    So I got cracked the glass on the back of my iPhone 4 and I looked on ifixit and the cost to buy a new back is 110 bucks a little out of my budget.

    Is there any other sites that sell the rear class for cheaper maybe 20 bucks or so?

    the Apple Store will replace the back panel for $29, so I suggest you make an Appoint with the Genius Bar.

    where did you get that from?

    just called my local apple store and they said they can't give me a price over the phone and i must come in and have them look at it.

    I don't wanna waste of trip if they say its gonna be 100 bucks or something.

    This is true, they wont comment on prices or parts until they have inspected your phone by a genius but if it is just the back glass it will be roughly that amount, recently had to go get this done myself however they didnt have the glass in stock so as a goodwill gesture so I didnt have to travel miles back to the store another day they replaced my phone for free. However it would have been £25 here in the UK.

    It looks like the price for the glass on that site is just for the glass (no mountings, etc).

    Does Apple actually replace the glass, or do they replace the phone for $29?

    Every iPhone 4 has a warranty at this point, unless they are water damaged.

    warranty is one year from date of purchase. the yellow back looks terrible but the other colors look pretty cool. just make sure it is the entire back assembly. also make sure you get the camera ring.
