If it's the digitizer AND the screen you're looking at over 100 (I'd have to check in the morning as prices changing all the time on them). If it's just the digitizer it's a lot cheaper.

Protect your bubble, well, apart from you suggesting insurance fraud (which I couldn't possibly comment on) I've heard all sorts of stories about them, including that if you make a claim you have to pay your 12m up front on top of any excess before they'll pay out (to stop people making one payment, having a big claim and not making any more payments).

Buy a blocked or spares or repair s3 from eBay, and swap the front over, its easy to do, find a video on you tube and follow it, that's what I did with s2, just make sure the one you buy is same colour.

All so you wont pay any one labour charges.

Getting insurance from protect your bubble and making a claim will cost you way more than the 115 theDr quoted. Avoid at all costs.

To check if they're robbed (or not) use http://www.checkmend.com/uk/

Front glass only (screen intact) on an S3 is 60 (normally 70 so mention Wiki if you bring it in).

It's not a quick job as we use UV reactive glue to bond it in as the double sided pads some (other) places use leave the screen sitting a bit proud of the frame.
