    It looks like I can take it to Apple and let them fix it for $150 or order a DIY kit from Amazon that runs between $30-$60. Any advice?

    I'm sure I can, unless it isn't too complicated of a process.

    Probably not worth it to fix it yourself, It'll likely get touch disease anyways because of the drop.

    Take it to apple; keep any warranty you might have and be eligible for recalls or problems in future that might be warrantied.

    As mentioned above, touch disease applies to phone with no remaining warranty I believe&& in future if something else were to come up they wouldn't cost it. No telling what could happen in future. I wouldn't want Joe smo working on my phone anyways. Apple Store for win

    Exactly. Your going to pay the money to fix it yourself, and then your going to have to pay Apple $149 anyways when it gets touch disease because that's not related to the screen, but IS related to drops (like the one that caused your phone to crack). Just take it to Apple and pay it now, and actually save yourself some cash.

    Got ya. Will Apple fix the touch disease with the $149 screen replacement cost?

    I believe so, as the touch disease fix is $149 and it requires the entire phone to be swapped. I would bring it up at the Apple Store but not worry too much about it if you get it fixed through them.

    Always go back to Apple for screen replacement. It is not worth going elsewhere. So many things could go wrong, you want someone that will stand behind their work.

    My opinion. Is if you're not confident and repairing the iPhone yourself, then take it to a professional third-party or Apple. Don't chance it if you're not comfortable or having very little experience on how to replace a screen.
