1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    It's been a great week so far. Been on vacation this week, installed the ics leak, and had my daughter's birthday party today.
    Then as I was pulling my phone out of my pocket I dropped it and this happened.

    Looks like a shattered windshield but thankfully it is still working. Need some advice on how to replace it and if digitizers are better than others.

    Man that's tough. Unfortunately I don't have much advice other than good luck! But out of curiosity, how/on what did you drop it? Was this the first time you've dropped the phone?

    Want to know what I should specifically avoid :p

    I have dropped it a few times and have a incipio case on it. I have no idea what was different this time. I was getting it out of my pocket and lost my grip on it.
    I will be putting an otter box case and a screen protector when it is fixed.
    Guess it was a freak accident as I have not found any other threads here of this happening.
    I was under the carport when it happened, so it was on concrete

    The crystal structure of Corning glass makes them VERY fragile if hit at Just the correct spot but tough as nails otherwise.

    They are reasonably priced, do an excellent job and do mail ins

    Well I finally got around to replacing the digitizer tonight. I ordered one from eBay with the tools included. It went pretty smooth for my first time replacing one.
    I broke my sd card in the slot while putting it back together and had to pry it out. Everything works and I didn't lose anything. I thought I would be missing apps but I'm very happy I didn't. I'm curious why but I don't care right now. Hopefully my otterbox defender will be here tomorrow so this doesn't happen again. Lol
