LG150 Cracked Screen repair

I recently cracked my screen on my LG150 phone , are they worth fixing ($150.00) and if so where do I find a repair center in Western Canada ? My phone provider say`s throw it out and buy a new one , What`s with that ? Are they not repairable ?

Usually not.

Here's why. Your everyday repair shop employs people which don't work unless paid. You also have costs such as the rent and more.

This all adds up to about 60 to 120 being the base fee for any repair. Now you have to get the parts.

So if 150 is the right price and you can get it done for that amount then all you need to do is decide.

LG 150 cracked screen repair

If you call LG they'll ship you the glass for about $8. there are usually rubber plugs on the inside of the phone. use a tiny screwdriver to get the plugs out. Then unscrew the screws. They're tiny as are the plugs, careful not to lose them. Take the old screen out. Replace with new one making sure it faces correctly. Mistake I made was i got my thumb print on inside and when it was all completed had to take it apart again to wipe "inside" the screen. Put everything back in reverse order and you're all set for about 8 dollars. Hope it works for you.
