    Hello, i have a lg cookie and a accidentaly stepped on the screen.
    It has been cracked and i cant seem to find a replacement anywhere on the internet for lg cookies.
    Is the screen the same as another of the other phones theyve made?
    If it is i could buy that screen and do it myself.
    I had a quote from a phone repairs website for over 50 pounds.
    Im hoping to do it cheaper by repairing it myself.
    Any help?
    Thanks

    okay let me make this simpler since no one has replied.
    Does anyone know if theyre are any website that sell kp500 screens by themselves, or are there any phones that use the same screen as a kp500.
    ANY HELP IS GREAT!
    thank you

    Please send me a picture of the cracked LCD screen (preferrably completely dismantled, front and back side) and I will let you know which screen is compatible with it.

    Please send the pictures to info-at-telefoonplus.com and I will reply you shortly.

    Sorry to hear that... do a search for LCD replacement screens (Hong Kong) or (Korea) there are a few shops out there that have all the latest parts - I ordered stuff for my RAZR before and repaired it.

    Good luck man

    Hello, sorry if this is a late reply, but i had sent my phone away for repair by the time you posted back. But un-fortunately they didn't have the screen either and it took them 2 months to get back to me about it!
    Anyway im back to square one.
    When i get my phone back, i will take some pictures of it for you so you can see what type it is.
    I don't know of any Chinese shops where i can get one from.
    Thanks

    That sounds terrible, I'm sorry for you.
    I don't really know if you can buy a spare screen, and you might have a hard time finding one. I would try to search ebay, some chinease stores are offering a whole bunch of spare parts, you might not find the one from LG but you could contact the stores to ask if they could get you a specific one.

    Could you post some pics to get an idea of how bad it really is?

    i dont have pics of it on because ive take the whole thing apart.
    Its basically all black accept a massive white star shaped crack in the middle, like cracked glass.
    can you tell what other screens might be compatible with this?

    Hey, You are not the only person with this problem, seems there is a few people in this position, and what is quoted above is EXACTLY what has happened to me, i bought my kp500 from carphone warehouse, didn't buy insurance, they wish to charge me 50+ to get it replaced, i refused as the phone is barely worth 100, so i have actually gone more than 2 months now without a phone as i will not get it fixed, i cannot find a screen anywhere on the internet either , my answer to all of this is, any touch screen besides an apple product is awful, i have an ipod touch, its been fine for 2 years now, stupidly enough i paid 50 for the insurance and have never claimed on it, so i am gonna grab myself a blackberry (non touchscreen phone) LG TOUCHSCREEN PHONES =FAIL!

    Oh forgot to mention how mine broke, i had it in my pocket on an airplane, when i got off it was cracked, i assume it was twisted like jakerevs was. Stupid ghey phone!

    hi,you told that you have cracked your LCD,but you have not told that your touch screen lens is saved or not,

    coz touch screen lens and LCD are different things.
    anyway i can tell you a cheapest website for repairs,you can even compare prices with ebay and amzon before buy, you will amaz.....

    you can search with these keywords(kp500 lcd repair fitting chicnwild) in uk
    I HAVE SEEN THEY ARE SELLING KP500 LCD SCREEN (chincnwil.co.uk

    thanks
    from harry

    hi,
    no one have mention that when they crakecd their lcd screen,what happend with the front toch screen lens.
    coz if u break both then it cost just near to phone price.
    but u still can think that u ask for fix.

    50 pounds is expensive , I found that GlobalDirectParts sells OEM LG Cookie KP500 LCD at only $20.78 .
