    I dropped my phone like a stupid piece of sh*t face first, this beautiful massive screen now full of flaws.

    I have looked around on the web, it seems that I have two options:

    1) Let the 'pros' do it and charge the 'labor fee'.
    2) Buy it on ebay and repair myself

    I like option two

    Has anyone attempted this task yet?
    It seems rather straight forward, I'm a tech guy, I fix computers as a side job while in college.

    This is my first phone of this type (paid for myself mind you).

    I'd like to have some sort of pre-info.

    Perhaps I will make a YouTube video How-To on repairing it unless that has already been done.

    I do have the extra 5 a month for insurance so if the sh*t hits the fan I could get some cruddy refurb from AT&T .

    If you guys have any useful info I'd appreciate it.

    Much obliged folks,

    Regards from SUNY Fredonia,
