I don't think anyone has replacement screens yet, it looks like you will have to buy a new one.

My screen cracked yesterday from a "light" fall too, onto wooden stairs.

Have not found an 8100 screen yet. But the ones I have found, for 72xx are 150. seems like cancelling my tmobile contract @ 200 and starting with someone else would be better option, ie cingular with the 8800 and no camera. issues with those at work.

just FYI. ill let you know if i find a screen

talked to tmobile at the store

to get out of my contract $200
to get another pearl with 2yr contract $249
to get another pearl with 1yr contract $299
to get another pearl with no contract $429

on wirefly.com
sign up with tmobile and get a pearl for $-50 after rebate
disconnect my tmobile and start new account $200

so it is better for me to disconnect and start new with tmobile through someone else than anything tmobile can offer me themselves. I think ill get the insurance this time!

@ foolskill

Yeah, but i am only 4 months into my Tmobile contract so its no biggie.

I really want to go to verizon for their coverage in my area, but they are not the cheapest ones on the block like tmobile.

Plus verizon has crappie bbs, not pretty like my pearl
