait until the so called new one comes out. I still have my 2g so I'm fine.

    the price is 200 dollars to replace the glass. they just give you a refurb in exchange.
