well, I'm a dummy and managed to crack my screen across the width (I don't even know when/how). It's not too bad...in fact you have to kinda hold it at the proper angle to even notice that it is there...but it is.
Anywho, I'm sure it will eventually spider out and get worse, at which time I'll have to use my insurance (which makes me sad becuase when its knew contract time they pay you for the phone if you havent sent in for a new one, this time being $175)
At any rate...
Out of curiosity I did call the only place in town I know of that fixes cell phones, and they wanted $228, which seems really high, considering this video:
It says the replacement part is only around $20. This how-to video also only lasts about 30 minutes, which presumably would mean that is how long it takes to do it, and, if one does the math, that means this store is charging approximately $400/hour in labor. The discussion part of this would be, is that going rate for everyone in their area? If so, doesn't that seem ludicrous?
The question part would be is if anyone has actually done this repair....if so, is it all there and correct...and, if so, should I consider giving it a try before using my insurance (which also cost me $50)
