Hi, My motorola was dropped. The screen was the only thing that cracked. Now I tested it and found that I could still use the joystick to navigate but then the phone now continuous reboots itself and sometimes does not get past the Motorola 3G
screen. It just reboots. After a while (leaving the battery out and then connecting it again) it starts fine, stays on for some time and reboots and gets into a loop hole again. If it receives a sms it does the same. Is the phone damaged completely or will getting a new screen solve my problem. Please help me as I don't know where to turn and I just saved up for this phone. Where can I get a screen as it is not available where I stay (in Zimbabwe) Please can anyone help me.
You will need to get the phone flashed that means get all of the phone settings and files installed again then ur phone will have none of the files u stored on the phone but if its on the memory card they will not be wiped out

The motorola A1000 does have a signal problem, however a signal booster has been released and can be purchased by following this link: http://www.mobilephonecrazy.com/modeldetail/a1000,Signal_booster.htm
The screen of the a1000 model is composed of 2 parts, the lcd display and the touchscreen pannel wich are both secured in the same housing, protected by a metal frame. Even if you only broke the lcd screen (and the touchscreen is still ok) in most cases, a service center will replace the entire screen assembly. It will cost somewhere around $100-200 depending on wich service center you choose. If you try this operation in a service center, the costs will be greater because you will buy a new screen and pay the labour part. It would be greater if you can buy a second hand broken a1000 with a good display and change it yourself. A1000 and the P9xx series are very easy to dissasemble and work with. You may receive further informations and pictures if you reply with this request.
The short answer would be to try to avoid a service intervention to the phone. It will be very expensive. the a1000 model was made in 2003 so the spare parts that can be found today are expensive and hard to find. Try finding a second hand unit, you may strike a good deal with it.
A1000 are pretty buggy as phones. This may have a lot of causes, most of them because of the software installed, lack of internal memory and so on. When I had my first A1000 I was facing similar problems or the phone simply restarted when I was browsing the menu or things like that. A solution for these problems is a ROM update.However you will need a USB cable, a interface program between the phone and the computer and a ROM file (containing flex and flash). All of this were found on www.machman.gotdns.com but it seems the site is offline now. I'll try to search some of this for you but they are pretty hard to find as these kind of things are done in a phone service facility. Sorry for I can't assist you faster then this.
