In Huaral we have all the major cell phone carriers, but Bitel has the most towers & thus the best coverage.
My wife purchased a nice smartphone & was very pleased until she dropped the phone.
We have tried Bitel and numerous cell phone repair shops to find a replacement glass faceplate - NOTHING!
Shouldn't a cell phone carrier have replacement faceplates available to purchase?
Currently, the cell phone is not functional & is in our "junk" drawer.
Any suggestions? Thanks for your anticipated help.

This applies to a car to a vacuum cleaner & everything in between.
The phone is not functional as the cracks are extensive over the faceplate but does work if you have the patience for the various buttons to engage.
There are a lot of specialized technicians In Lima for repairing cellphone.. Some of them are the best in LATAM..
AFAIK, not all cellphone are repairable, but just take you cellphone and ask for a diagnosis , and if it is repairable
Paruro in downtown of LIma is a good place to look for technicians
Hope this Helps

Ya think?? Never seen a phone priced so cheap. You get what you pay for, I guess.

People have told us the Bitel cell phones use inferior components, maybe your tech can verify this.

You mean this one? Doesn't look anywhere close to around 100 bucks.
