How much does it cost to replace an iPhone with a cracked case-will I be able to replace the phone for less than full price without insurance?

There have been good stories of Apple replacing the phone for free. Might be worth getting an appointment with a genius. If not, Apple charges $200 I think. There are third party companies that are cheaper, so I've heard.

Take it to Apple. They almost always replace them for free the first time. After that, I think it's $29 for the backplate and $200 for the front.

I took mine to 3rd party for replacement, does anybody know if Apple will be able to tell if I take it back to them for diagnosis of another problem?

Technically, that voids the warranty, but they'll probably still replace/repair it.
