    How much would it normally cost to replace only the broken glass screen on the 3g, the digitizer works but how much for the glass screen because I'm thinking if i should buy the iphone from my friend for $100.

    You cant replace JUST the glass. The digitizer is a very very very thin fragile piece of glass fused to the back of the glass. You cant remove the glass without breaking it.

    BUT....the glass/digi part is less than $30 on ebay...and it takes a special adhesive to apply it which can be bought from etechparts.com for $6.

    ok so I can remove the broken glass screen off the digitizer and then just put on the new glass screen onto the digitizer without breaking it? Or should I just buy a whole new digitizer and glass so I can just connect the 3 cables and have less hassle.

    DUTCH:

    U schuint vervangt ENKEL het glas af. De becijferaar is een zeer zeer zeer dun breekbaar stuk van glas dat aan de rug van het glas wordt gesmolten. U schuint verwijdert het glas zonder het te breken af. MAAR….het glas/digideel is minder dan $30 op ebay… en het neemt een speciale kleefstof om het toe te passen welke van etechparts.com voor $6 kan worden gekocht.

    German:

    Auf deutsch
    Sie schrg ersetzen GERADE das Glas. Der Analog-Digital wandler ist ein sehr sehr sehr dnnes empfindliches Stck Glas fixiert zur Rckseite des Glases. Sie schrg entfernen das Glas, ohne es zu brechen. ABER….das Teil des Glases/digi ist kleiner, als $30 auf ebay… und ihm einen Spezialklebstoff nimmt, um ihn anzuwenden, welches von etechparts.com fr $6. gekauft werden kann.

    Spanish:

    Usted linado substituye APENAS el vidrio. El digitizador es un pedazo frgil muy muy muy fino de vidrio fundido a la parte posterior del vidrio. Usted linado quita el vidrio sin la fractura de l. PERO….la pieza del vidrio/digi es menos de $30 en ebay… y l toma un pegamento especial para aplicarlo cul se puede comprar de etechparts.com para $6.

    Portuguese:

    Voc chanfrado substitui APENAS o vidro. O digitador uma parte frgil muito muito muito fina de vidro fundida parte traseira do vidro. Voc chanfrado remove o vidro sem quebr-lo. MAS….a pea do vidro/digi menos de $30 em ebay… e nele tomam um adesivo especial para o aplicar qual pode ser comprado de etechparts.com para $6.

    Italian:

    Smussato sostituite APPENA il vetro. Il convertitore analogico/digitale una parte fragile molto molto molto sottile di vetro fusa alla parte posteriore del vetro. Smussato rimuovete la lastra senza romperla. MA….la parte di vetro/digi di meno di $30 su ebay… e su esso prendono un adesivo speciale per applicarli quale pu essere comprato da etechparts.com per $6.


    ....and the language you are apparently speaking to him, GREEK:

    Λοξοτομείτε αντικαθιστάτε ΑΚΡΙΒΩΣ το γυαλί. Digitizer είναι ένα πολύ πολύ πολύ λεπτό εύθραυστο κομμάτι του γυαλιού που λιώνεται στο πίσω μέρος του γυαλιού. Λοξοτομείτε αφαιρείτε το γυαλί χωρίς σπάσιμο του. ΑΛΛΑ….το μέρος γυαλιού/digi είναι λιγότερο από $30 σε ebay… και παίρνει πρόσθετο έναν συγκολλητικό για να τον εφαρμόσει όποιος μπορεί να αγοραστεί από το etechparts.com για $6.

    You'd be lucky to get $250. Because like you most people either cant/wont/dont want to replace the glass either. And that makes it not worth it to them. Not when they can do some looking around and find one thats not broken even on ebay for less than $400 now. Cause you gotta figure in what they are going to have to spend in parts to fix it to.

    You need a glass + digitizer set. You can pick them up for 20 and its not a hard swap.
