It slipped out of my pocket. But you can barely see the crack. It's almost microscopic.
Don't know what Apple charges, but a family member dropped her 4-month old Touch and shattered the screen. She just covered the screen with clear tape (it still worked) and when she got back to Chicago, she had it repaired for $75. They did a beautiful job.
First you should have an Apple technician look at it, they can give you the price for replacement. It's free to have it looked at and VERY rarely they will do a one time replacement for free. With the introduction of AppleCare+ Apple is kind of moving away from those special case scenarios for more uniform guidelines rather than case by case.
So, have Apple check it out, they will give you the best answers. If you don't have an Apple Store near you call AppleCare, they are great people to talk to and are very kind.
