    I need the black front because I dropped my phone and cracked the screen. I would like oem. Anyone have any experience with ebay sellers or a source cheaper than ifixit?

    I heard the lcd is fused with the glass so you'd have to buy the LCD and glass together. Either at cnn.cn, sw-box or truesupplier

    That's exactly right. It'll cost a good bit.

    Why you would pay 175 bucks to do the work yourself is beyond me though when you can walk into apple and pay 199 and be out in 10 minutes.

    Well said. Even if it's $150 still not worth it IMO.
    Apple will replace the whole phone for $199

    Say I bought the phone from a Best Buy, could I walk into an Apple store to have the phone repaired or replaced?

    Yes, it doesnt matter where you bought it or even if you bought it used off someone. Its covered under Applecare warranty for a year.
