Default Cracked Screen Or Leaked Screen Does It Matter????

Please Login to Remove!

I dropped my phone today and there is a tiny little mark in the top left hand corner - the whole screen is white and it wont let me do anything.

Can i get a new screen?? Ive seen posts saying about new screens but im not sure if it makes a difference if its actually cracked which it isnt - theres no visual damage to the phone at all apart from this mark on the white screen when its turned on.

Any help greatly appreciated

thanks

You can buy a replacement screen and install it yourself.

9700 - Cellular Accessories | Mobile Accessories | Cell Phone Chargers | Cases | Cell Phone parts |

Just make sure to order the exact model number screen. There are tons of YouTube videos that show you the entire process of replacing various components.

Normally folks use an old retired one they still have laying around while the parts are on order. If I didn't have mine for a couple days I'd be climbing the walls!
