Default Samsung Fascinate Take Apart Guide

Hi,

We have just finished our take apart video guide for the Samsung Fascinate. We go through the process step by step and provide details of which tools are required. We had a lot of people requesting this who needed to replace parts to repair their phone, and it may also be of interest for those who are simply interested in seeing "what's under the hood".

You can view our guide here - Samsung Fascinate Touch Screen Digitizer and LCD Screen Repair Guide

Please let us know if you have any questions or recommendations for improving the guide.

Hope it helps.

Paul Weatherley
