To fix or not to fix

As some of you might now I recently dropped my iPhone 4. It now has a lovely crack in the screen. Fixing it at T-Mobile costs 200/300 euros. I will keep the guarantee then but I'm phoneless for about a week.
I can let it fix for 180 euros at a company that fix phones but then I will lose my guarentee and they have my phone for 2 days. I also can fix it by myself. A new screen costs 60 euros and I keep my phone.
What should I do? Did someone replaced their iPhone frontscreen?

What good is the guarantee if you still have to pay 200/300 euros to get it fixed?

I don't know. They don't fix things if it is your own fault. Pretty lame.

waste of money, sell the apple and buy better phone.

i highly...highly suggest looking into squaretrade warranties next time. They will cover drops and spills and are usually 30-50% cheaper in my experience.

Best of luck.

Just fix it yourself. Find some guides online and go with one that has plenty of images and very clear instructions so you don't make a mistake :)

You'd lose there guarantee if you try to fix it yourself right?

When I worked for AT&T we couldn't do any iPhone service because Apple held the contracts...needless to say no one was happy when they found out that they would have to go to a corporate store in dayton or an apple store in Cinnci...if that is still there

@football Maniac,
Yes. ;(

I'd try fixing it yourself first. There are a lot of tutorials.
