At the beginning of the Fall 2003 semester, when I had just moved into my new apartment, I cracked the front glass on my phone. It wasn't a big deal, since all the interesting stuff is displayed on the internal color LCD screen. The crack stayed like it was until June 2004. In the last few weeks, it's been growing and growing. So, I called up LG and ordered some new glass for it. Apparently, cracking the screen is a pretty common problem for these phones, and there's lots of info on the web
about what to do.
The phone glass came this afternoon, so I got to work. Before:
Once I got the old glass off, it was pretty easy. Now it's as good as new! :)
