    Well I replaced my cracked screen with a full screen from RepairsUniverse and it seemed to work fine for a day or so. Now the screen is lagging. It seems like the refresh rate is slow and I can see black lines across the screen it pretty much gets to a point where it wont even scroll. Any ideas as to what can be wrong? Could it be the replacement screen or something with the phone? I contacted RepairsUniverse but the replacement policy is terrible you basically have to buy another screen and then if they decide the screen you send back is not defective you don't get the refund so now you bought two screens. I'm just trying to make this 1020 last till the next flagship phone is out.

    Is there a cheap windows phone I can buy for ATT without a contract to hold me over to the next flagship? Or should I try to fix this screen again?

    Thanks
    Dave

    Was your replacement screen an original OEM part?
    Did you try to reconnect the foils?
    Above is "screen" related.

    Did you do a soft reset.
    Did you do a hard reset or reinstall the software with the Lumia software recovery tool?

    Yes I reconnected all the foils and have done many soft resets. I don't know how to tell if it is a OEM part. How can I tell? It seems like the refresh rate is just dying on this phone.

    When you ordered it it should have been stated that it is an OEM. Not " generic " or "after marker" or whatever.
    If it is not clearly stated on the website it's probably a non OEM part.
    Can you send me the link from the part you bought?

    Here is the link to the part I bought. All it says is that's it new. I'm guessing it is not OEM. Now I can't even get the screen to display anything after reboot. it only displays a very small part at the top of the screen like where the signal strength shows. I can swipe to the right and get the list of apps but can't run anything.

    Indeed it does not state OEM so it's not an OEM part. That is why the are often cheaper but also can have "side" effects.

    You could try to place the old screen back to rule out that you damaged some component. (if that is possible

    But I also don't know what you could do more. Sorry
