Replacing broken screen
The screen on my Bold 9780 broke a few weeks ago, and the phone has been rendered useless.
However, I'm finding it very difficult to part with the phone! I've been reduced to using a Sony Ericsson W810i for the time being.
My contract is up for an upgrade in 3 months' time, so I dont want to purchase another phone.
Im thinking about replacing the screen myself.
Is this possible? is it a sensible plan?
Has anyone here replaced the screen on a Bold 9780?
Any help or guidance would be really great!
Ive found spare screens on ebay going at approx £20 - £25.
Thanks for any input!!

First make sure you have the proper lcd screen replacement number and dont purchase from CHINA you`ll be sorry...you need the right tools as well T5 +T6 screw drivers and a plastic pry tool also locate how to disassemble 9700 series blackberry on YOUTUBE.
Its very easy to do.
It will show you everything..Good luckPaul Atherton

Hey... it was an easy job to replace the LCD. I just did it a few weeks ago.
Only problems was I had to take out the old LCD to see which model I had. Not a tough job but meant I had to order the tools first and then the LCD after.
I'm sure you can pop to a a phone repair shop and give them a few quid to take the LCD out... or buy the screwdriver from them.
The screen on ebay cost me £16 btw.
The tools arrived this morning; I've managed to carefully take apart the Bold 9780.
The screen has the following on the back:
I've found a match on eBay for a replacement screen with the number "001/111".
Just wanted to confirm that these numbers are all that need to match....please let me know if I'm missing any other details, before I place the order for a replacement screen on eBay!
