General Smashed Screen - Now What...

    My T-Bolt hit the asphalt this morning and now I have a shattered screen. Of course no where close to being eligible for an upgrade and the second line which doesn't have a smartphone and is eligible belongs to the wife who is awaiting the iPhone 5 in a few weeks.

    While the phone still works, it looks like hell and I don't want to trust it since I am on the road until the middle of November for business.

    So....

    No time to do a repair.

    I did send a PM on one in the classifieds but assuming he doesn't replay back (or am unable to meet my needs/terms), suggestions?

    I have kept my phone stock. I don't have 3G locally but my travels will have me in 4G 30 to 40% of the time.

    I have not called Verizon to see what my options are. On the web everything is full priced for me. Assuming I have to pay full price, anything new/better to purchase? I really have not kept up much on new phones.

    I do like the HTC Sense but also used an original Motorola Droid which was not bad except for the sluggish performance.

    I managed to get a new Bionic at the 2 year contract price but with no new contract. Still not what I had in mind but it gets me going in a hurry which is what I really need.

    How did you manage to get it at the 2 year price?

    Made a phone call to our Verizon Rep for our company and asked for a huge favor.

    I've seen various little stores/kiosks in malls that sometimes offer screen repair.

    Haha I've dropped mine lots of time but it only seems to be when I drop it on sand it cracks. I now have 2 cracks. Luckily they are single and not spidered out

    You don't have any small cell phone stores by you? They always do repairs most of the time is same day of they have the parts. I wouldn't go thru insurance because of this its gonna cost $100 to replace I'd just get it fixed.

    Wow, glad you have those skills! Looks pretty involved, with heating up the frame and using the adhesive as well. I'd probably make a mess of it.
