I accidentally left the flip screen facing out and put it in my purse. When I took it out to use, it looked like part of the screen was ripped or cracked from the inside, and the outside surface seems fine. There's nothing on the screen when I turn it on except for white, the black area with the crack/rip, and sometimes some random lines. When I put the pictures on my computer, they are normal
Is there a way to get just the screen fixed? If so, where, and approximately how much would it cost?

My daughters phone had the same problem. It turned out that my very magnetic purse (which I had put her phone in) messed it up. I took the phone and reran it over the battery vertically and horizontally and it started to work instantly. I guess the phones are very sensitive to magnets (purses, money clips, phone cases/holster holders) so be careful. Hope this helps!!!
hello, nothing you can do at home to fix it. You need to either have Apple replace the device or send it out to a repair specialist. If the screen was cracked when you first took it out of the box, then you can get a warranty replacement. But be advised, accidental/physical damage is not covered under warranty by Apple... half the reason people feel so negatively over subjects such as this is because they are misinformed.
You accidentally flipped the cap over backwards when you were putting the male plug on. If you are using 568B standard that starts with orange/white and ends it brown...make sure that if the orange white is on the left, then the clip on the plug is facing away from you.
same thing happened to me, i carried mine in my pocket. the glass itself doesnt crack but the lcd inside it does. you can still take pictures and videos with it but you have to hook it up to a computer to see them. ive been looking everywhere for the menus to it since i cant see them but i cant find them. everytime i put batteries in it the date resets so it always says 2006 since i cant change it. also, you can look on ebay for a similar model that has a working lcd for like 20 to 30 dollars. its fairly simple to do, but it has to be the same model.
It is possible but can be difficult. there are seven T6 screws two of the are hidden under cover plugsa the bottom right and left corners of the phone on the rear. there is also one near the top left hand corner near the antenna.Once open you will see that the phone has a ribbbon cable that connects the flip to the main board. Carefuly remove the cable and replace the flip..then make sure to seat the new flip correctly and replace the backhousing and screws..good luck
