When we were in the US last weekend, there was a booth where it would take a week, but they would replace your screen for $100! Anyone know what it would cost here in Canada?

So when I came across this tip on Pinterest, I thought everyone with an iPhone would want to know about it! Just in case you ever need to...

NOTE: Using this tip may void your warranty - check with your provider before proceeding. If you have the warranty, it’s free to get your screen fixed!
