BlackBerry has recently dabbled into the smartphone touchscreen market. With the great touch screen functionality comes some new problems. When a BlackBerry Storm or the new BlackBerry Torch or other cellphone model screens break, it often effects what is known as the touch screen digitizer. Although it may seem like a confusing cell phone part, the job it has is fairly simple. It is the part that allows the pressure and placement of a finger or stylus to dictate what function the cell phone will complete. For example, when someone presses on the touchscreen of a BlackBerry to send mail, the finger or stylus touches the area of the screen and then the screen connects to a part that sends that information directly to where it needs to go. Simply put, it tracks and translates movement.
If you are in need of a touch screen digitizer repair for your BlackBerry Storm2, or any other BlackBerry model, there are a few options that are available to you. The first option would be to see if the cell phone damage is covered under warranty. Yes, you will have to deal with longer waits but at least it will not cost you much monetarily speaking.
If you have an insurance plan, the next option would be to check with the insurance company. Unfortunately, many insurance plans make you pay a flat fee to get it replaced even though you have been paying into the insurance plan for the time you have had the phone. In most cases, touch screen digitizer repair for your BlackBerry is more affordable through a third-party.
Finally, you can go directly to a company that specializes in BlackBerry touchscreen repair. Most of these companies are not located locally but they can be found online. Before choosing a cell phone repair company, be sure to check if they carry high quality BlackBerry repair parts in stock, offer fast turnaround time and that they are a reputable BlackBerry repair center. Most importantly, be sure that they have a flat rate repair fee and need your approval before making a significant and costly repair. Keeping these aspects in mind will get you the best deal when needing to repair your touch screen digitizer for your BlackBerry Storm or any other cell touch screen cell phone model.
