Damaged screen on BlackBerry 9700
So I've got a damaged screen by the looks of it.
At first it was only the black circle up in the top left corner, but after me, my sister, and my dad all tried playing around with it while doing the 'electrical tape fix', it ended up looking like this in the photo.
The electrical tape fix didn't work, clearly. But I'm still hearing notifications, getting calls and can answer them, just have absolutely no display. This is definitely a screen issue right? So if I buy a replacement screen, it will work?
My issue is I'm moving overseas in 4 months where I'll get a new phone. But right now I need this to keep lasting me another four months. But I can't do that without a screen display! A phone repair place wants close to $200 to replace it, which I can't afford with all these immigration & moving costs.
Where can I buy a screen, for cheap, in Australia. I've seen a few things online like Tmart (although read terrible reviews), and then some on ebay for cheaper than tmart but probably are dodgy screens. Although for $30 for a dodgy not as good screen as original, for 4 months I can probably deal with... I just want something that's going to work and hold out the next 4 months and isn't going to cost me much more than maybe $50. As well as something that will be shipped here to Australia quickly! Something ASAP! Suggestions are greatly, greatly appreciated! Thanks!
