Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

Non-Working Cell Touch Screens

There are companies that can replace your cell touch screen at a reasonable fee, but if your phone is still under the manufacturer's warranty without water damage or you purchased an extended service contract/warranty through your cell provider take your phone to a store location to have your phone repaired/replaced as soon as possible. I hope this helps you all because when the screen on my Verizon DARE spider webbed for no reason I was at a loss, it was 3 days old and babied. Fortunately I got the extended service at best buy and they gave me a brand new one on the spot.

my alcatel phone touch screen is damaged, so how i operate with keypad


It would be helpful if you gave what the manufacturer and phone model were in your description. However, if you have a regular keyboard, along with a touch screen you can still use the keyboard to do some basic functions. The best way to learn the keys you should use is by reviewing your user manual. If you cannot find the original manual that came with your phone, I suggest going to the manufacturer's website and downloading it to you computer. Most phones have shortcut keys and those are defined in the user manual. Before you start using the keys, make sure your phone is "fresh" by which I mean restarted and ready to go from the home screen.

If you have a warranty with your phone, you can always use that to get a new one. Most cell companies have an average $50 - $125 deductible for insurance and you will get a new phone (sometimes refurbished). You will have needed to purchase the warranty when you originally bought the phone.

On a side note: some companies will not warranty certain phones they sell, but there are 3rd party companies which will.

broken glass touch screen to iPhone had a screw drive in pocket with iphone and it broke the touch screen glass


Hello.

Here's some info about your iPhone display repair:

Repair/replacement from Apple: $200-$250 The iPhone is covered under a standard limited one-year Apple warranty for manufacturer's defects, but is not eligible for AT&T's wireless phone insurance, which (for a $5 monthly fee) will provide replacement in the case of loss or theft, accidental physical or liquid damage or mechanical and electrical failure after the manufacturer's warranty period has expired.
Apple will repair your iPhone for the service fee listed below, plus $6.95 for shipping and handling:
  • 4GB: $199
  • 8GB: $249
Do-it-yourself: $150-$200 tools and loss of your warranty Several third-party companies sell replacement iPhone screens, which include the LCD and associated components. PDAParts sells the complete replacement screen for $150 and has a how-to-video for self-installation.

Hope this helps.

LG enV Touch freezes up intermitantly or powers down for no reason


if its still under the first year it should still be under covered by the manufacturer warranty. Call 611 on your phone and complain, they (Verizon) should off to replace it.

I dropped my Samsung Rant on its face and now the screen is completely white, but the phone still functions. The backlight works as before (bright white after touching a button, then dimmer white, then blank), but I cannot see any text or anything else. I took it to a Sprint Store and the cashier, without looking at the phone, said it can't be fixed. Was she right? Would I be better served just getting a new phone?


Somehow she's right. Samsung service center can fix your phone. But basic repair fee will be needed to repair your phone. As the manufacturer's warranty dictated, physical damage is not covered by the warranty. The basic repair fee is around $70 plus the LCD screen. I bet it would be much better to buy a new phone.
