    Mobile Phone Help (Screen replacement)

    Basically, I had an accident on my moped, and cracked my mobile phone screen. You can only see the back light. So i went into t-mobile and they said it would cost £60-70 to repair! Its a Nokia N73 which is worth about £100 i guess.

    Reason for thread is that i was wondering if there is a cheaper alternative than forking out £70. I want the phone as it has sat nav on it, has my contacts stored on mobile memory etc. I could take it to a local mobile unlocking shop but wasnt sure about whther they are trustworthy etc.

    Anyoen got any ideas....or experiances???

    TIA...Sam

    I've changed an N95 which was easy. I did a samsung shine(?) a couple of weeks ago that was a real pig to do.

    I would use my local unlocking type shop.

    My local phoneshop's fine or why not order a screen from the net and watch this youtube video if you want to attempt it yourself ]Click

    on second thorts.....i can get a screen for £20 so will do it myself

    Aye, do it yourself. It's a five minute job, and it's very straight-foward. Much better than paying the £60 repair shops around here charge for the job, and without the risk involved with letting some occasionally severely dodgy guys do things to your phone unsupervised for an hour.

    Indeed DIY!
