Question about T-Mobile Sidekick II

Need to replace broken screen on sidekick 2

I've seen different posts regarding this but Idk, maybe I'm just that dense but I can't figure out how to do it. I was hoping someone could give me a step by step instruction on how to replace the screen. I dropped my phone and the screen is almost all cracked and black. Everything else works. My friend is sending me his old sk2 since he upgraded to the 3 but his buttons don't work and it's hard to charge. So I figure why not just take both phones and make one good one. So...any help would be much appreciated. Thank you so much, hope y'all have a good day. -Amri

    I just watched the video for changing lcd screen for sidekicks. My question is -- where can i buy a replacement screen? any suggestions? t-mobile wants to charge me $350 stating my 6 mth phone has water damage because the sensor under the flip screen is partially pink, most likely because this sensor is exposed to the elements unlike the sensor that are still completely white which are enclosed inside the phone. no water damage happened. Just a problem with my screen fading. Help Please!!

Replacing broken parts on my sidekick 3


turn the screen 90 degrees, you will see 2 screws unscrew those to give the screen a light pull and itll come right off,
then you can reach the final screw in the corner. This Requires A T6 Screw Driver
Plz be Sure To Mark the Problem Solved
