    Question 8700c Screen Cracked

    Advertisement



    The screen on my BB is cracked. I went into one of the MANY cell phone shops in New York City, and asked how much it would be to replace the screen. The guy says, "My technician says that the 8700 series screen is VERY difficult to replace. He says he can do it for $99"

    ... Now, I don't know much about the "technical" side of a BlackBerry ... but $99 for a cracked screen seems alot. How much is a new screen? Maybe $20 at most? And the service to fix the screen? It can't be too complicated and take too much time? Maybe 15 minutes?

    I checked, and a cracked screen isnt covered by my warrantee. Also, I dont have insurance for the phone, so that wasnt an option.

    Can someone tell me if there is a website to buy a new screen? And an online guide about how to replace a n 8700c cracked screen. If I can do it myself great. If not, I can at least take the guide to the guy and talk him down.



    Let me know. Thanks!

    Yikes! I'll take a look for a screen for you. At $99 to fix, you might as well buy a new one.

    You should be more careful!

    There are so many of us unfortunate PinStackers who dream of owning an 8700c and you take yours for granted! LOL

    Just kidding man. I'm sure these guys have a cheaper solution for ya!

    Question Re: 8700c Screen Cracked

    I'm a little confused. I checked out bbrepairshop.com
    ... does that mean that I would need a "Replacement housing kit for BlackBerry 8700c"? That costs $89.99 .... and that doesnt include shipping or the actual repair. Am I looking at the correct thing?

    At this point, it looks like $99 isnt so bad....

    As much as it may hurt to hear, $99 isn't too bad.
