    I Found some services on ebay for around 80 bucks to get my broken iPhone repaired to look like new. I was thinking about doing it but i don't know if mine is in to bad a condition for them to fix it.

    Here are some Pics of it

    Tbh I've repaired ip3/4's etc that have been dropped or run over and providing the logic board is ok there fine. 3GS or 3g's can have a new front and back done for next to nothing these days

    Nothing wrong with what I posted. Not sure why it was deleted unless a mod is a public school teacher. :p

    Did you really censor the other faces in the pictures? What is this, witness protection?

    $199 and you'll get a brand new handset from the Genius bar.

    Its Jailbroken

    I Can't cause its jailbroken :(
    and if i unjailbreak it and they can't fix it then i won't be able to re-jailbreak it cause i can't get into dfu without the power button:(

    Its a 3G (not 3GS) and I Don't think that apple still fixes Those ones

    Maybe ask around independent phone shops? Hell, even Craigslist might have people near you repairing iPhones. I know here around St. Louis there are people who advertise that they'll replace the glass (perhaps the back) for a somewhat low price (usually <$100 altogether).

    No problem! You or a shop should be able to fix it.

    I'm in the process of turning my old 3GS from black to white, so I've ordered a few 3GS parts that cost me about $60 to swap out the front glass plate (digitizer), back and bevel along with the mute switch, sim card holder and a new battery. Here's a link to the site where I got replacement parts. For you, 3G Parts

    Good luck

    Simple answer yes. As long as the logic board and hardware inside is all fine, then that is just cosmetics. You can replace the front and back, pretty quick, for next to nothing. Look for some guides on iFixit and buy the parts off eBay, cheap as chips.
