Heya,

need to know the cheapest place to get an iphone screen replaced using oem parts? The top glass cover is fine just the screen under it..

Cheers

iphones are not repaired they are replaced
your chances of finding a screen would be pretty remote

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

You can buy a glass panel from iFixit.com for around $60USD. It comes with instructions for installation, and there are some video resources on the site to guide you through it too. I am not 100% sure but I think they also have the LCD panels as well although I imagine installation would be a tad more difficult.

Then again if you're under warranty you can just get Apple to do it if you can prove it was a defect, otherwise you can pay for them to do it outside warranty.


EDIT: just had a look at the website.  seems like the easiest option is to get the whole display including glass panel/lcd/home button/etc for around $150USD.  Read here

All these suggestions are great, if you are wanting the damage to be reviewed by Apple's Wireless Authorized Service Provider go to Mobilefone Repair in Auckland - www.mobilefonerepair.com they will be able to assess and give you a price to get it repaired or advise if it is something that can be covered under warranty.
