I would avoid it... You don't want to cut yourself. It's probably not too expensive to have the glass replaced. If you're feeling adventurous, take chappmaster's suggestion and buy replacement glass and replace it yourself, but I would personally just have it done by someone who knows what they are doing.

You can probably replace the glass pretty easy yourself, but it will void your warranty i think. Other then that, what iphone you have? because the 2G glass and the 3G/3GS <(Same glass) and 4 screens are different

No man.  A cracked screen turns the phone into a time bomb.

haha just kidding it's fone to use.  Just don't cut yourself.  Just keep in mind that a glass shard can be thousands of times sharper than the sharpest scalpel.

buy a very cheap screen protector for the phone and put it on the cracked glass until you get it fixed. it will keep your fingers safe.(don't worry about the bubbles. just get it on and you can take it off when you get the screen replaced) my friend did it and then he just took it off and replaced the screen at a phone repair shop.
