  4. I recently got an iPhone 4 and accidentally dropped it. The screen where you scroll is cracked but the LCD is functional. It works perfectly fine but just looks really awful! It's been only 2 weeks since I got it and don't wanna have a cracked phone for the next two years when I'm with AT&T. I saw some replacement digitizer kits on eBay but I don't know if they work and wonder if I'm just risking damaging my phone if I try those out. Looks like if i take it to an apple store, they're gonna charge me an arm and a leg to fix it. It's probably going to cost me more than what the phone cost on contract with AT&T. I don't have insurance for my phone either. Please help and give me ideas on what to do!! :(
