    Default smashed screen on iPhone

    My screen just got smashed on my iphone I have no idea what to do now.

    It's under warranty but I don't have the $250 excess.
    Do I go to my provider, apple or a mobile repair shop?

    Anyone know how much it cost for a new screen

    Apple charged me $130 for a screen replacement, lots of people use those dodgy shops but they void your warranty so I don't use them.

    I thought it was $199 at apple.

    If you don't mind voiding your warranty it's a lot cheaper at a repair shop - around $50 at most places I think

    Chances are that they will give you a restored phone instead of fixing your screen. So back everything up.

    A lot of people are actually buying the kits and changing them themselves now, apparently it's not hard to do.

    I watched a YouTube video on how to do it. I wouldn't do it myself and I'm pretty good with that sort of technical building stuff.
