    Cracked Screen

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all had a great summer!
    I have managed to crack my screen on my storm. It's working good but looks like crapola! Does anyone know if the screen can be replaced or am I looking at another storm purchase??? EEK! And at what cost?

    Hello tamara,

    I think you posted in the right forum. Anything 9530 Storm.
    So I found a link.

    Screens for 9530 Storm

    $100.00

    I would think one would be able to find a better deal on a new device rather than replacing the screen.
    Your call. Hope this helps.

    Hey Tamara, you could look on ebay. Looks like they are $80-$100 though. And you would have to take it apart and fix it yourself. Sorry to hear that your Stormie got busted

    Ebay

    There are (at least there were) aftermarket replacement screens available on the internet. Google search might get you one. I'll see what I can find. But, you have to take the entire phone apart to replace it. Are you able to do that? Verizon has lowered the price on the Storm to $49 last time I looked. Not sure what your carrier has available but it might be cheaper to just replace it as the Storm 2 should be launching shortly and carriers are attempting to reduce their current Storm inventories.

    oh you ppl are giving me way too much credit to think that I could possibly fix it myself.....ha ha ha....probably not a good idea. I had problems properly navigating the McDonalds drive thru the other day! LOL. I will check out the link and call my service provider and see what they can do.

    Thanks!

    xoxo
