Hey, sometimes you drop your cell phone before the two-year contract is up, and you really don't want to pay the unsubsidized price of $600 for a new phone.

I can understand. Apparently this LG EnV2 has gone through an impromptu fix, which--assuming the keyboard isn't unusable--looks like it might work fairly well.

This is actually a pretty good hack, considering that the EnV2 is a flip phone that opens up to a full QWERTY keyboard. This user will probably get a lot more life out of this phone, and all because he or she wasn't the type to give up on technology.
