    HTC now has an in store fix for the flying screen syndrome but you can do this at home. Take a credit card or similar type of item and wedge it in between the screen and the phones frame lifting the screen bottom as much as you can without causing further lifting damage. Then remove the battery door and locate the two holes in the photo with the tooth picks. Put a couple drops of crazy glue in each hole then remove the credit cards and quickly clamp the screen down for about a half hour. Clothes pins might work as make shift clamps try therm before starting. If you can get your screen up enough to put the crazy glue tip directly under the screen you can do this also but use very little glue and dot it maybe 4 times across the area for a good even hold then clamp. I would tape off the screen and phone frame just in case some leaks out by accident doing this method.

    Once the screen is secure use automotive black silicone adhesive sealant I like Permatex brand found at WalMart (now this stuff can also be used to glue the screen down but will take longer to dry 12 hours put it on a tooth pick and shove it under the lifted screen bottom then clamp) You can take this black silicone and dab a small amount around the screen crack and with your finger or a q tip force it in the light leak crack then simply take a tissue and wipe off any excess silicone before it sets you will have no damage to the phone from spilling it just wipe it off. You should now just have a tiny bit shoved in the crack with all the rest wiped off. let it set and you are done!

  2. Or call sprint and get a replacement. If the screen is coming apart, that is a manufacturer defect and is covered by the warranty.

    +1. Great fix for someone who bought the phone used but no way would I fix a manufacturing defect within the 1 year warranty period.

    True..True.. It wasn't very hard talking the rep into giving me a new Droid when my keyboard crapped out but that was Verizon. Haven't had to deal with sprint yet about warranty issues.

    that crap sounds like some tweeker fix, but i can tell you this, sprint it way better than Verizon, or frontier or whatthe**** ever they are calling themselves, and if anyone knows anything about crazy glue, they know it f%$ks up glass and leaves a gnarly film. you would be amazed how terribly you could mess up your device, being stupid and trying something like that out.

    DON'T BE DUMB!!!

    I called Sprint about my screen separation and they said they will have a new one at my door within a week with a kit for sending back the defective one. Maybe if i was several months into the phone i would try this, but if its new there's really no reason to.
