    I am giving my 3G to my girlfriend so i can get the new 3Gs, but I cracked my 3G's screen and they told me it wasn't under warranty for that. I am very comfortable opeing up my phone to replace the screen myself. I just have a question if i am ordering the right part here?

    My screen is cracked but 100% percent functional. has anyone just bought the replacement glass or do i have to buy the glass with the digitizer!

    thank you in advance
    Joe

    Here is the link to what i was going to order

    thank you for the links!

    i will give it a try. i had opened up many 1 gen phones (to do hardware unlock, and replace the back housings) but never a screen!

    i am pretty sure i can do it!


    Thank you again!

    Joe

    Good luck!

    Personally I'd go the $199 route and have Apple replace it for me. Let us know how it works out.
