    Are the phones less than a year old? Applecare+?

    I ask because having AC+ reduces the price considerably. And I also ask because if you don't have AC+ and you get the glass replaced while the phone is less than a year old you will effectively void the remainder of your one year warranty.

    So, if later on (but still before a year is up) you need warranty service from Apple and they find a non-Apple OEM screen replacement you're done. They won't fix it.

    less then a year well it has to be it is a 6s but no apple care I have never needed it. it knocks off 50.00 off the cost. but yes I don't want to void the warranty.

    You can buy the screen online, and do it yourself.lol

    Well in that case do not get your screen replaced anywhere else other than Apple. You still have Apple's complimentary 1 year warranty coverage which you'd not want to void. Besides, chances are that Apple might only charge you $99 if you're lucky.
