    Looking on Craigslist for my area and I found an iPhone 3g with a craked screen for 100 dollars. Says that it still works and all. I was thinking I would buy for 100 and then replace the screen for about 30 - 40 dollars.

    Is it worth it or is it too hard to replace the screen on a 3g?

    If its possible i thought it would be a really good deal.

    Thanks

    It depends on whether you are patient. I replaced my mom's screen but the first time I messed up and had to get another.

    I would say go for it. For that price if you screw it up your not out much to try again. If you get it your really ahead of the game money wise.

    I don't have the link. Sorry. I bought one off a site then the other off of ebay. The one off ebay was cheaper though.
