    Looking for some advice on best (most cost efficient method) way to go about replacing my cracked 1520. I dropped it while getting out of the car in a gravel parking lot. The screen is visibly cracked and the touch response is transient at best. I am kicking around DIY repair (I did the same for my old 920), or taking it to the local Nokia Service Center in Bellevue. I would appreciate any advice you guys have- Thanks

    Ok the screen is glued to the digitizer and you need a heat machine to separate the two or you will end up breaking the glass. Don't be tempted in using a hair dryer as that will warp the screen. You can get a replacement but be 100% they are the official ones as there are a lot of fakes out there. May be best to take it to Microsoft or take out a 3rd party insurance then make a claim depending what country your in. In England if you go to protect my bubble then you pay 6 pound a month then make a claim on the 2nd month.

    Thanks- I leaning towards option 2. I have been unable to verify that any of the digitizer screen assemblies sold online are original.
