OKay so I broke my outter screen a few weeks ago and it finally got so bad i decided it was time to replace it. Im a pretty handy guy so I looked up on ebay and seen the replacement screen was only like $10.00. Not bad at all so I called a phone store to see how much for them to do the replacement..... One store wanted 160$ I was like ohh heck NO soo being a contractor remodeling houses and being such a handyman I thought I would just do it myself! Well I ordered the screen and waited patiently for it to arrive. Well last night it finally came in the mail..... OH YEAH... Well make a long story short my phone is screwed!!!! Everything went fine (so i thought) till i put the battery in and turned it on AND NOTHHING !!! My screen is black out!!!! Worst experience ever.... I cant stand being without my phone! Moral of this story I guess THANK GOD FOR PHONE INSURANCE!!!! I never put insurance on any of my phones till I got the Galaxy S3 and Im glad I did! If your screen is crack and you think its looks so easy watching someone on youtube do it. You got another thing coming buddy.... Take it to a PRO or you better have INSURANCE !!!!! THANK GOD BOOST HAS GOOD INSURANCE!!! LOST/STOLEN/DAMAGED Im still waiting for my claim to be approved but its my first ever so Im pretty sure I OK... GET INSURANCE ON YOUR PHONE!!!! or you will be screwed.

Did you follow a guide and order from a trusted vendor? Most devices have screen replacement guides online and are usually pretty easy.

Sorry about your phone.

I recently had to replace screen glass on my SGS3 and I have a similar background to you so I think the same thing, I got this...

The written guide that came with my replacement glass made no sense.

Then I found on XDA somewhere a link to this guy on youtube and with a video and it went pretty smooth.

Guess I got lucky, sounds like you may have damaged the digitizer under the glass.

I also watched his other video about all the ways it could go wrong first.

Probably won't help you but might help the next guy.
