My Mom recently dropped her phone (a short distance at that) and had the front of her iphone4 crack into a few good splits. The phone itself is still completely functionally sound, it just has a shattered glass front. I believe when we went to the apple store they said they could get her a replacement for $150 (or maybe that was AppleCare+?) but that there was another option to send it to iResQ for $90. Can any of you tell me the most cost effective method of getting this screen fixed?
If you do the out-of-warranty replacement you will have a warranty on the service replacement phone (90 days or what was left of the warranty on her phone, whichever is longer). 3rd party repair will be cheaper but there will be no warranty.
