Unhappy cracked 8700

Please Login to Remove!

I cracked just the front part of the screen on my blackberry 8700. First, should i get a new lens or a whole new front face plate? Second, would this be easy enough to replace on my own? thanks for the help!

I just replaced the fronts lens on my 8700g tonight, very easy use a hairdryer to heat up the adhesive on the old case. and the new lens you buy should already be sticky, and just adhere it to the front case. good luck!

I purchase a front cover with lens on eBay for $11.50 with shipping from Taiwan. Cheaper than anyplace I've found on the web.
