    Default [TouchScreen] Accidently Broken My LCD Screen > Need Advice

    hey guys, i was walking with my iphone in my pocket and accidently ran into a table. when i looked at my screen there was a crack about half a centimeter from the bottom. The crack does half a circle but it is weird. its not on the top glass tho cause i cant feel it with my fingers. So now i cannot touch anything under the crack!
    How can i fix this?

    Thanks

    Hi

    Don't shoot the messengers

    But you will need to buy a new screen to fix this.

    You need to replace the entire LCD/touchscreen assembly.
    From what I have seen of the prices for the assembly and the amount of work required to replace it, you are better off buying a new phone and selling the old one on eBay.
