Broke My touch screen

I broke my touchscreen and Altell doesnt offer the 6800 anymore. If I bought a Sprint phone off ebay, would I be able to make it work with my plan? Any other suggestions?

Re: Broke My touch screen

It would be a long and complicated process to try and make that work. They should be able to replace your screen or the phone with a comparable model if they have to replace the phone. Not exactly sure how Alltel works but they should have some sort of insurance program that will help you out.

Re: Broke My touch screen

try to be a little clearer on what you mean. You bought a sprint phone on ebay. What phone model did u buy there are so many different sprint phones?

I'll go as far to say that you bought the sprint version of the 6800, the Mogul.

Your best bet is to gut the phones and just put them back together using whatever case you want. Sense the ESN is tied to the board/guts of the phone just use the alltel board in the sprint version or take the sprint screen and use in the alltel caseing with board.

You can with a lotta work and getting the right rep to activate the sprint esn on the alltel account but you have to flash the sprint phone to an alltel rom first. It would be less of a headache to use the phones u have the new used sprint one and your alltell and mix and match good parts to make a working alltel version(alltel guts/board) of the phone.

Alltel should have insurance that covers the issue that you are experiencing. I had the same issue w/ Sprint and insurance covered it but I had to pay a $50 deduc. Do you have mobile insurance? Also not sure if you can purchase a Sprint 6800 and use it on Alltel's network.

Re: Broke My touch screen

Im sure there are Alltel versions of the 6800 on Ebay, probably your best bet.. There is no need to get a sprint phone really.

Re: Broke My touch screen

You should've just bought a new screen from ebay. They have a choice of just the touch screen itself or purchasing the touch screen and lcd.

I did search, that is why I am posting the question for someone to answer.

What I found was not helpful, and I was hoping that someone knew of a good site or documentation......
