    Broken Glass or Broken Digitizer?

    I have a 3GS with a busted screen. When I look to have the screen repaired I see different prices for broken glass or broken digitizer or the LCD is busted. How do I tell which is broken?

    A little more detail. I am able to slide the bar on the bottom but it doesnt work everytime and the touch screen seems to work more towards the top and not so much on the bottom.

    Seeing that new pic, it's definitely your digitizer.

    Is it possible to fix on my own? I looked on ebay for a digitizer. I saw they were around 10.00. I would have thought it was would be much more expensive.

    Very easy to fix if you decide to do it yourself. Ive done many for myself and others and never messed up. If you have trouble getting glass off certain areas, try using a blowdryer to melt off some of the glue under it slightly.
