Easiest way to replace glass panel

Is purchasing the Front Panel by itself and installing it the only way to replace the glass front or is there an easier way (that includes buying more than one part already put together)?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Good question! There is an easier way. You can replace the entire display assembly for $199, or just the front panel for $105.

Replacing the entire display assembly is quite easy.

Buy the parts from Amazon ($3 + shipping) and you will have a working iPhone after 20 minutes of not too complex repairs

that's a pretty good deal! However Danna had this problem more than one year ago and she was looking for an easier way than only replacing the digitiser. I'd hope it wasn't a problem for her still.. Ifixit also sells the part, so it's not too cool to recommend that people buy goods elsewhere. We don't work for ifixit, we get no commissions etc but if they earn no revenue from sales how are they to continue offering FREE advice and repair manuals?? :-)
