if you bought it off ebay and had problems with it theres 2 things that coudve gone wrong in one sense.
  1. defective hardware
  2. bad installation

if you install a correct replacement digitizer, thats it. its basically plug and play if you know the term.
if you dont, plug it in the board and play with your phone.

ment to be more specific the first one i bought off of amazon just completely stopped working the day after it was installed....got a refund, bought a slightly more expensive one off of ebay and i only had problems the first 2 days after that is was smooth sailing, but if you look on ebay there are a ton of replacements:Samsung Admire Rookie R720 Vitality Digitizer Touch Screen (Metro PCS Logo) | eBay- this is a 21$ one and then there is thisOEM Metro PCS Logo Samsung Admire R720 Front Panel Touch Glass Screen Digitizer | eBay
this one is 121$ so i dont know i dont want to blow a ton of money but i dont want to be scammed, if anyone has bought a replacement and know for a fact it works could you post a link much thanks

when dealing with hardware always go for OEM.
thats an original equipment manufacturer product meaning either hardware pulled from a device or hardware from a factory and guaranteed to be compatible.
with any hardware, go for oem even if the price is a little bit more than the other. itd suck to buy something off ebay and have to go through the process of shipping it back.

i missed the 1 in front of the 121, for that price you might as well get the new phone..

however, comparing products - theyre the same, hope the cheaper one doesnt have scratches.
they both look like good quality and i dont discourage buying the cheaper one in this situation. it makes complete sense.

as far as oem goes, i stand by it, but only when the price is reasonable.

cheersl
