    Found a Cingular 8125 but it has a cracked LCD. Guy will sell it for $75 bucks. Phone works, just needs replaced LCD.

    Worth it?

    Score. Brand new 8125 with all docs and cables. Screen cracked and since it bled, HTC refused to warranty it.

    Talked him down to $50 bucks. Now to get a replacement screen. Bye Bye Treo 650.

    fuck you, replacements are like 40 bucks, not even that much if all you need is the LCD (if the touch pad still works then all you need is the LCD, the touch part is a screen that goes over the LCD.

    touchscreen is fine, just need the LCD. I looked everywhere but so far the cheapest LCD I've found is $165. I would love to find one for even half that.

    idk, there was one on Ebay that someone took off an MDA, it was the Touch Screen AND the LCD. It was going for arround 40 last time I checked.

    Decided to stay away from the Chinese replacements due to all the negative reviews of them (scratches, grainyness in the screen). After pricing a bunch with shipping I decided it's worth the extra $20-30 bucks ($150 parts and installation) and sent the unit to Cingular to have one of the good LCDs/touchscreen installed. I get a 120 day warranty and if they screw up the swap out, they fix it.
