    Catching me unawares, my 2 year old daughter snuck up on me and in one swift
    movement pulled my T630 from my breast pocket and deftly threw it across the
    room aiming it perfectly at a concrete fireplace.

    No superficial damage to the phone but the screen display has gone haywire
    as illustrated in these images http://www.metafazeuk.com/t630/

    I have taken the phone apart (I had a T610 which due to its immersion in a
    bath (and hence the recent purchase of the T630), I've become quite skilled
    at)) to examine the screen and can see no obvious damage. Would anyone care
    to speculate what has gone wrong? (I thought a conncection had come loose
    but the screen is attached to the PSB by a ribbon cable which seems intact).

    Many thanks

    Option 2 is very appealing following the ear-bashing I've had over the
    weekend.......

    The P900 is nice :-)

    Yeah, I think I would take the P900 myself, but then again!

    Seriously, can anyone tell by looking at it where the problem may lie? Is it
    repairable do you think? (If I flag up the possibility of buying yet another
    phone she'll remove something and it will make my eyes water whatever it
    is!)

    Thanks for your help - please!

    Why do Kids do that, my Niece is the same, if you tell her she is not allow
    to touch something, she goes out of her way to get it, when she does, what
    does she do....., she throws it as hard a possible!. the mind boggles.

    don't suppose that this sort of accidental damage is covered by your
    insurance is it??

    I'd thought of that but it would mean going through the rigmarole of getting
    it certified as 'beyond economical repair'. I thought if I could wade in
    there with a hot soldering iron and a hammer I may be able to do something
    :-)

    I did think, though, that it may have dislodged something which I could have
    replaced seeing as the screen appears to be undamaged, but I know as much
    about the inside workings of a T630 as I do the mood of my wife when I tell
    her........

    Those aren't exclusive options: "I'll miss her, but the P900 sure is
    nice!"

    Ted:
    If I was in your situation I would get a LCD for a T610/T616 and try
    installing it in the phone (LCD's for T630 don't seem to be available just
    yet) I would use this till I could get the correct screen.

    Yo haven't considered the possibility of bringing the phone to a
    SonyEricsson service center? Even though this kind of damage probably isn't
    covered by the warranty (but who knows?), I believe that the cost for a
    repair would be much lower than the price of a new unit.
