    Default iPhone 3GS Scratched Screen Repair Quesiton
    I found a local repair center that claims they can replace the screen without the digitizer for 79$. I'm a little nervous about this since everywhere else and all the parts I see sell the two together.

    Anyone have any advice?

    Doubt they can do it.

    But the glass w/ digitizer part can be bought for around $30 plus the adhesive so if they want $80 to do it, even if they are replacing the entire part they're making $40 or so.

    Ya, I tried to negotiate him to a lower price. I'm still a little nervous with a glass+digitizer replacement due to those adhesives that have to be removed and replaced. I've heard some of the poorer quality adhesives don't work well and cause the screen to not sit right. Anyone have any experience with this?

    Sorry cpjr. $79 sounds fishy as hell. I wouldn't trust some random person to work on your phone bro.
