Unhappy Screen Cracked OHH NOOO!

So through a weird assortment of events i managed to crack the screen on my Eris. But this is the trippy part, I didnt break the glass but the touch sensors underneath. So now i am unable to use the menu or home buttons and the entire left part of my screen and more. I am unable to unlock my device in anyway that i know(menu button, the slider). Is there any other way to unlock it? I now have 11 unread texts and 4 voicemails that I desperately want to view. Oh and I know some of you won't be happy about what I'm about to say but.... I took the leap to the moto droid. I had the chance to get it on a 1 year because I didnt get insurance and I went for it. I will really miss my Eris but the keyboard lag was just killing me. Thanks for any help, input, luck, or anything you may have to offer. Now ends my rant!

If there is no physical damage, just take it to verizon. Don't tell them it was dropped or anything, just say it stopped working.

Good luck. I hope the Moto works out for you. You may want to look into repairing the Eris though. You could always sell it on ebay, fixed or not.

well im not really sure where to get replacement parts and the fact that its the sensors underneath and not just the glass makes it a little bit more daunting. and as always thanks! i hope it works out as well!

ha another person with a cracked screen. I had to leave for a business trip on Monday so I had to go with my phone that had the shattered outside glass. I look super ghetto with my busted phone that has glass falling out of it. There is a way to check your voice mail from another phone I think but I haven't had to do it. The text messages might be forever gone though. This link has instructions on how to get your voice mail from another phone if you still need to get those. If you changed phones the new one should be able to get the voice mails

Bought a holster for mine on the order. I make sure I place it down in a safe place and never let my kids touch it.

Dunno. Never had a problem with any of my phones. I suppose the mere thought of dealing with employee accounts at verizon wireless has scared me into being more attentive
