    Well, a few weeks back, I was the owner of both the Inspire and Atrix...and after much deliberation, I opted to keep the Inspire and sell the Atrix (not an easy decision, btw, as I love both phones)

    And, inevitably, I ended up getting another Atrix, just a few days ago in fact. It couldn't be helped...apparently, I'm a multiple phone kinda guy.

    Now, as if by providence, I dropped the Atrix last night, and the screen of course has cracked (like a baseball bat to a windshield). What to do? Anyone here know of anybody in Chicago who can replace the screen, if it's even reasonably possible? It's definitely the glass, and not the display itself. perhaps it's not in the cards for me to own the Atrix?!

    Yeah, seriously. I guess you'll have to excuse me for not being so tech savvy. Thanks for the link, though.

    And in case it wasn't readily apparent, I'm not terribly comfortable doing hardware repairs myself. But I do see that it can easily be done (by someone more knowledgeable than I), so that does help. Me paying to have it fixed, or selling it as is remains to be seen.

    Wow, that is sure some bad luck you have there :/
    Put a kajiji ad for the Chicago area, lol, someone must be able to help you out.

    Thanks Roze! I'm actually having it replaced as I type this...looking forward to getting it back. With a hardshell case, of course...

    That sounds good. How much does it cost to get the glass replaced?
