    Question Scratches on my BB Screen

    Advertisement



    The first few minutes I owned my Curve, I stupidly put it in my pants pocket, along with my keys and some loose change. As you can guess, my screen got scratched. Does anyone know of a product that will remove these scratches? Or, does anyone know if I can purchase a replacement screen?

    Armor All will usually do it as will PASTE (non-gel) toothpaste......

    They both work great - armor all for lighter ones and toothpaste for deeper ones.....

    Scratches -use Brasso

    Brasso instructions state that it can be used to clear scratches from watch crystals.

    I personally have used this previously on my TREO with great success.

    Good news is, like BenMarvin said, you can buy a replacement lens cheap. The actual screen (lcd) is behind the plastic lens.

    After you get a replacement, just pull your old one off starting at the ear slot. Put the new one in place and you are done.

    Is it the the top cover that snaps on and off or is the screen a standalone piece?

    Sounds like people have had success with all sorts of methods. I've personally used Novus polishes www.novuspolish.com. They have three formulas that address small to heavy scratches.

    I didn't either so I ordered a whole new housing for my Curve! LOL Then I ordered the Novus polish per the advice of another Stacker and it worked really well.

    The top piece snaps off, you don't even need to take the phone apart. Just pry the lens loose from the top (best place to start is the ear port). Clean any left behind glue, then put the new one on.

    If I have the full housing, I can just replace the face plate and not mess with the lens, then, correct? And if I'm reading this right, the face plate will just pop off and I can snap the new one in its place?

    The beauty of BB's is that its hard to prove that you actually took it apart...Well unless you don't get the cnn.cn labels off

    K, so nobody confirmed it for me. Will the faceplate just pop off and then I can easily snap the new one on in its place?
