    The LCD doesnt crack like that.

    Does the "touch" function all over the screen?? Looks kinda like the digitizer is cracked.

    Either way, it can be fixed. Either one can be replaced.

    It works fine
    It's just looks all cracked
    I know how it happened too
    I had it in my back pocket while I was skating on the half pipe
    I got into an axle stall and the board went flying in front of me and I landed on the coping with my butt
    So I think that is what did it
    How much would it cost to fix?

    Please reply


    Can you fix it
    I know you did all that crazy awesome stuff with the back piece
    I'm willing to pay

    I can fix. Depends exactly whats gotta be replaced. Its most likely the glass/digitizer part. That would be cheaper. PM me if you wanna me fix.

    Thank you so much
    Can you give me a price range
    And before I result to opening it up I'm gonna take it to the apple store
    I'm gonna have to restore

    Hey I had this idea but I don't know if it will work
    But
    If before I restore could I SSH into my phone and copy all the file and when I re-jail break could I ssh in and put it all back would all my stuff be there?

    It doesnt work that way. cut and pasting apps would mess stuff up.

    Well, the glass/digitizer is about $35 for the part. The LCD is around $70 for the part. Depending on whats gotta be swapped labor would be $25-$40.

    Tell her Broomhead said cprj is the man, and would never rip anyone off. He has fixed many iPhones for people here and not one complaint. Search around and you'll see that he is your best choice for the job.

    ^Haha, thanks Broom.

    I honestly dont know if its the digitizer or the LCD, reasons:

    1. It would be nearly impossible for the digitizer to crack and still work.

    2. It would also be nearly impossible for the LCD to get "stress" cracks in it and keep working.

    So, I dont wanna say either way until I see it (the more I think about it, the more I think its probably not the digitizer).

    I can promise you it would be fixed right (and honestly). And you can send the money.....or use Paypal if you find that safer.

    Also, if you have any electronics experience and feel somewhat confident on making small repairs.....I can tell you how to remove and disassemble the screen and check it......but dont if your not completely confident in doing it.


    PS- AptBackup in Cydia is supposed to backup all your cydia apps, itunes for everything else.

    Ok
    I can send you the money
    I am not confident to do that at all (Only 13)
    If I do send it to you
    Ignore my texts
    :P
    How much money should I send you?

    Send me $100...that would be the most (worst case scenario - LCD) and if its cheaper I will send you the difference back.

    I'll also send the old part so you have proof of what I swapped and take pics of the swap.

    I have an LCD but would have to order the glass/digitzer...so if you wanna send it tell me when cause I'd rather order the part first, so your phone wont be sitting here (I can get it back to you faster).

    Oh...and I assuming your US?

    Oh good. Im in Ga, not too far.

    Maybe you'll get lucky at Apple.....maybe. If not let me know and I'll order the digi, will prolly take a few days to get here and you can send the phone over. I can get it fixed the night I get it and back out the next day.
