    Good evening fellow android users. I have always been a fan of the open-source android project, and am pretty adamant against using most apple products. I have never really looked much into the android community until now, because I need help (I bet you've heard this one before). I will post in the Galaxy spica board after here, but I thought I might as well state my problem here anyway:

    A couple of months ago I dropped my Spica on the tiled bathroom floor and the glass touchscreen popped off. It is perfectly intact, but has been disconnected from the thin copper wire that attaches it to the rest of the phone. Would I need to buy a new touchscreen off of ebay or would I just be able to solder it back together?

    Hello and welcome to Android Forums, Broked. :)

    I'm not entirely sure about soldering it back on, but if you still have a warranty they should replace it for you. :)

    So since the spica forums are pretty dead, any recommendations on where to ask?

    You can give this question a shot in the Android Lounge. Maybe somebody there will be able to help you out. Good luck!
