Cracked Screen and LCD - No Froyo - Options?
So I have been patiently waiting for the Froyo update only to ruin my screen today.
I dropped the phone. The glass and LCD need repair. I do not have the insurance. The phone does still work. I could originally see about 25% of the screen and did make a phone call.
I am waiting to contact the HTC repair center on Monday. Does HTC repair these things? Is their a reputable service to send the phone in to?
I see there are some parts available. Would I just need a digitizer and LCD to repair this?
Thanks guys. Sad day for me....

Well it fell off a table 30 inches high on to the floor. I'd expect maybe some light damage but I wouldn't expect the glass to shatter and the lcd to be destroyed.
I didn't have a case on it. It looks like the phone must have landed on a corner and the LCD underneath must come right to the edge.
Is the digitizer and the LCD the only required parts?
I saw this video which is helpful. It looks like they sell the digitizer ($70) and LCD ($120).

Does anyone know if HTC offers a direct repair service and how much it might cost?

The digitizer it was is considered the "touch glass" part. The LCD is the underlying parts. So yes the cracked part, as long as it doesn't go all the way down, is all you need. You should do a writeup when you do it too!!
