My Nokia Lumia 610 screen cracked and I am looking to repairing it. I was wondering how much it would cost to get the screen replaced. I know the warranty doesn't cover it but I really like the phone so I want to get it repaired.

Hi Crabby,

Are you planning on getting the phone fixed through Koodo? Because the damage falls out of warranty, I doubt they will.

However, doing a quick search online and I found quotes from private vendors for anywhere between $20 and $50 depending on the severity of the damage. Do a quick Google search and see what you find? I personally can't suggest any cos I have never tried, but maybe someone here has and can recommend a company.

Okay thanks! And I was also wondering one other thing. I am currently using a Blackberry and I was wondering if I get the Nokia fixed, if I would be able to have two sim cards (one for blackberry and one for nokia) and switch between phones. One of the cards would be active and the other deactivated. Would they do that?

You would be able to do that, but be aware that if either simcard is off the account for more than 90 days in a row it will be permanently deactivated.

Would they charge me for another sim card?

If you need another sim card, you will have to purchase it for $10.

Alot check kijiji in your area under the mobile phone section & they usually have repair places that are in your immediate area, then you don't have to worry about shipping the phone anywhere.
