    I want to replace the glass on a lumia Icon/930...Repairs cost like $200, and since I only need to replace the glass and not the digitzer,and lcd, I'll only need to buy the glass, which is around $10-$20 bucks...Does anybody know where I can find out how to go about this, or offer some sort of advice in removing just the glass from the phone.. In all the youtube disassembly videos they take apart the WHOLE phone, as in the back of it and everything inside..IS this necessary just to relace the front glass?? is there a way to replace just the glass without having to have the digitizer and lcd replaced too??because the price of the glass digitzer and lcd altogether costs around $100
    any help or direction would be greatly appreciated

    Sorry to bring you this but the reason that you do not find youtuble is that it is "impossibly" to repair the glass only.
    The glass is glued on the LCD and very difficult to remove without breaking the LCD and also if this would work you also have to glue the new glass on the LCD
    On youtube there are how ever video's how to remove "glass" only, maybe not specify for the 930 but if you find one for a different device you can get an idea.

    Your best bet, unless you are expert at it, is to replace the whole assembly. Make sure the one you get has the frame already. It may take a little time, but it's not too hard to do.

    If you do it, be careful taking the motherboard out. I find it best to start at the corner furthest away from the buttons, lift that up, and rotate the board out towards the buttons. If you pull it straight out, you can break the buttons off the board, at which point you're hosed.

    Edit: one thing I've noticed, is that 930 screens seem to be a little cheaper than Icon screens. They are the same, minus the Verizon logo.
