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 it is not terribly difficult if you are familiar with smartphones, here is a guide:

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).
