I've just dropped my phone, cracking the glass. The phone works and unlocks, but I can't unlock the phone with my fingers, only with the pen (for example, I've been able to connect it via AirDroid just by getting lucky with where I'm pressing with the pen, and using voice commands).

My question is, to replace the whole screen, do you need to do any of that heatgun madness? The replacement screen I'd be buying from Amazon or elsewhere has the glass already attached. So I'd imagine it's just some prying and a bunch of screws, but no glue, yes?

It will depend on what you are replacing. You said that your glass was cracked. If you are replacing just the glass/digitizer ($20) it will require a heat gun. If you are replacing the whole display assembly ($200+) you will not.
