    I wouldn't suggest fixing it yourself, there are a number of places that will fix the phone if you send it out or you can take it to Apple who will fix it for $200 I think.

    iPhone Repair - iPod Repair & iPhone Repair from Restore Doctors
    3GS iPhone Repair, iPhone Glass Repair

    I HIGHLY suggest SquareTrade insurance for your iPhone.

    Personally, I'd want it done right, so would just take it (or send it) to Apple.

    Apple. You probably have to pay a little bit more than if you find someone to fix it for you, but Apple will probably give you a replacement or something...

    If you are sure it's just the screen take it to an Apple store when I had dust under my screen they changed the screen in the store in ten minutes. Ofcourse yours prob wont be covered under warranty so you'll have to pay for it. Stop using it until it's fixed, isn't the cracked screen the reported cause of the iPhones that exploded?

    This is not an easy fix, I would try to find someone local that does it. A friend broke her glass and she bought new glass on amazon or something for like $30 and then found someone that fixes it for like $40.

    Yeah I agree just take it to an apple store and get it swapped out . The only thing is a cracked screen is not covered under any warranty through apple , it a $200 bill . But try and see if they can upgrade you to a 3GS , that may take a miracle tho .
