    I have no idea how it happened, but the cover of the rear camera on my phone has shattered. Is it possible to replace this myself? If so, where would I get parts and learn how to make the replacement? Thanks!

    etradesupply claims to have the original OEM camera for sale. It will run you about $48 once shipping is included.

    Replacing anything on your device is a serious task.

    BE CAREFUL!

    Hmmm... Yeah, I don't have that much interest in doing major brain surgery on my phone. Other phones appear to have relatively simple fixes for that piece (not replacing the whole camera).

    If you haven't fixed it yet, you CAN replace just the lens cover. Not sure why these guys are telling you to replace the entire module.
