The screen on my samsung double flip phone has gone white, what do I do to fix it?

I guess that is a Verizon Cellphone. It is most likely that the LCD has lost grip or contact from the main board or has gone bad . 1. You may disassemble it and check the LCD contact points on both the board and the screen...detatch attach it firmly or
2.You may have to replace the LCD completely.See what the LCD looks like here ....
I hope this helps you.
Good luck !

hi thanks for using fixya!

Unfortunately, you cannot. Verizon phones have integrated SIM cards that you cannot take out. You cant unlock a verizon phone.

Intermittent call quality

MY03- your phone could have microphone and antenna problems seeing that the phone had drop so many times.....the curcuit board could have a hairline fracture so it would be best to take it to a mobile repair shop and have them diagnosed it for correct the issues.

DMR - try hard resetting your phone and see if that helps press *2767*3855#

It wont txt other carriers

this happened to me once with picture messages too, and i just called verizon and they took me through a step by step process and helped me fix it. I think it was that my phone just needed to be flashed or upgraded or whatever. They give you the number to call and do this.

I have had three SCH- u740 cell phones and all of them burn up battery life

sounds like a short to me. I had a similar problem on a PDA phone the carrier replaced the battery and cured the problem.
