Default Replacement Glass for Bold

Please Login to Remove!

I've looked at Cellular Accessories - 3G, Alcatel, Samsung, Motorola, Nokia, HTC, NEC, Apple, SonyEricsson, Acer, Sony and HorizonWirelessOnline.com - Horizon Wireless, The World’s Cellular Repair Center and I can't find the replacement glass for the Bold.

Does anyone know where to get that??

It's just a small smudge that's bothering me. I'm going to try Displex first. Thanks!

Any advise as to where to purchase a replacement LCD? I heard some places sell the screens but missing some pieces to fit the blackberry.

You have to replace the entire LCD on the Bold. It is completely different than previous models.

I just try to replace glass only. I got glass from ebay for 5 $. Glass is glued with all surface to screen. It is not just glue on edges.
I tried to remove glass heating up with fan. It was hard. It look like that glass glue and screen are fused. I inserted screw driver between screen and glass trying to remove glass and damaged screen on that place. Now it is black mark I did not break screen, I just lightly touched with screw driver and there is black mark exact on places where i inserted screw driver.

it look like there is some photo layer between screen and glass. That is probably a reason why glass comes with screen. I am ordering whole screen with glass now.

Good job Corey. What did you break now? This is why we can't have nice things!
