    I have a blackberry curve 8520 but I think something happened last night that screwed up the screen. The phone still totally works, I can recieve calls and texts and use the camera but all the screen shows is white with some sketchy black lines on it so I can't actually USE it.

    I tried soft/double soft reset and taking out the battery... is there anything else that would fix it?

    Did you drop the phone? Need a little more info than that. You can try to reloading the OS to the phone to see if that helps or it sounds like it could be a hardware problem.

    Sorry, yeah I did drop it. I've been doing a little research and I guess the only thing I can do is get the screen replaced? Is that expensive?

    If youre pretty technically inclined and can follow these step by step instructions then it should be pretty simple.


    A new screen can be purchased here for pretty decent price if you want to do it yourself. If not then take it to your local carrier or a cell phone repair shop.

    Thank you so much! I think I'll be able to do it myself. Last question... I was looking on ebay for replacement lcd screens but there are different kinds of them for the 8520? Like the numbers that are like 005/004 or 007/011 etc. How do I know which one is the one I need for my phone? My phone is from Fido in Canada if that makes any difference.
