85 for a screen seems pretty high when you can have it replaced for fifty by Verizon. Even without insurance if your a good enough customer they will still do it. Just takes a little extra complaining is all and maybe a threat of switching carriers
Since your on tmobile, i would try looking around for people selling storms. Since they are $50 for 2 from verizon, im almost sure there are tons of extra ones out there floating around. I would think you could get a little better deal that way, might be slightly more but youd at least have more extra hardware. Just an idea

They might at least offer some instruction seeing as they support device type.

Installed a new screen myself. $85 for the screen and its supposedly OEM. Working great!
Glad this worked out well for you. How would you rate the level of difficulty?
I had to replace my screen it isn't as hard as it looks! The tricky part is that the actual screen is glued to a metal plate which makes the screen click (pushes the button). When I replaced it I didn't notice this and I was like WTF why isnt my screen working. So in order to work you need to take the screen out of the metal plate and put the new screen on the metal plate. The new screen has a sticky side on it which should go face down. I encourage you to do it. You will save lots of $$$ If you have any other qstns or need help just email!
