You don’t have to live with a cracked iPhone screen

Austin American-Statesman - - TVTONIGHT - By Omar L. Gal­laga

Af­ter I cracked the screen of iPhone 3GS, I didn’t panic too much be­cause I know that bro­ken screens are com­mon and I’d seen ad­ver­tise­ments for places that re­place them.

Ap­ple can do this for you, of course, but I’ve heard that it can cost up to about $150. In­stead, I took my phone to All Cell Re­pair. The price I was quoted was $75.

Less than an hour later, I got a call that my phone was ready. I picked it up and was told that the screen they used was the last one in stock and that while it was be­ing ap­plied, a tiny scratch had ap­peared be­low the ac­tive screen (just to the right of the Home but­ton). I could barely see the scratch and told the sales­per­son that I was fine with that.

They knocked off $15 on the price. The only thing I’ve no­ticed is that the Home but­ton seems to be less re­spon­sive. I’m all right with that.

All Cell isn’t the only place in town that does re­pairs of smart phone screens for less than $100.

A Google search yielded stores like Austin Mac Re­pair, All Wire­less Re­pair, Cell Re­pair of Austin and iTech Elec­tronic Re­pair, among oth­ers.
