Changing the screen: have you found a replacement screen?

Hello everyone,

Has anyone managed to find a replacement screen for the Jolla ? Or a screen a + digitizer ?

Jolla support was asking for 120 € for the screen replacement, considering the phone was bought for ~320 €, it seemed a bit steep at the time.

At this point though, this might still be the best/only solution to replace the broken screen on the phone.

Thanks!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It seems possible to order a spare screen from India:

Since from the website it says that they are only shipping to India, you should send them an email and ask if they ship it to your country. Opening the phone to get the broken screen-unit out is then just peanuts ;-)

Nice find! Unfortunately, I checked with maxbhi.com and their answer was a rather laconical:

''Dear Sir,

Thank you for inquiry and writing to us but we don't ship overseas, we ship only in INDIA.

Thanks & Regards,''

As India is in all caps, you can bet they're pretty serious about not shipping elsewhere.

Anyway, I'll see if I can have a friend in India get it for me, but it's a bit ridiculous to have to that in the day of the Internet.

Lastly, they sell screen, digitizer or screen + digitizer together.

From the looks of it, only my screen is broken, not the digitizer. But from what I understand, changing just the screen is a lot harder than screen + digitizer.

Hmm, what to do…
