    LG L86C Optimus Showtime Model numbers Straighttalk phone

    I have the LG Optimus Showtime (L86C). I have really enjoyed this phone until the other day when i dropped it and cracked the glass. I cannot seem to find a replacement screen for the L86C. Does anyone know what other model numbers are compatible with the L86C? I know it is the same phone that Alltel has (AS730) but i cannot find a replacement for that one either. It appears like it is the same as the LG730 however when I asked the sales people on ebay they said there replacement is only for the LG730 or the US730. The LG P700 looks like this one also. I contacted LG and they said they do not sell replacement screens. If anyone knows what other models will interchange or where I can purchase a new screen please advise.. Thanks

    The LG L86C is the same exact phone as the US730. The Optimus Showtime has only been renamed for use on Straight Talk.

    The LG US730 screen will interchange with the LG L86C Optimus Showtime. It takes about an hour to change the screen and you will need some 2mm double sided tape. When removing the mother board be very careful and work from the bottom. The LCD panel is stuck to the frame of the phone (can be damaged very easily) with double sided tape. Recommend to heat to loosen up the adhesive.

    Not to hijack the thread but:

    Speaking of the LG L86C Optimus, does the LCD need to be replaced when replacing the Digitizer Glass?
    Any help would be appreciated especially if someone could post a link to a video.
    Thanks in Advance
