    Theres no point getting it fixed, i think the best bet is to sell it to someone who can fix it themselves.

    I was told mazumamobile buy cracked phones if the LCD is not broke, is this true?

    Only two I can find on Ebay that have sold are at £200 and £240.

    Problem is, I can't seem to find anyone that sells the digitiser on it's own, and if you buy the full LCD/Digitiser unit you're looking at paying at least £130 just for the part itself. If you can't do it yourself, it could be another £50 for labour. :|

    I know, looks very expensive to replace just the cracked glass, £200-£240 seems an good price putting repair costs into consideration. Thanks for your help!

    this caught my interest...

    on fleabay there are two items that relate to the screen an outer glass and the actual display. the glass is not too extortionate but on ebay they want 140 for the actual screen (!).

    might be worth having a look at this thread where someone shows how to replace the screen - if it is only the glass, keep and fix - if its the screen then put it back together and chuck it on ebay.

    might be why unquestioned got 180 for his s2??

    Isnt the glass connected the screen and carnt be seperated with breaking it, thats what i read on a youtube dissambley video.

    step 8 shows using a hairdryer to melt the adhesive and separate the two pieces. obviously time and care should be applied.

    if it were only the glass that is broken then perhaps warm new glass with the hair dryer and apply screen to warm glass and apply gentle pressure to attach?

    See how much Carphone Warehouse will charge for repair - they charged £80 for One X screen repair (LCD & digitiser) where others were asking ~£150

    My mate cracked his screen and was told £180 to fix it. The guy told him to leave it a few more months and he would get it it for half that price

    Slightly delayed response granted but I have a similar problem, went to http://www.fonefix.co.uk and got a price there and then online and you don't have to pay until it's repaired. I thought I would share this handy little resource with you guys :)

    £119 for a replacement S3 screen...
