Default Replacement screen?

So I managed to crack my screen today right after waking up and dropping the phone. I looked on Dealextreme and it has a replacement case for the whole phone.


MY question is that does that dealextreme case also include the glass screen. Also is there somewhere else I can just buy the screen?

Thanks.

If I understand correctly it is your digitizer that is cracked..
Replacing the touch digitizer is possible but quite a technical thing to do...

Oh man, that sucks for me. I am a nerd so I can open stuff up and put it back together. But this drop is going to cost me.

Get yourself a new digitizer including front cover. Because its really hard to get the digitizer of. It will only cost you 65 on ebay.
I fixed my diamond 2 last time Works perfect now. Not that hard! Take some time and beers

Cheers

Yup ordered a digitizer yesterday for 60 + 15 shipping to canada. I don't trust ebay or paypal much so I pay straight off the credit card. Anything goes wrong I can file a dispute.

It's not really that hard tbh i just replaced my whole phone (case,screen,digitizer) the only thing you need to be extremely safe with is the flex cable to the front keypad.

Heres what phone phone looked like
