Default Screen replacement for 8700?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

My 8700 outer screen got cracked while travelling internationally. The device works fnie and I can read everything. It just looks bad. Its a real shame since I like my BB so much.

Anyone know where I can get a spare or get it repaired without spending the $200+ that RIM charges?

Thanks

First time 8700

I found these guys in an older post but they dont have 8700 parts yet......http://www.promobility.net/html/blackberryparts.shtml

Maybe you can try to email them and see what they say...

Good luck!

do a search for "cracked screen". i also had a cracked screen and was able to call the number within that thread and get a free replacement. supposedly, you can drive an icepick through the screen and as long as there is no water damage, you can get it replaced free.
