    I have cracked glass, but display still works fine. Is it possible to replace the glass without replacing the display?

    Not on this model. The glass and LCD are fused together. You will need to replace the whole screen. You can find this replacement part here - Samsung Infuse LCD + Touch Screen Replacement

    It is possible just to replace the outer touchscreen digitizer for this model?
