It can cost between $100 and $130 depending on the model type. A good place to check for a repair technician is https://www.icracked.com they have certified technicians all over the world and fairly good quality service.
If you are adventurous, you can do it yourself, I know lots of non technical people who have done it, and it is cheaper, at $40-$50 for the parts. A good place to find easy guides on how to do it, and the parts is ifixit: https://www.ifixit.com/Store/iPhone

Send it to Apple, tell them that it drops calls. Go to the Apple warranty checker then book a repair. They will send an envelope for you to post it in.
They will give you a new one, that's what i did.

or you can head into a apple shop and get it replace with a refubished handset for around £140, meaning the refubed handset will be scratch free, have a good battery life etc.

I smashed the screen on my iPhone 4 and took it to the Apple store in glasgow and they replaced it for free. Its normally a set price of 118 + vat though.

Wow Bajillions, that was excellent service from them. Did you say anything in particular that led them to offer the freebie?
Mar. 4, 2011 at 18:48
I just told them how I dropped it while texting and the girl gave me the price and said they just replace like for like. Then she said she would do it for free as she could tell I was genuine.

Yeap Apple store will replace it for free.
A Genius bar appointment with apple needs to be made and ask them to change it for you ( Well in most cases they change it without u asking). Simple as that.
Not only that They will also replace your Damaged headphone and as well as your iphone charger.

ive had my iphone fixed and it cost me £100 at a local store at first i was displeased with the price but after the job i was pretty happy with the work they had done as it looked brand new, aslo they had tidied the edges of my iphone aswell to get rid of the scratches. So it was a bargain on my behalf.

I've repaired a few iPhones in my time.
I did one for a friend as a favour and she paid for the parts
Glass digitizer - £7
LCD - £15
Home button - £1.75
Back cover - £12 (all prices give or take)
All in I charged her £40. Phone looked brand new by the end of it
It's quite straightforward once you get past the first OHMYGODWHATAMIDOING feeling and your **** stops twitching like a rabbits nose
May. 6, 2011 at 22:43
It costs £90 fitted, as its the lcd and digitizer together for the iphone 4, the parts cost around £50 to buy yourself

Anyone know how much it would cost to repair the bezel around the edge of the iPhone 4? I want to get mine sorted, as it's bugging me now.

Its a £146.44 to get the phone replaced due to a cracked screen (its not covered by the warranty). They don't just replace the screen they give you a replacement phone. Do not whatever you do set up the replacement over the phone. Go to the Genius bar. The reason for this is if you do not tell them the screen is cracked on the phone they will either send the phone back untouched if it was setup as a standard replacement, or if its the Express replacement they will charge your card for the full cost of a replacement phone. If you tell them its cracked its a guaranteed charge of £146.44. If however you go to the store there is a small chance you can explain a hard luck story and they will replace it then and there for free. If not its a £146.44.

I dropped my iPhone and cracked the screen. It wasn't cracked badly but the touch screen no longer worked. I went into the apple store, was honest and explained what had happened and as it was still under warranty they replaced it free if of charge! They will make allowances but if it was damaged due to complete negligence or you go in with the attitude that you shouldn't have to pay then you will have to part with £146.44!
