A couple weeks ago, Kelly dropped her phone while walking the dog. Of course, the screen broke and made the phone unusable. I moved her SIM and memory card into my old phone so she would have one to use. None of her contacts were on the new phone. So, I devised a plan to fix hers...
I bought one of the same model, pulled the brains out of it, and put the brains from hers into it. The little piece on the left in the picture is the computer part of the phone. The case on the right is her old one with the broken screen. And the phone in the middle is the new one with the brains from her old one. I haven't put the SIM in yet, but it looks like it'll work fine.
The process wasn't without drama... The back of the phone is a paper-thin piece of glass that is glued to the case. You're s'posed to heat it up with a hair dryer or heat guy and carefully pull it off. I broke it on the old one. Then I broke it on the new one. Luckily, Amazon sells replacements.
And the screws inside were absolutely microscopic. Almost too tiny for my Polish sausage fingers.
I met a guy in a park-and-ride parking lot at 7:20 this morning to get them.
