Not so worried about the andonized back cracking but am worried what my options would be if one of the two upper and bottom glass windows cracks. Anyone know?
No, the $229 replacement is the cost for replacing your device if it's out of warranty regardless of where it's broken. There is no separate cost to replace the screen.
i know, this is what I meant$229 is to replace the entire phone. Lol
Other than the ease of removal (& tech specs), I thought there was little difference between the front display of the iphone 5 vs the 4? Assuming it would cost the same.Anybody have to replace the front yet? Wonder if its cheaper since they can fix just that component now.

That makes sense. Let's hope Apple decides it should cost less. My only fear is that quality 3rd party replacements for the 4/4S weren't that much cheaper and had nothing to do with the ease of repair.Yup, but it was so expensive because they refused to remove every component of the 4/4S to just replace the screen, and just charged you $199 for a whole new phone, the back panel was cheaper partly because it was so easy to remove, so I'm wondering since they don't have to remove every component, and only need to remove like 2 if they are now just fixing the screen and not giving you a whole new phone (making repairs cheaper).
I don't plan on using a case on this phone either. But at least the glass on the back doesn't affect functionality, unless the camera lens breaks.yea it seems like if the screen cracks, it should be a somewhat cheap fix if buying the part online since it is so easily replaceable. but if one of the windows on the back cracks its a different story
