Cracked G2...

So right in New Years, my girlfriend dropped her G2 even with its case on only to find a cracked screen and a completely unresponsive touch screen... Really sad because the phone was about a month old. My question is should I contact LG and see if they can do anything at all? Or go through asurion for the claim? I'm just somewhat tight on my because of unforeseen expenses.

 

 

Thanks guys.

The problem is that the screen is so large and the phone and bezels are so thin. Even with a hefty case, I am definitely not sure how safe the G2 is against falls.

 

I would go to Sprint and see what they say, though.

You don't have insurance on it?  You should be able to claim insurance on it.  This is why when it comes to my cell phone, I don't try to carry multiple things with my cell phone in my hand.  When I take out my cell phone, that is the only thing in my hand because I am afraid of dropping it especially since I don't have insurance on it.  That said I just have a Spigen Slim Armor case on my G2.

Cool glad to hear that your issue will be resolved.  This must be one of those...."thank goodness I have insurance" moments.  I have to protect my phone as if it were my baby child.

Yeah..it's my girlfriends phone. She's using an OG EVO and has to charge it 3 times a day. It's quite sad but at the same time it's better then nothing at all.

The problem is that the touch sensors (digitizer) are integrated with the outer glass, so if you crack the glass it breaks the circuit for the touch sensors. The galaxy nexus had a seprate layer of glass on top and I ran it over with my car the screen is cracked all over but the touch sensors still work great. For a diy, its not too difficult to replace the G2 lcd and digitizer. for about $90 and a cheap heat gun looks good as new. the digitizer itself usually goes for $40 but is extremely difficult to separate without tearing the lcd.

Anyone know how much Sprint would charge to fix a cracked screen or replace it without insurance vs LG. Corner of my screen cracked from pressure in my pocket and now the whole screen is unusable.

LG is 180(I think from what I've read on XDA). Not sure how much Sprint would charge, if they'd do it.

Here's a thread with a link to a seller on amazon someone had success with. Also had some good tips for doing it yourself from the little I read.

    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term.
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
    • Verizon site at Woodbury Commons finally got C-band. I'm seeing upwards of 600Mbps there, a massive improvement over the <1Mbps I used to see. LTE is now at 10-20Mbps which is significantly better than before where speed tests would often fail. My only complaint is that C-band is super inconsistent. Not sure if it's a software issue but sometimes I'm connected to it and get the 600Mbps speeds previously mentioned and other times I connect and only see 15Mbps. Seems like whatever load balancing the network is trying to do is still shoving a ton of people to LTE, even in conditions where I have a strong C-band signal.  — — — — — You're absolutely right. The site on top of Bais Sarah Hall at 6101 16th Ave got decommissioned. Sad that they haven't installed a new site to fill in that coverage gap.  — — — — — In other news a carrier reached out to the board of my grandmother's building in Brooklyn about installing antennas on top of it so she called me today because she knows I map cell towers and she said a lot of people in her building, especially the folks on the upper floors, are worried about the health effects lol. I asked her if she knew what carrier it would be but she said she doesn't know. A quick glance at Cellmapper tells me it's either Dish or AT&T since Verizon and T-Mobile both have sites within a two block radius of her building but AT&T barely builds new sites so I'm leaning Dish. They're asking for a 25-year lease with an option to renegotiate the lease after 10-years. The board of her co-op said that if they do it, maintenance fees will go down since they'll be offset by the rent that the carrier would be paying them. She said she already voted in favor of it but she thinks that a lot of the older people in her building are against it.
    • Galaxy S7 FE most certainly doesn't have the same level of NR CA (if at all), it also looks like it doesn't have SA NR, so it's is inherently going to be much slower since most of the spectrum is now focused on NR rather than LTE. It's likely the same generation radio as the S21 (or maybe S20). Having trouble finding which it would be.
    • T-Mobile seems to be paying close attention to how much of B2 they refarm for NR, as on this trip down to South Padre Island I saw both 20x20 n25 and 20x20 B2 (but not both simultaneously) at various points on the trip. At South Padre itself, seems like someone else has 2.5 GHz licensed so the n41 setup here is 20+80 MHz. Speeds are still decent, but VZW has 100+60 MHz n77 live (and AT&T has some 80+40).
