    I have a pretty bad cracked screen on my iPhone 5 and I was wondering what exactly do I need to fix this? I have seen these on ebay, i'm not sure if this will work though.My screen is fully functional and no part of it doesn't work. Does this mean I still need to by one with a digitizer? Or is it possible to switch the digitizer over to the other screen?

    Ok, bumping is against rules. Anyways, here is something for you. iPhone 5 screens are not fully available outside Apple's control just yet. The ones you get are stolen from Foxconn factories.

    So, be sure to get them ifixit.

    I have the same question. One of my friend has broken glasses on his i5 but it's working perfectly without any issue.

    no that wont work, for the price of a new screen fitted, you can get a out of warranty replacement from apple.

    The out of warranty replacements are $250 I don't see how that's possible.
