    Hi Folks,

    I thought this video might be interesting to everyone wanting to see how I replaced the cracked screen on my old Torch 9810. I used the screen from a water-damaged White Torch I had from a friend that never booted up again, so I didn't know how badly damaged it was. I took a chance that the LCD slider was ok, so I went ahead and swapped the fronts. The White Torch had some button issues, so I could have just replaced the LCD but it was harder to do that (plus risk of even more damage) than just living with some missing buttons (although the gold does give a C3PO effect).

    Thanks. While I've moved on to using my Z10 at this point, I still like having the Torch around for Wi-Fi Web surfing, taking photos and videos, reading news feeds, checking weather and so on. Can't bear to throw it out as it still works. I still have my Curve 8900 which I also opened up and repaired the track pad and also a damaged keyboard, which was my phone before the Torch.

    If you look at the complexity of the build you will see why BlackBerry today would be losing money on a slider phone like this. The all touch is much simpler and cheaper to make, more reliable and the typing accuracy is best of all mobile OS's out there.
