My display broke on a skiing trip and before deciding to buy a spare display i want to be sure about the effort necessary to replace it. As far as display traders assure no soldering is necessary.
How do you open the phone to replace the display. The two screws on the right and left side of the camera won't open the phone entirely. Are you aware of instructions or other sources where the proper way of opening is desceribed?

The display being white can be due to failure of the LCD.If after removing the battery and resetting if the display still shows a whitish display then the LCD can be faulty, fault on the linking cable or the control board cannot be ruled out as it can crack as it had fallen. Remove the battery and keep the phone aside to reset and try as a last resort. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
The display being without anything on can be due to failure of the LCD.Now it is possible that the LCD can be faulty due to natural failure other that a crack or damge. Also a fault on the linking cable, the connector to the LCD or the control board needs a check. Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.
Hi.An update on replacing pesky D900I craked screen.My last post was accurate up to taking out the camera and speaker.Leave them be.
There are two ribbon cables to unplug from the keypad below the screen; You have to be v.carefull.There is a tiny flip-up hinge that must be released on each.I used a tiny screwdriver to open them.Tease the ribbon connectors out.Now the screen can be removed,however they stick em in;around the perimeter underneath where you cant see it.One has to pry up an edge near a corner whilst bending the plastic a frame a little,(I used plastic picnic knives,finger nails etc),but it will come out with care.In my case it has to;11 year old kid saved up for it!Dammed if samsung were going to beat me.Recommend reverse the procedure with a new screen from ebay;est £30.,then sell it and buy something robust.Can supply more info if you can be bothered with it all.Bye
I have done it. I have found a way to chance the speed dial settings on my Samsung D900i.
The following instructions work for my phone but I cannot guarantee they will work for everyone else. YOU WILL NEED A PEN AND PAPER.
Press Menu > select Phonebook > Speed dial (4) >Select
You should see names assigned to the numbers.
Decide which speed dial number you want to change e.g. 2 Mum Mobile (remember the name)
Press Back > Contact list (1) Select
Type in/go down to that name e.g. Mum Mobile (WRITE DOWN PHONE NUMBER BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE IT)
Press Options > Delete (5) > Select > choose Yes > Back > Speed dial (4)
You should now see that Mum Mobile has been replaced with a big number 2. This means that speed dial number 2 is un-assigned.
Press Back > Contact list (1) > Select
Decide who you want to be assigned to speed dial 2 (WRITE DOWN PHONE NUMBER BECAUSE YOU ARE ABOUT TO DELETE IT)
Press Options > Delete (5) > Select > Yes (HERE IS THE WEIRD THING)
Press Back > Create contact (2) > SIM (2) >Select
Type back in the name and number of person you have just deleted > Save > Back > Speed dial (4)
You should see that Speed dial 2 is now the person of your choice.
HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!!!!!!!
Press Back > Create Contact (2) > Select > SIM (2) > Select
Type in Mum Mobile and Number (THE FIRST NUMBER YOU WROTE DOWN) > Save.
That is it, repeat the instructions until you have all the speed dials of your choice.
Hope this helps the many frustrated D900i users out there.
Call 1-800-SAMSUNG for the service center near you. "Buying on line" I'm not sure is possible but ask the service center. They might take your credit card info and send you a display. You might be well advised to send them the phone for repair. You might get a "new" shorter term warentee on it. Copy all your info in the phone first if you can.
If you are able to get the display and don't feel comfortable replacing it yourself, take it to a phone shop, they can do it for almost nothing, if not free.
I'll be on vacation for two weeks and won't be available so I hope you get your problem solved. Good luck.
