    Default iphone 1st generation screen
    I cracked the screen on my 1st generation iphone, everything still works fine it just doesn't look good. Do I have to replace the digitizer or just the lcd screen. Where can I get the best replacements? I appreciate anyone willing to help.

    Thanks,

    Johnathan

    You have to replace both the glass and digitizer as they're bonded to each other... you could try to chip the glass off the digitizer but it's next to impossible... I managed to do it just because it was spiderwebbed everywhere.
