There are many screens on eBay for the galaxy s3.
Just look up "galaxy s3 glass"

Keep it mind, the glass and the LCD is glue onto each other.
Those component are then stuck onto the frame of the GS3 by VERY strong adhesive.

The glass can be changed without purchasing the whole assembly which costs around $250 USD
But the risk of the LCD breaking is very high. The replacement isn't impossible, but just very difficult.

You need a lot of patience and heat to get the broken glass away from the LCD assembly.
