Last week I lent on my C550 with my knee. When i took it out my pocket, the LCD was cracked in 2 places, and the screen was covered with 'pretty' patterns. The phone works, as it can still receive incoming calls.
Its not the end of the work tho, as I recently upgraded to a Hermes, and was only using the C550 as I was on a beach, and didnt want the Hermes to get trashed. Thank f**k it wasnt the Hermes.
The C550 also has a dodgy keypad.
My question is - is it economical to repair the LCD and keypad, given that new C550's are going for £110 BIN on ebay?
If so, can anyone tell me where I might get parts from? would I be better off contacting HTC?
If not, do any Modaco members want a free C550 with broken LCD and broken keypad (dodgy 2 key, requires hard press) for parts? If anyone needs a spare 'rest' of the phone (without charger etc), I will post it to them on trust that they will paypal me the postage cost (around £7 i think).
