    Hello there,

    the top glass of my Pantech Breakout finally cracked last night. The touchscreen feat and the LCD are unharmed, but now I have the annoying cracked screen on top of everything. Luckily enough, I have found another Pantech Breakout online which is not working, but seems to have a "like-new" top glass part.

    Do you guys have any experience disassembling a Breakout and replacing the top glass?

    Thanks in advance! :thumb:

    This phone is EXTREMELY easy to disassemble. Take battery, sim card, micro sd card out. Take the 6 screws out from beneath the battery cover. Then push a fingernail between the glossy and dull plastic and work your way around to get the clips off. Carefully undo the ribbons for the various pieces. When you have the mainboard off the phone chassis, you'll see the back of the screen, a grey plastic slab. There is a ribbon with a square box that is glued to the back of this near the top, but you can work use your fingernail to pry it off and slip it through the hole in the top. Replace what you need, assembly is reverse.

    You were right. It is really easy to disassemble, following your instructions and with the right tools. I have a brand-new phone now... :)

    Thanks a lot!
