    Spicoli's dad is a TV repairman. He's got tools.
    He can fix it.

    Have you tried this before? Next time take it to a repair shop.

    You summed up your options very nicely. Did you follow one of the ifixit procedures or did you attempt this on your own?

    Selling digitizers only is basically a scam. The two are impossible to get apart without damage.

    Is this true? I see a lot of ads on craigslist for people selling phones with broken digitizers saying it's an "easy fix"

    Easy fix on a 3 or 3GS. But not on a 4 or 4s. You must replace the digitizer and LCD as one unit on those.

    I've replaced several iPhone 4 screens that I can now do it under 30 minutes. The first time took me about 3 hours lol.
