I woke up the other morning to find my iPhone 4s with four big cracks in it, I'm still not sure how it happened but anyhow, I was wondering how much it costs to get the front screen fixed at the apple store? As I dont want to go to anyone dodgy... I dont have insurance and I didnt get the phone from apple store, so Im not in line for a replacement thank you


iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1.1

    If you did not purchase AppleCare+, it will cost you US$199 for a replacement. Apple does not repair iPhones, they replace them.

    Well I went to the store a few weeks ago as my friends cracked the back of his iPhone and they fixed that for £25, so surely if they fix the back... they should fix the front? Im in the UK by the way

    The back screen is indded far less and they do replace those.  The front screen is not the same as the back glass:

    The back is just glass. It's not connected to the electronics, it's not touch sensitive, and it doesn't control everything the iPhone does.

    Hi Ella, I have smashed the glass on the back of my iPhone today and have been today I would be unable to have it repaired by the Apple store (by people on these forums). How did your friend go about getting his fixed for only £25? Was it insured? Under warrenty? Which store did you go to as well, if yoiu don't mind me asking?

     

    Thank you!
