    Knackered the wifes Iphone!!!

    Just dropped the wifes iphone, it's not insured and I hae no interest in commiting insurance fraud.

    It seems that it's just the screen thats broke, LCD and touch screen both still work.
    How much am I looking a for a repair (not apple or o2), anyone done self repair,looked at them on the web as straightforward as they look?

    TIA

    I know of someone on another forum who replaces the screen for £30


    The AV one? Can you point me in the direction?

    You can get it fixed, or rather replaced by Apple. Although I'm sure it's about £80-£90.

    Book it into your local Apple store.

    It's about the 1st time I've ever touched the thing. Was playing on Angry birds. She'll not have one of them as it'll not be girly enough.

    Just doing a bit more reading and it looks like Apple charge closer to £200 to replace the screen.

    You may want to look at 3rd party companies to do it, as some will replace it for about £50. But make sure you do the research on them before sending off you phone.

    You could also DIY using kits off ebay for £15
