$199 is a lot. Any other good alternatives? Maybe at smaller, lesser known electronic shops? Thanks!
What? Smaller lesser known shops are always a lot more expensive.
More expensive than the Apple Store's $199? I doubt it, but I may be wrong. In any case, do you have any better recommendations?
Just give them a call, not sure about the price on the iphone 4 but for my 3gs it was only $70 at a independent shop about a year ago.
it's $150 for a iPhone 4 replacement. paying that much for a "brand new" iPhone, is so worth it.
Yes, more expensive because they can't buy products with huge amounts from wholesale warehouses and the more expensive price they get then gets passed on to you.
iPhone 4 screen replacement will cost more than the 3G/3GS as you have to completely dismantle the phone, whereas the 3G/3GS had a simple pop out screen.
If you are handy with a screwdriver, give it a go. If its just the glass thats broken and not the screen, you can buy the glass/digitizer for $20.
Have a look at the ifixit guides before you take a screwdriver to your device!!
$199 is just for the 4S replacement.
All other previous iPhone models are $150.
Order it yourself online and ifixtit.com to repair yourself. Doesn't take an IQ of 150 unless yours is below 90. :0
Does that mean that if my IQ is below 90 then I will have to boost my IQ to 150 to have success?
If you lived close to me, I'd replace the screen for you for $40 (the exact cost of a new screen).
It's really not that hard to replace the screen.
Repairing it yourself Or iPhone Repair Shops
There are plenty of local tech shops that do iPhone repair, and they don't charge nearly as much as - You're talking 90-100 bucks for the 4. I know. I do them! But.. you can probably find someone locally. It's becoming a lot bigger now a days.
If Apple continues with the Form over logic design philosophy, I definitely won't pick up the next iPhone. Mobile devices should not be designed where a case is a must. Most people, no matter how careful they are, will have their phone dropped one way or another. It's called accidents for a reason. Shattered glass and iPhone 4/4s are now synonymous. Rubbish.
Cheapest solution is to just use it with the shattered glass, cost nothing
This just happened to my fiances 4. It seemed like a waste to pay apple 150 to get a refurb. And getting a 4s is not worth it.
So I slapped a screen protector On it and she's gonna have to live with it until the new iPhone comes out. Unless of course she does some other catastrophic damage to the poor thing.
Submerged it in coffee, worked a day later. Her sister spills water on it a week later, no problem.
Falls out of her pocket 3 feet to the floor, screen cracks. So much for having an Incase slider
Smartest guy in the thread. I ALWAYS say this when people are asking such questions. It's going to run at least $50 to have it done, do it yourself and boom goes the dynamite... jacked up ribbon cable. $150 for a "new" iPhone is a steal.
Nothing wrong with the 4/4s design. I have never broken any of my 4/4s's and neither have hundreds of thousands of others. Cases aren't a must but if you take your chances AND have butter fingers don't cry and say it's a bad design.
So your fiance gave up her own free will when she got engaged to you? Why do you have any say in what SHE does with her phone? Sounds like she's in for a very fun marriage.
Buy a replacement screen on ebay for 30 and repair it yourself. You can find a video how to on you tube.
