Samsung S3 screen broken

Hello EF users,

I accidently put down Samsung s3 mobile and the screen cracked

Do you have any idea where in Zurich I could go and replace the screen and whether it would be too expensive??

Has any one done with this thing?? Please let me know

Only ever repaired these out of switzerland. Tere are places such as Saturn that have repair services i would estimate 150-300CHF here or about 50GBP in the UK (having replaced dimilar phone screen there).

Re: Samsung S3 screen broken

Re-awakening this thread as my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 jumped out of my pocket and threw itself onto a concrete floor while I was on holiday in the Bernese Alps. We guessed (hoped) it was only the screen which was damaged as the phone had looked OK after the fall but the touchscreen no longer reacted to being touched. In the course of the day, it had turned dark blue/black from left to right. Pretty to look at but not very useful for its main purpose in life. Fortunately water was not involved in the accident, as it seems that moisture much diminishes the chances of a successful 'repair'.

Mr. Longbyt remembered a Kassensturz programme about the firm Handydoktor and we looked them up. They do indeed have branches all over the German speaking part of Switzerland. Online, we booked an appointment at the Horgen ZH branch, filling in details of the problem. We arrived punctually and were served immediately. It look them a bit over half an hour to replace the screen and check the workings as far as they could. Somewhere along the line (I don't think it had anything to do with them) the PIN and PUK seem to have have been changed as they no longer worked. I checked my PUK through my Swisscom account and changed the PIN. All functions as it should now.
The replacement of the screen cost us SFr. 239.00 which sounds a lot but I was more than happy to pay that (well, actually Mr. L did the financial bit) to have my mobile in working order again with all the information stored on it still intact. If the problem had not been solved by a screen replacement, we would only have had to pay for the work involved, SFr.40.00, - not a new screen.

I can recommend the firm to anyone who can manage to say 'mein Handy ist kaputt'!
