    Closest Apple store is 2hrs and they want $200 to fix the front glass of my iPhone 4, which was out of my old case all of 1 hr before I dropped it!

    Anyone have any online places that do it?

    Seems too good to be true, it's $50 less than Apple is charging, but I couldn't find anything online that indicates they are not a scam.

    Can the Macrumor forums help me take the sting out of my butterfingers?

    You could take a look at http://www.iresq.com/ I don't know what they charge but they did my cousin's MacBook LCD replacement & I know they do iPhones too.

    I personally would just eat the $200 and get Apple to do it. Best to let the professionals get the job done right. At least you'll know that if anything goes wrong with the repair after they'll cover it. That's worth saving $50.

    Alternatively, see what you can pawning it off on ebay or craigslist and get a new one. goodluck!
