    Hey, i'm new to android forum. Yesterday i broke the display to my HTC, the screen turns on but the touch screen isn't working so i can't unlock it. I bought the phone from carphone warehouse, so i was wondering if it would be cheaper to get a repair from HTC or from carphone warehouse? And if someone has an idea of how much it would cost?

    The digitizer costs ~$20, so expect $60 or more.

    If you are confident about you skills in electronic device disassembly you can do it your self... I can assist you on Skype if you want...

    Which wild fire S do you have CDMA or GSM? We have the touch screen digitizer and LCD available and ready to ship. We provide many resources to help you repair your device such as tools, videos, guides, email and live chat support.

    I have the CDMA models, and need to see if I can figure a certain way to "recalibrate" after replacing the digitizer.

    There are many sets of "instructions" out there, but none of them seems to definitively work on the CDMA version. I'm wondering if anyone can speak to that "for sure."

    Hey guys, I have the same problem. Phone powers up, screen works, touchscreen won't accept input. Cracked.

    I am pretty good with electronics, but I don't want to hamfist it and brick it.

    Who do I sent it to for repair, and how much?

    TIA

    Chris

    No one does this repair for a fee? I pay, out the door pricing? Or is the phone not worth repairing?

    At this point in time I personally don't think that it would be worth the effort and money. You can get a Rise for $50, Venture or Chaser for $80 on Virgin Mobile USA, they are all Android phones.
