Question about Samsung Tocco F480 - Pay Monthly Cellular Phone

Samsung tocco 480 screen is cracked/broken

I have dropped my samsung tocco and as a result the screen is cracked when i turn my phone on!! It looks like a broken mirror so to speak, the phone does not look damaged on the outside but when it is turned on the screen has a shattered appearence to it. I would be extremely grateful if someone could tell me 1, if this is just a case of replacing the screen and 2, whether there is likely to be an internal problem too!! The phone does work when it is turned on i.e. the screen saver and text message icon comes up but 3/4 of the screen is unviewable. I have tried to plug the phone into my pc to access the text messages but they will not come up now since the phone was dropped. Thank you, kind regards. Stef

    Hi Olmo,



    Thank you for your reply! You have been very helpful. As you said the phone does actually work and the LCD screen is the problem.... needs replacing. Thank you for the link for this site, it to has been very helpful. One more thing, do you know if fitting the new LCD screen is straight forward and simple? I have never fitted one before.



    Thanks and kind regards,



    Stef

The screen should keep working with the LCD cracked. i.e you should be able to receive calls.

  • Hello Stef,

    The installation is not difficult. It doesn't requiere soldering or special tools. I recommend you dismantle the devide before ordering the screen. So you make sure that nothing else is damaged inside the phone.
    You can use the corner of a credit card to open the housing, after removing any screws.

Lg viewty vs samsung tocco ??????


hi, i work in the mobile industry and own a tocco myself. I would say that for looks the tocco is best but the camera can be slightly fuzzed. The viewty has had reports of software problems but im sure these are quite easily fixed. As per the touch screen, the tocco is more sensitive so is easier for texting but it is heat activated so cant be used wearing gloves or with a stylus, the viewty for the touch screen does need slight pressure applied. Widgets are actually available on the viewty as well, can just be a bit tricky to activate them. Obviously the tocco is much slimmer and lighter. All in all though i would say that samsung is a more trusted make, with less promblems occuring. Why not look into th new LG renoir and The samsung Omnia, bit more expensive but im sure they will have just the features and looks your after and the software is more updated. Hope i have helped!!.....J
