Vista LCD and digitizer are easy to replace. They aren't bonded together like many of the higher end phones. The screen is stuck to the frame with adhesive tape which is easily removed with the heat gun. The lcd is just laying in the frame below it. You must remove the back plate which is held on by screws, then remove camera modules, boards, etc so they won't be damaged when you heat it. Also you have to unplug the ribbon cables to remove the digitizer and LCD. All the components are modular and are easily replaced. I wouldn't hesitate to do it myself. Especially if you have done this type repair before.

Most people are using the 3M double sided tape. If you look it up on EBay you'll see it. It's really thin and can be bought in thin pre cut strips.

It's really not that hard. The first you pull the back off take off out all the little screws take the computer part out and start wiggling on the screen its very simple and it'll fall right in your lap but I would almost bet anything that your LCD display screen is cracked I never changed just a touch screen always both digitizer and LCD

totally accurate. i switched out the digitizer only because the screen appeared to be working. I put it back together only to find that the lcd was indeed broken. Anyone know where to find a replacement?

Don't know if I posted, but found parts for $24.95. If this works, you got your phone back! If not, you've got nothing anyway. Do it yourself.

They're right. Replace both. About $100.

No there not...I spent $35 on parts at Amazon.com and I got the screen protector and a slide case/belt clip too.

Amazon had the digitizer and screen combo for $15 from Centaurus Electronics. I've ordered it twice now and it is the full touch screen. My son is really clumsy (lol). Get an electronics screwdriver set for the tiny screws (usually T10 but I have seen some phones as small as T6 screws). The wires have "snaps" but do not pull them. Lift at the snap to remove.

I am actually looking for a parts diagram for this model if anyone knows of one existing. I need the top plastic frame for a proper repair. Otherwise the digitizer doesn't sit properly even in a protective case. Thanks
