Default 7100t screen, film over it after apply nail polish remover

Please Login to Remove!

Stupid me, I had arraged a 7100t replacement due to some not fixable issues with receptions.
After the arrangment, I used a nail polish remover to clean up some nail polish on the side of the phone by the dial, and then I, without thinking, wipe the front screen with the pad.
The next morning, I had this film over it.
I called Tmobile to explain the problem and they said you will most likely be charged the $100 damage fee.

I checked the screen replacement on a thread here, they are going for $50? Is this the right piece? I really only need the plastic screen not the LCD.

Please help

Normally, the haze or "film" as you call it will wear off in a couple of days...maybe a week or two. I remember that I used to use nail polish remover to take the scratches off a watch dial and the haze would take a little bit to go away, but it would. I would say wait a bit before forking over that hard earned cash...unless you just can't take it of course.

Actually, its pretty likely the OP melted the screen a little with the acetone. I would not expect the haze to go away.

Have fixed this before. You will need a very fine polish. There are kits that have a three part, medium/fine/extrafine.

I have done my 7100 once to get rid of scratchs and looks like I need to do it again to get rid of scuffs.

A buffing whell and fine compound will make it look new. Careful not to get it too hot...!
