Cracked iPhone 4 Screen Repairs in 30 Minutes Now Available in Chicago, IL
Jet City Devices is now offering cracked iPhone 4 repairs for residents in the Chicago, IL area. They will replace the broken glass screen on an iPhone 4 in about 30 minutes at their northwest Chicago office.

As of this writing, the cost of the 30 minute Chicago repair is $159 plus sales tax. That price includes parts, labor, and a 90 day warranty. The price will most likely decline in the future as more iPhone 4 screens become available. For example, the iPhone 3GS repair offered by Jet City Devices initially started at $105 and now, after 2 years, costs just $75.
The reason for the additional charge is three fold. First, the product is much newer and there are less parts available. Secondly, the quality of the parts is higher. For example, the LCD (the part that displays the picture) has 4 times the resolution of the 3G or 3GS LCDs. Lastly, and most importantly, Apple changed the design of the iPhone 4 to make the LCD and touchscreen glass inseparable. In the 3G & 3GS, if the touchscreen glass broke, the LCD was usually fine and they could replace the front glass and reuse a customer's existing LCD. Not so with the iPhone 4. Even if just the front glass is cracked, the glass and LCD must both be replaced.
Jet City Devices isn't new to the world of iPhone repair. Opening their doors in late 2008, one of their first repair offerings was for the iPhone 3G. When the 3GS came out in 2009, they also began fixing that device. In the past 2 years, Jet City Devices has performed over 4000 iPhone repairs. In addition, they fix a variety of Blackberry and Android phones (such as the Droid and the new Samsung Galaxy S phones).
Jet City Devices Chicago office can be found at 5564 W Farragut Ave, in the Jefferson Park neighborhood on the northwest side.
