    You can try to repair your phone by yourself if you are interested, because it costs much more if you return the phone to those repair shops. Here is a site that shows many take apart videos about the latest models of htc, samsung, motorola and apple. They can give you many hints about how to disassemble and install a phone.
    You can also get comprehensive replacement parts such as the htc replacement parts and the motorola replacement parts from the site. Have a try. Good luck to you!
    minimum order of two Motorola DROID digitizers from that website. It's one of the toughest cell phone repairs out there, but I know of at least one DIYer that did it successfully.
    in Maryland and Washington DC, cell phone repair is taking off. It's amazing the number of smartphones with touch screens that get dropped and crack.

    I did it myself but I honestly would not recommend it, a lot can go wrong in the process and since its the last thing you take off, and then have to put EVERYTHING back together to see if it works, it can be extremely time consuming and frustrating when its all together and doesnt function, I didnt count how many times I took it apart and reassembled.

    On top of that I paid $60-65 for my digitizer (prices seem to be coming down) and someone else here mentioned that you can get it repaired for $75 with a 2 week turnaround, for me this would have been the better way to go, only $10 more you just have to suffer through 2 weeks with no cell phone.

    Also in the take apart videos, some things are inaccurate and the Droid phone has changed slightly, there are stickers binding your Verizon Droid together and they are tough to get unstuck. Also the very last step, all those ribbon cables are glued on to the body in such a way that I could not remove them without fear of actually destroying the phone, so I had to struggle to connect the digitizerers Ribbon to the appropriate connection, this is the toughest part of the job and as I said, you dont even know if it is connected, till you put it all back together again. In that process you can bend the pins on a lot of your ribbon's by pulling them apart and reattaching.

    Just compare the price of the Digitizer to the full price of sending it in for repairs and the cost for repair is SMALL compared to the risk you are going to be taking by Doing this repair yourself.

    $30 bucks on Ebay. But the post above mine has me thinking twice. I guess it's a good idea to watch the video first.

    Alright, I saw some tutorials and read some guides. Honestly, if you are familiar with small electronic devices, it's not all "that" bad. You can't skip the detail and be careful with all of the ribbon cables. I have taken apart a Wii. Honestly, to say that the thing only has 3 exterior panels and a bajillion screws, an odd configuration of the componenets, this will be a cake walk.

    Not the cheapest

    This is not the easiest or cheapest repair. I've documented a teardown. It's doable for sure but with the cost of parts a DIY job could be risky.

    Good info! If you get the service center up and running let us know. I'm in the Baltimore area and have an OG that I can't upgrade for 1+ years so I may have to visit you should I break it! Thanks and good luck!
