    Hi All

    My son loves his SF but has cracked the screen and it no longer responds to the touch. Is it possible to source and fit a screen? Orange want to charge almost the cost of a new device! If I can't do it is there an outfit out there who would do it at a more reasonable price? Buzzbox didn't have a spare...

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Welcome to the forums! :)

    I can't seem to find a replacement screen either unfortunately, sorry.

    There was a thread recently with a video that showed how to replace the screen. Gimme a bit and I'll see if I can dig it up for you. Obviously moot if you can't get a screen though.

    Seen them sold on ebay with broken screens, so others may have had the same experience.

    They seem to go for half price, so if you have insurance and get half price for the old unit, you may find a working model, probably not new, on eaby or similar, that will replace your broken one for not much outlay?
