The screen is intact but very badly cracked hovever the phone is working fine. I'd like to replace the screen and I've found they are available, not only that but it doesn't look too difficult to do - there's even a video on you tube showing how to do it.

Here's a couple of suppliers on line:

1 http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B009RJORM...SIN=B009RJORMM

2 http://www.replacebase.co.uk/nokia70...nal-3120-p.asp


but there's a huge discrepancy in price, although they look the same and I wondered why? Perhaps one is the OEM and the other isn't.

Has anyone ever had a go at fitting a replacement screen and if they have are there any hidden dangers doing this yourself? On the Amazon link there's mention further down the page about an adhesive although no mention of that on the video.

Thanks.

I have replaced my screen on a nokia 5800 with digitizer and lcd but make sure you get 3m thin glue strips as the metal frame around screen will have a gap between the digitizer and lcd if you dont.

I found out that you can only get a digitizer, lcd and front assembly unit as a whole. The glue is for the bottom grill and for the earpiece

Thanks for the information.

According to the video both camera switch and earpiece are held in by double sided tape which makes it easier to transfer if required, although the speaker grill might need some adhesive.

Have you got an opinion on the difference in prices between the two supplied parts I linked to? If they really are identical then I would have to go for the Amazon one.

The links of yours only show the front assembly for only the digitizer as it has only one flex cable were it should have 2. The link here has the whole unit. Whether it is oem. Who knows? http://www.parts4repair.com/complete...kia-700-black/
