    So my girlfriend cracked the front of my iPhone 4 screen pretty bad. Everything works fine it's just got s terrible spiderweb crack all over the front.

    Might as well get the new 4s but what do I do with my 4?

    Do I sell at as is ? Fix then sell it?

    Thoughts? Thoughts on how much to fix the screen and where to get it fixed? Thoughts on how much I can get for it with a broken screen?

    Fix it yourself if you're handy, then sell it.
    You're losing a lot of value by trying to sell it as-is.
    (parts from ifixit are expensive, buy the screen from elsewhere, but the tutorials are great).

    I bought a replacement LCD/Digitizer/glass front assembly off eBay for $40 when I cracked my screen last summer.

    Something like this:

    I followed the guide and my phone works great now. Just take your time and keep track of everything: I used stickies and labeled each one with the step and then put the parts I pulled out of the phone on the sticky. The entire process from start to finish took me 2 hours. I could probably cut that in half now that I have done it once. I think it is worth doing the repair yourself, saves a ton of money.

    get it fixed and use it.

    or sell it to me for $50. (I'll get it fixed and use it)
