    I have a crack on my screen and im wondering if its possible to seal it up with that anti scratch gel they sell on amazon, or if I should buy a new digitizer, and if I have to buy a new digitizer, would the one from the LG from verizon work?

    Are you cutting your finger on it? I would just replace the digitizer. Yes, Verizon's version of the Esteem is the LG Revolution and it will work just fine.

    You can get the lcd or digitizer on eBay for cheap, whichever you need. Taking the phone apart is common sense, not to hard at all. I'm sure there is plenty of videos on the install to.

    Im pretty good hardware wise. I have another question, I didnt want to make another thread for it. I downgraded to the 55$ plan, and I noticed I dont have 4g 100% of the time and its pretty annoying, is this normal?

    It all depends on your location and metro updating.

    Nothing should have changed data wise. I would reset your prl via *228 option 5 and see if that helps.

    It could be that your going over the limit now that you dont have true unlimited 4g.

    It's hard to find any plan that is 100 percent true unlimited. It's unlimited in that you can use the data connection unlimited BUT that doesn't mean your going to have "faster" speeds through the entire time. Which is why you have plans that have a 5GB or 2GB cap for "full" 4G speeds. That's how they get people. If they said "unlimited 4G data at full speed" then I'm sure people would look at their plans more closely before purchasing them.

    yea digitizer is easy to replace if you're the least bit mechanically savvy. Hell I did it w/o power even lol.

    And yes the revo is the same parts.
