    Mine's cracked too.. I've looked online for parts to fix it myself, but it looks like it'd be cheaper just to file and insurance claim on it with at&t ($120)
    If you find cheaper parts, let me know..
    Good luck and I hate it for ya!

    Yeah, i see that.. On ebay the screen + digitizer is like $130..!
    Nokia have a 1 year warranty, but I'm not sure if it covers a cracked screen..

    Ok, I bit the bullet and ordered a screen+tools from ebay.. It came in, and I replaced the screen (it was easier than I thought).
    One problem: the bottom buttons aren't very sensitive.. They aren't lit up completely as well. Before (even with a cracked screen) I could barely touch the back button or search button and it would immediately react. Now I have to use the meaty part of my thumb and rub it around and around, and eventually it will react.. PLUS: sometimes the buttons will just react on their own.. I will be watching a youtube video or reading an email, and the "speak to command" menu will pop up..

    Is this a bad screen, or do I not have it hooked up right?

    If you bought it off ebay it's probably not an original Nokia screen. That may be as good as the back button gets.

    I bought the $80 used screen off ebay. It works perfectly. My 900 is not new so I figured what the hey. It actually looks more crisp and my pictures look better on it. Mine was v04 and the replacement was v06. My screen was not broken it was just scratched qnd drove me crazy. I now have a brand new phone. Long live Lord Vader!
