Question Telus 9900 Bold - Digitizer Cracked

Please Login to Remove!

Need help/advice if any of you have got it!

My friend got a 9900 Bold from Telus, and promptly dropped it on it's screen 2 days later.
The LCD is fine, but the Digitizer is shattered (although intact and currently scotch-taped to keep it that way)

A couple of quick quesitons:
1) Is it easy to remove the digitizer from the LCD? (I know it's not 'easy,' but digitizers are ~$35, and an LCD+Digitizer combo is ~$100 so the savings are worth it if it's possible to remove -I've done a iPhone 3GS and Torch replacement but can't find any concrete information on this phone)
2) I know there are different versions of the LCDs...but is this the same for the digitizers?
3) And finally, is there any way to tell the LCD version without taking the phone apart?

I usually get my parts from sw-box.com -> any other 'better' sources with these kind of prices?

Any other advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!

LCD screens on BB's are different and can even be different on the same model. the only sure way to replace the LCD is to remove it and get an OEM replacement of the exact same number.

Thanks!

So there's no way to go off the product number off the back of the phone (under the batter)
i.e. my torch is 27603-088; 9900 is 39473-001...
A friend suggested that the last three digits may match up with the LCD's 3 digit code..
But now i'm also seeing a PCB number with a 3 digit code...

guess i'll open it up!
