So my little sister received an Asus Nexus 7 1st Generation for her birthday a couple months ago, but a few weeks ago she dropped it (only a foot from the ground AND it was in a case) and the screen shattered. The lower part of the digitizer is nonfunctional (so no home, back, or recent apps buttons). For Christmas I would like to get it fixed for her, does anyone know of a good N7 repair place? Preferably one that I can mail her tablet to? Thanks.

Do tablet slippery hands run in your family?  Tell your dad that I can ship you some Stickum for Christmas.

Yeah, it sure seems that way, huh?  The Nexus 7 2012 sure has a screen that loves to crack.  She dropped hers in the backseat of our Suburban from approx 18".  It was in a closed case and landed on a carpeted car floor with a carpeted floor mat.  I was shocked it caused it to crack.  Mine also cracked pretty easily.

I understand you may not want to deal with it, but it's looking like fixing it yourself is the only financially feasible way.

I went this route a couple of months ago when I repaired my girlfriends N7.  It is not worth it, even to do it yourself.  The digitizer, screen, and LCD are going to cost you around $150(That's the do it yourself cost).  At which point you are better off just upgrading her to a new tablet.

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
