What is wrong with my phone?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay, so we have all had those times in which we were irate at something (or someone) and we did something we really regret. Well for me, it was when I launched my atrix 4g across the room last week.

I have had this phone since the week it came out. I have babied it since then and it was in excellent condition. I had plans to sell it in the coming weeks with a butt load of accessories.

When it got chucked, it hit the front of my couch. The impact series Otterbox came off, as did the back cover and the battery. When I calmed down and came back to I put it back together. The glass isn't even cracked. The LCD lights up, but is unresponsive.

So, what do you think is wrong? Digitizer? (doubt it since it isn't broken) LCD? (lights up but doesn't acknowledge touch) Board?
I even thought maybe the LCD has come loose from the digitizer, but I couldn't tell. I took the back cover off and the 8 or so screws on the back to look inside. I couldn't see anything that looked broken, nor did anything rattle.

The phone is here on my desk, charged. I can see the screen when I press the power button and it receives calls, text, email updates, and voicemails. Just wont respond to my finger, none of them lol.

I have replaced a many Digitizer and/or LCD screens on the wife's iPhone but none on my atrix.
So, anger management issues aside, what do you guys ( and any tech knowing ladies for that matter) think?

Thanks!!!

Do you have insurance on the phone? If you do just call your provider and get a new phone.

It does sound like something came loose from the board.What provider do you have?

Nope, no insurance. I cancelled it after I paid the premiums for 7 years and tried to do a claim on my BB Bold 8900 a few years ago and they asked for $175 for a device that was selling on ebay and craigslist for less than that.

I am with AT&T.

Try going in to on of their stores to have them look at it. Next time when you want to throw something,try throwing the house phone,like I did.They are more sturdier.


How old is your phone?

Yeah, I know. I normally am able to control myself better than that. It just happened to be in my hand at the wrong time. The spouse have a way of pushing your buttons like no one else can, right? lol

We don't have a house phone at all so maybe I go look for one of her books instead lol.
It is about 21 mos old.

Thanks for your help.
