My back glass on my iPhone 4 shattered yesterday so I made an appointment for the Genius Bar at my local Apple Store (Costa Mesa, CA). I was expecting the employee to tell me that I would have to replace my whole phone for $199 but he informed me that they had back glass in stock and it would cost $29! My iPhone is looking new again thanks to Apple!

Man what a lucky break! I've never heard of Apple doing anything but offering the $200 trade in for a refurb. I wish all the apple stores had service like this.

I asked the guy when they started offering replacement back glass and he said all Apple stores have been doing these replacements since August 24th so if yours break, you should give a call to your local Apple store.

You guys think it's the same for the front glass cause I have a small chip and $30 is worth it if that's what it'll cost.

I'm pretty sure they won't fix the front for that cheap since it requires doing much more work than the back glass.

It actually makes sense that they would do this. Considering how much trouble the have had fulfilling vendor orders, why waste an ENTIRE phone on a glass replacement when they can just replace the broken part and be good to go.

I cracked my iphone 4 front screen, I did some research on the internet and found out that some apple stores are actually replacing the front cracked screen for free. I went to an local AT&T store (there isn't a apple store near where I live) to see what they said and they said something about insurance. So I decided to make a hour and half trip to the apple store and they actually replaced my Iphone 4. It was real quick and there really wasn't no question ask about how it happen.
