Has any one found a good site to order replacement screens from. an one thats in the u.s? cracked me screen last night and just got off the phone with Apple support and they want $199.99 to replace it...... ok thats how much i payed for the damn whole phone. a bunch of bs if u ask me. i found a site that sells them for $70, but its outa hong kong. and 2 day shipping is like 40 bucks. thats cheaper then Apples bs. any one no of a semi cheap place that ships in the u.s?

well i found a site that has all the parts to fix it, and its in stock. and im gonna do 2 day shipping for 30 bucks more if i order from them. only thing there in hong kong. not sure if i can trust that or not. i mean its only 100 bucks and my bank can get it back if they try to screw me but i would like to find a place in the u.s. if i can. i might just say screw it tho

I broke mine the same exact way! Fell out of my shirt pocket when I leaned over to fix my boot! Damn. Check out my other post on screen replacement:

Make sure you get a screen with a digitizer. Its all you need to fix your phone.

Just pry the glass off of the plastic housing. Try to break some of the lower pieces of glass off so you have an easier time prying it off.
