I recently ran into an interesting situation with the Droid X2 at my repair shop. I know this is an older device, but this is still a very important piece of information: there are 2 different types of digitizers and 2 different types of LCD's, depending on the Droid X2's transceiver number. Type A digitizer has a smaller front row button connector, Type B is larger. Same with the LCD, there is a Type A small connector and a Type B larger connector. Under the battery on the barcode sticker, right below the "MB870" barcode is the transceiver number, starting with "SJUG" and ending in either 6250 (type A) or 6065 (type B). Anyone buying a replacement LCD or digitizer needs to know which one to get, or else the connectors won't fit.
