    Hi! I dropped my new Samsung Fascinate (from about 3 ft, onto vinyl tile ... grr ... I didn't realize it was *that* delicate) and the result was a fairly minor-looking spiderweb. The phone works fine. I can only feel the crack in one spot, at the bottom, and only if I think about it. I've done some searching online about repairs and replacement screens ... The one question I haven't been able to find much of an answer to is, what if I do nothing? What if I, say, slap on a screen protector and put on a case, and continue to use the phone (albeit sadly)? Is there some risk of problems developing over time? Anyone out there using a spiderwebbed phone? I didn't buy the insurance, and I'm not excited about spending $100+ to fix it. Thanks for any advice!!!
