    Actually, my daughter did. The Lcd screen had a huge crack across it after she accidentally dropped it. I want to replace it, but every time I search for one, I get tons of lcd screen protectors ads. It's not the glass screen that I touch, it's the actual screen that does everything. Does anyone know what this part is called ?(part # or something?)
    Also if this has happened to anyone else and they have already replaced it, advise on how to will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    (P.S. She is grounded)

    She never was grounded, it was a joke. It was an accident.

    This is how it happened

    You should put some people from the Android Forums in your Comic. That'd be cool.

    Unfortunately, that sale ended before I clicked on that link, so I missed it.

    I will pm you and we can talk about how much, etc.
