    Hello all. Just became a WP user with the 521. Really like the phone and op system. I have only had the phone for a week but, unfortunately, it is already broken. First broken phone in over 13 years I have had a cell phone. It slipped out of my hand while getting out of my truck and it hit the pavement. I managed to slow the impact down with my leg/foot but obviously not enough. I know I should have had a case on it but I wasn't paying $30+ for the ones T-mobile sells and the one I ordered still hasn't arrived yet.

    Anyways, does anyone know where I can buy the proper 521 replacement screen other than ebay?

    Why not see how much it would cost through T - Mobile?

    Buy insurance & claim it. Pay the destructible & get new phone

    I will check with T-mobile tomorrow.

    When I bought the phone the insurance was going to be an additional $8 a month and the paper I read said the deductible was $150. Well, that just didn't seem like a good deal to me for some reason when the phone only cost $150.

    not worth the insurance when you can replace the parts or replace the phone for the same price..

    Here are some links to parts not, it say's it will fit the 521, but, I would call or try and get the dimension before ordering.

    So around $50+s/h if applicable for screen/digitizer...

    Id go the route of buying another 521. This guy has "used" 521's for $105 shipped: Great Condition Nokia Lumia 521 for T Mobile Monthly 4G | eBay

    I have no idea where this guy gets so many 521's. It's crazy.


    Havent got my order yet but another person somewhere said that his looked brand new and had the stock screen protector on it.

    Well, T-mobile was no help. Not their fault. Couldn't get a hold of Nokia to see if I could get a new screen from them but this daylight savings time crap had me call too late. Try again tomorrow but earlier.

    Thanks for all the input. I know the 510 screen is about an 1/8" too short so that would not be the best solution. Yes, it supposedly does work but I really want the proper screen if I'm going to spend the money and go through the trouble. As for buying another phone, not an option. I bought this phone using their payment plan as I just can't afford to buy a phone outright let alone buy another. Hell, that is why I went with the 521 in the first place!
