    Just picked up a iphone 5 with a broken screen , I cant seem to find a decent price for lcd assembly's on ebay. Searched the part suppliers most people here use and no stock yet. Does anyone know where to get parts for a decent price or has anyone removed the glass from the lcd/digitizer?

    May as well take it to Apple for $229 and get it replaced? Screen assembly is the same cost.

    Agree with josh on this one. Or just sit and wait on the parts to drop in price. Depending on how much you paid for the screen it could still be a good investment.

    Prices are way too high , Im either gonna hold on to it or pay apple and get OEM parts replaced for the same price. I know they charge $229 for out of warranty replacement ,does anyone know what they charge for LCD replacement? I think they replace them in store now.

    You shouldn't reply if you're not certain. They replace the LCD in store now.

    OK first be more respectful. Secondly up until now apple did full phone replacements on the device if it had a broken screen (most but not all) apple stores now will just replace the front glass and lcd for 229. and not swap out the whole phone.

    Don't see how I was disrespectful. I think the price is lower because that's what they charge for out of warranty replacements, not repairs. I'm not certain and that's why I asked if anyone knew and that reply was useless.

    Ok how's this? For a fact apple charges 229 for a screen replacement and or out of warranty replacement. (Cracked screen is out of warranty)

    ^ +1. Doesn't matter either way? You're going to get a new iPhone and pay 229 for it regardless.

    So what are you doing here asking if you know everything?

    I never said I knew everything , I was asking their price to replace screens. Which you didn't even know they did.

    Your attitude says otherwise.

    Either way, you're gonna pay $229.
