We know that there are companies (some guy and his van) offering to replace your iPhone glass for $60. Be wary of that price! We actually purchase our glass at a hefty price to bring you “Apple-Original” glass. You can definitely find iPhone glass for $13 on eBay, but we don’t believe in bringing terrible knockoffs into our shop. $13 glass is not manufactured by Apple and it’s not made to the same specifications… you may very well end up with a non-functional iPhone because they’re using b-stock knockoffs.
Other companies in the area use the same glass we do and charge $200 to replace it. We don’t necessarily think that’s the best price for the customer, so we’ve drastically reduced our margins in order to bring you great quality glass and the lowest price you can get… for legitimate service.
We try to focus specifically on the iPhone 3G and 3GS due to the difficult design of the 1st generation iPhone. If you’re interested in a 1st generation screen replacement, it’s $249… you’re probably better of replacing the phone. In the first generation iPhone, the LCD, Digitizer and Glass are all one piece thus the higher price tag. Our suppliers have yet to bring prices down to where we can make this repair cost-effective, but we’ll let you know if we ever get there.
