    so much for gorilla glass. first time I drop it....CRACK! it's really not that bad. couldn't even see it at certain angles on certain colors. I'm in Atlanta. anyone know of a good place to get repairs.

    this winter effect the compacitive touch keys will it? I've seen the glass replacement for as low as 37$

    check ebay, but you might want to just use your warranty in the store also, never know what might have got mess up internally.

    yeah. I've got a really nice 30$ case on it. i will say one thing though. any other screen would've cracked into more pieces. I've seen iPhones that looked like a car wreck from one drop. on my keyboard it cuts through from the letter w downwards to the letter x and farther down to the home key.

    it's very thin and contained. some people did not notice.

    :eek:; if you don't mind, what is the brand? I am buying a Trident case; it has good reviews.

    it's a shell combo. first a latex body glove goes on.then a thick back price goes on which snaps onto the front piece. the front part extends 1.5cm outwards to prevent the screen from scratching anything or touching anything.

    it has a kickstand that snaps out. not sure of the brand.bought my esteem used. came with case. it's not a Trident though .

    $30 for a phone case is not cheap, i mean, at least the quality about the same with Trident/ Otterbox..etc...

    Gorilla glass is mostly meant to protect against scratches. It does flex and that can cause the screen below it to get cracked. What did you drop it on and from how high though?

    it was on my lap when I was in the car. got out, and as I stood up to take a step forward I ended up dropping the phone from my lap( forgot it was in my lap) and actually, I stepped on it too, it was dark. :'(

    +1 I used to have 1 of those bricks as a backup. That thing was older than me and through all the abuse I put it through it never broke. I loaned it to my brother and told him no matter what I wanted it back. The next day he said it dropped and broke into pieces and threw it away. He hit the floor and broke too lol

    I think we can use the lg revolution digitizer also and it's a bit cheaper. Does anyone know if it's the same part?

    The iPhone 4 and 4s have glass backs too. Just about the entire phone shatters.

    It's not. The Revolution has a 24-bit screen, the Esteem has a 18-bit screen.

    Anyone got instructions on how to change the digitizer?

    Well you see those screws under the back cover?

    I would find a disassemblely guide for the Rev or esteem online and just kinda modify the instructions to get to the part you need :)

    Don't go in and just start taking it apart or you will end up losing a piece or accidentally breaking a connector ;)
