    if you bought it off ebay and had problems with it theres 2 things that coudve gone wrong in one sense.
    1. defective hardware:(
    2. bad installation:mad:

    if you install a correct replacement digitizer, thats it. its basically plug and play if you know the term.;)
    if you dont, plug it in the board and play with your phone. :D

    ment to be more specific the first one i bought off of amazon just completely stopped working the day after it was installed....got a refund, bought a slightly more expensive one off of ebay and i only had problems the first 2 days after that is was smooth sailing, but if you look on ebay there are a ton of replacements:[​IMG]Samsung Admire Rookie R720 Vitality Digitizer Touch Screen (Metro PCS Logo) | eBay- this is a 21$ one and then there is this[​IMG]OEM Metro PCS Logo Samsung Admire R720 Front Panel Touch Glass Screen Digitizer | eBay
    this one is 121$ so i dont know i dont want to blow a ton of money but i dont want to be scammed, if anyone has bought a replacement and know for a fact it works could you post a link much thanks

    when dealing with hardware always go for OEM.
    thats an original equipment manufacturer product meaning either hardware pulled from a device or hardware from a factory and guaranteed to be compatible.
    with any hardware, go for oem even if the price is a little bit more than the other. itd suck to buy something off ebay and have to go through the process of shipping it back.

    i missed the 1 in front of the 121, for that price you might as well get the new phone..

    however, comparing products - theyre the same, hope the cheaper one doesnt have scratches.
    they both look like good quality and i dont discourage buying the cheaper one in this situation. it makes complete sense.

    as far as oem goes, i stand by it, but only when the price is reasonable.

    cheersl
