Question about Samsung SCH-u740 Cellular Phone
I somehow broke the outside LCD display screen, this further caused the inside LCD screen to be damaged. I need to repair phone, can this be done AND save the items saved in memory? i have thought about buying a used replacement and switching the top flip section of the phone, is this possible?
I believe they would like to know if the top section can be removed and replaced. The answer is yes.
To remove the top section you must remove the outer housing around the hinged area. There is a screw on the back side of the hinge housing at the top of the back near the center. Remove this screw.
Now flip open the phone the narrow way (not to use as a qwerty keyboard, but rather as a regular flip phone), and you see a covered screw - pry out the cover carefully (use a plastic thumb tack or a safety pin maybe), and then take out the screw.
Now, the housing covering the double hinge is ready to be removed. with the phone just as you had it, pull on the housing hard to the hinge side. It should move about a 1/4 inch. Now carefully flip the phone the other way and pull hard again. (not so hard that you think you will break the plastic).
Now you will see the ribbon cable that is wrapped around the hinge parts, allowing the hinge to open both ways while maintaining connectivity, as well as two screws on the hinge mechanism.
Remove these screws, and the screen section should slide out of the hinge.
That's as far as I've gotten. The ribbon cable would need to be unplugged from one end or the other in order to totally disconnect the two main parts of the phone.

Yes you can do this but it is safe to take the phone to a mobile repair shop and have them repair it for you.
