    Samsung Google Nexus S screen cracked - replacement or screen repair?

    Hey all

    I cracked my Nexus S screen and it's inoperable.

    Some background info: I bought it 4 months ago through Fido and it fell from the height of my desk.

    What's the warranty process like.. can Fido help or would I be directed to Samsung in order to get it repaired or have it replaced outright?

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately there's no more warranty.

    Two choices, call Fido and ask them the contact number of Samsung Tech. Support and also the third party repair center so you can ship your phone for repair. Obviously it will be at your own cost...

    Or go at the Fido Store, maybe they will be able to send the phone on your behalf to Samsung for repair. But it will be also at your own cost.

    Good Luck!

    thanks for the response Fritz!

    Do you know of any specific repair shops .. I'd imagine the turnaround period is at least a month... something of which I can't really do..

    Okay, so I ended up going to TechKnow by Front & Spadina. Ended costing me about 225 bones but I wanted it done day. Everything is working fine

    Another place I considered was Ming Wireless.. tehy were going to charge somewhere in the ballpark of $160 excluding taxes, but I had to wait until next Tuesday

    What can I say.. I'm impatient and love same day service

    I know we all love our own phones but for 350 you could have gotten a brand new one at Best Buy. I know - 100 more but you'd have a new warranty.
    I'm not telling you anything that you can't just google for yourself

    Where did you get $350 from?

    There are screens for 100 on eBay but you had to do yourself.

    Also - I was just in Best Buy and that's what it was priced at in the "unlocked" section of their phones. It's not on their website right now though - but, yes...it's in deed $350.00. Seeing as the phone is Unlocked, it really doesn't matter which 850/1900 provider you get it from (Koodo, Fido, Rogers, etc...)

    It's actually cheaper than the USA...which is rare.

    Yes, it's a cheaper selling price, but you'd be lucky to get one without also subscribing to Koodo. So, the extra price is surrendering your personal information for the subscription plus a month's fees. So, it's closer to $400 plus the information leakage.
