After owning my Lumia 1520 for nearly a year and not getting any scratches, today I managed to completely smash the screen :-(


eInfo say they can repair it for $289.


Does anyone else have any other suggestions?

I had a SIM card slot replaced on a Sony Xperia Z at OmniTech, they were insanely cheap but I had a lot of trouble with them because the phone wasn't waterproof afterwards, and I was never told that would happen. 

If you don't have anything like that to worry about I'd have no trouble recommending them. Fast and cheap.
