Find a repair shop that handles those phones and see of you can get a replacement. . . Contact the manufacturer. . . Are there any local electronics supply houses near you?

I think it depends on the phone... for some, the ribbon is attatched to the LCD, and for some it's seperate. You could either buy a new LCD or a new Ribbon...
