    Has anyone had to do this yet or know anything about it? Lost mine in the driveway last night and totally ruined the screen. win_20131023_234858.jpg

    Touch works, but the thing just flickers and you cant tell whats going on. A quick look on ebay showed the cheapest screen I could get was $165, and I'm a poor student now. The only upside is the process doesn't look too hard, but I just cant afford $170 right now.

    Lumia 520 for $80 although not sure what phone you have above and what carrier you are on.
    Edit: Removed link from below because it is now OOS, but it pops up quite often for $80

    Screen replacement was ridiculous on my wifes 822, so we just upgraded to the 928.

    Edit 2: Re-added link because it looks like most of the stores have it in stock that you could pick up lol

    Just shipped mine off to be repaired. Luckily I got the insurance through the Microsoft Store and it's a $0 deductible. When the same thing happened with my 920 I had to pay a $125 deductuble for a new phone through Asurion (AT&T's insurance provider). I'd planned for that and since I didn't have to spend money for insurance I just bought at 520 outright to use until my 1020 gets back.

    I got it imported to Canada from Negri, ATT/MS store wouldn't ship here. Everything is against me here. I went to koodo to see about a loaner phone, the rep was very rude and said they don't do loaner phones, which seems wrong. They also don't have insurance, and I bought the phone out right anyway (when I was working and not poor)
