Question OT: Urgent! iPhone 3G glass is cracked!!

Hi guys, I dropped my iPhone and the glass is cracked!

I did some research online and I think I need a glass and digitizer replacement. Does anyone know where I can buy that near Vancouver for a good price?

I saw a craigslist post and there's a shop in Richmond that sells it for $70. I'm looking for something cheaper, if possible. Can anyone hook me up?

Thanks!

So $70 is not that bad..

Here's a link where you can buy the replacement part online, I bought one at the same place when I had to replace mine

HERE with the digitizer module.

HERE's the one without the module.

I would spend the $70 and get the job done right.

I think the $70 quote I got is part only, does not include work.

Yeah I heard about Apple charging $200 too. That's just ridiculous.

i have a friend with the glass cracked and found out that the glass part has many parts to it because it is a touch screen phone and no one can guarantee a 100% fix...so that being said..just get a new one...its gonna cost about the same and can still cause some problems afterwards

My touch screen seems to work fine as far as I can tell. But yeah I can imagine more things go wrong when I try to fix it myself.
