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!

my brother's iphone got cracked, and it started spreading lol....anyways we went to apple store to see how much they can fix it for, they quoted us $200 +tax

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 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.
