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

make sure when you are handling the digitizer, to no touch the back of it. Finger oil is a bitch to take off. Use gloves.
