    I dropped my phone and the glass spider webbed. Any suggestions? I searched on ebay and found some services that say they will repair if it if I send it in for roughly $30-40. Any tips (recommendations for service repair) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    I found a replacement kit on Amazon for $9.99 if you feel like trying it yourself.

    For the record, it's just the outer glass and not the digitizer or LCD? (the screen still responds to touches and no dead pixels?)

    It seems like its just the glass. No dead pixels so far.

    I'm a bit unsure about doing it myself but thank you.

    Rather than sending it to an anonymous, unknown eBay repair shop, you'd probably be better of finding a local shop to fix it.
