    If I remember correctly, someone got their screen replaced for ~$150-175.

    May I ask how that happened? I just find it ironic that protection for the iPhone (granted it wasn't for the screen) but still managed to damage it.

    It seems like a viable option, but I'm in the same situation, and I'd much rather pay the fee to have the screen repaired.

    Besides the fact that the screen quality won't nearly be as good, plastic will show scratches much easier. While the glass of the iPhone can be cracked, it's virtually impervious to scratches from my experience.

    I guess you should not let your girlfriend be around large metal rods.

    I would check iFixitit.com maybe a little costly, but not as much as a new one.
