There are lots of little phone repair shops about. My HTC cost 40 pounds to repair the screen, it took 2 days

Genius bar in Apple store will fix, cost depends on model but my iPhone was around £70 (ouch!!). Did it same day - booked appointment online.

Genuis bar insisted on replacing mine - still charged about £70 and set it all up for me. Took me 3 weeks to get an appointment though.

Try small phone repair shops.

So ive been into the apple store.
Options are.
Buy a plastic screen for it.
Pay £75 and get a brand new one. They keep the cracked one.
Or find someone independant to repair for about £50.
