    So I have gotten this far into trying to removing the cracked screen:

    But now I'm not sure where to remove the "frame" to reach to the glass. At first I thought it just came down to removing the "frame" on top of the glass, but it seems the "frame" is actually integrated to the plastic frame outside. Not sure if I'm making any sense but here's what I mean:

    So yeah, do I just pop the screen out from behind it and out of the front panel or am I missing something? I like to make sure what I'm doing here before I proceed further as I don't want this phone to be un-usable due to a minor mishap. I hope to get some replies about this ASAP! :)

    I read that thread many times and it just notes how to put it on; the site just sells the item but doesn't explain how to do it. I know if you think in reverse then you think it would snap off away from the black housing but I'm beginning to believe the glass is possibly glued to the black housing... either that or they really did a tight seal on it and I just have to get the nerve to break it off.

    So really, did anyone actually try to attempt this? Is it glued or just extremely tight-lipped? Regardless, how did anyone remove it? From the front or back of the housing?
