Apple's out of warranty or not covered under the warranty "repair" price pays for an exchange.
This 3rd party repair company charges $100 to replace the glass only - if the LCD is not damaged.
If the LCD is damaged also, they charge $200, which is the same as Apple's repair price that pays for an exchange.

Currently Being ModeratedJun 17, 2009 9:33 PM (in response to smsephiroth)if you are like me you recently got up with your iPhone 3g on your lap and watched it fall to the ground and crack. I was so bummed when this happened and I was even more bummed when I found out that Apple charges 199 for this repair! I then did some searching and found http://www.iphone3gscreenrepair.com. They had the same repair for only $69.99 and better yet, they had my phone back in the mail to me the same day they received it. I really recommend them!
