Hello,

My screen cracked on monday, when it fell from half a meter to the ground (it was with a screen protector and the original case).

I've got back it today with a new screen from my mobile provider. The positive thing, the screen and the repair cost around 70 dollars.

To keep for a few days my 2 n9, however, prefer to use my first purchase, it is already updated to pr1.2 while the second purchase is a cv switzerland still standing at PR1.1. Maybe in a few days I'll sell it, I have yet to decide whether to keep or give away as a spare car to my family ... to make sure I always have one ready ... hahaha ... I really think that the swipe is almost a drug with many other functions ... in fact I want to use swipe on all phones (not n9) of my friends ... (s2-iphone-htc. .. etc etc. ..) but you can not ... hahaha ...
greetings and congratulations to all the good forum for daily updates.
Hello.
Great to know that you have the big brother back
Now only if Nokia will make phones with tempered glass!!
Gorilla glass is not typical Nokia strong. All Nokias should be made like the indestructible 3300 series!

Did you get your phone repaired in Peru? 70 dollars is a real bargain! In the US the screen costs more than 100 dollars.

Yes, I've got my phone repaired in Peru, in Movistar (as I bought the phone from them). Yes I know (I do some research because one of my options was to buy a screen from ebay and replaced it myself) that it's not expensive at all. Don't know why the price difference.

Greets!

I'm in exactly the same situation. Got all screws out except the top-right silver one which wouldn't budge and is now stripped. Put the phone back together without 4 screws and the retaining clip thing and it's working fine! So until I can borrow a mini dremel type thing and extract/kill the offending screw (and probably break the phone at the same time) I'm still with a black case, but I shouldn't to worry about a missing screw afterwards - we'll have just upgraded to a very slightly lighter version of the standard n9!

Whereabout this?

Here in London the local Nokia Care Point asked 120 pounds for the fix.
At first I thought it was expensive, now I realize it's very cheap!

But if I can find a cheaper alternative, I'd go for that, even if that means changing it myself (as I did for my N900 LCD )

Hi Everyone - I'm new to the forum. I successfully replaced my N9 screen (it was cracked) and housing (from black to blue) this weekend. The hardest part was probably knifing the white screen frame piece off the old screen and gluing it onto the new one.

However, I have run into a minor problem, which i just discovered this morning. it appears that one small area of the screen is not registering directional swipes. It's not really noticeable unless you are using the swype keyboard, so the phone is fully usuable for the time being.

Even though I can deal with not fixing it, I'm wondering if anyone can help me diagnose the problem. Could it be one of the metallic prongs on the back of the screen is not making good contact? Or is it the screen connector itself? Or is it a damaged screen? Any help would be appreciated.
