My sister shattered the CRAP out of her iPhone 4 (at&t) both the front and the back. So was wondering if anyone had any suggestions (other than iFixit.com, which is kinda on the high end/last resort, and ebay which means waiting forever/random quality) on where to get parts from? If so, what experience did you have, quality of the parts / pricing.

Any help would be appreciated, prob ordering the parts monday if I can find a decent place to do so.

From what I've seen http://www.powerbookmedic.com/ are a lot cheaper than iFixit.

... A lot cheaper. I think the rear cover for the iPhone 4 is about $80 on iFixit, where it's more like $35 on Powerbook Medic.

I've not used them personally but a business I've worked for has, and the parts seem to be good.

Thanks for the link, that still seems kinda pricey (compared to ebay... tho I guess you pay for what you get).

Did find http://iphone4parts.com/ but the domain alone scares me... generic names like that blah scammy.
