Default Phone Won't Turn On

Please Login to Remove!

I was texting, and went to put something in a shelf, I dropped my Blackberry 8330 screen first onto my hardwood floor. I finished doing what I was doing before picking it up because I've dropped it way worse than that and didn't think it'd be a problem, when I picked it up my screen was half white but I could still see the right side and saw I had a text, but I didn't bother to scroll, I pulled my battery out (Like always when this thing has messed up) and put it back in, but it won't come back on.

Anyone know the problem? Tell me anything I can do, because I can not get a new phone.

Not sure if I'm allowed to do this, but

Now my phone is receiving texts and flashing, I just can't read them cause my screen is off.

The problem is that you dropped it.
I'm not sure what else can be done.

There's got to be something off in there if it's still receiving texts and calls. Did I mess up my LCD screen or something?

yes, you've likely broken your screen.
