    So I bought myself a new screen for my mobile phone, a Samsung SGH-D600. The old one is full of scratches.

    Problem is: how to put this screen on the phone.

    I know it is not pc related, but there are many specialists on this forum, so I thought to give it a try.

    Does anyone have a manual or instruction material on how to do this?

    Thanks.

    Do you mean the plastic thing that covers the actual display? Most of them are glued in with double sided tape, and if you can neatly get underneath it to pry it up, you can remove the old one, apply some new glue to the new one, and stick it on there. Mine has proven to be really scratch resistant, and I will have a new phone before I consider doing that :D.

    Yes, this is exactly what I mean. I will give it a try tomorrow.

    Well, used the hair dryer from my wife to heat up the screen. Used a small needle to pop up the screen. The glue stayed neatly on the phone. Applied the new screen and now it is as good as new!

    Thanks for the tips guys!
