Default Broken LCD

Looking to fix a broken LCD screen on my Infuse 4G. The screen still works just has a crack. I know I don't need a full assembly, digitizer or LCD backlite, all I need is the top glass. I can't find anyone who sells just the glass everyone wants to sell the assembly for $200+. Is there glass part available or am I screwed? I've replaced iphone 3gs screens b4 anyone have experience with the infuse?

How'd you break the screen? Also if the glass is broken its not the lcd presumably? Although if it is the lcd I'd think $200 is about what it would cost to replace. The phone is supposed to have gorilla glass that like won't break, right?

Gorilla glass can and will break, just not as easily as normal glass.

Just spoke with Samsung at 1-888-987-4357.

They will repair for $155.

Seems like the way to go if needing repair.

As far as I know, samoled screens are fused with the glass over it. thats why you can only buy the entire screen/glass/digitizer as one part.
Good thing about this design is better sunlight viewability and no dust under the glass
