    Hello.

    I have this HTC phone, like a desire or something that used to be my sisters, until she broke it. Then my dad tried to fix it, amd he broke it even more. Basically the whole screen is off it won't display anything at all. So, it being worth nothing to them, I took it thinking that maybe some day I can get it fixed by a professional and have a phone just to use Apps on.

    I was wondering if there is a place online where I can send the phone to and have it fixed for cheaper than what it will cost locally. Here it will cost $125.00 top have the screen replaced. Is there a site that can be cheaper?
    Thanks

    I have an OG Droid I can send you to not mess with repairing that Desire. ;)
    Like Funky said, I think the thing is toast.
    But, if you're looking to burn $100+, look into some used older phones like a Nexus S or any other unlocked device to use. Might find a gem out there. :)

    Just looking for a device to play with apps on. Maybe for other things such as learning to root.
