Default Phone Problem

Please Login to Remove!

Made a stupid mistake... Was'nt paying attention earlier tonight when i was out on the motorcycle and left the phone on the tank of the bike and took off. Well about an hr later i realize that i dont have my phone. I was pretty sure that the last time i had it was when i set it on the tank... Long story short i have blackberry protect on the phone. I got to the house and went on there and found my phone. It put me within 2.7 meters of the phone. I went out to where it says it was at and picked it up off the ground. While i was driving looking for it i ran over it myself. Im pretty sure that other people ran over it as well since it fell on a busy 3 lane road in town...

Here is to the problem:

The screen is damaged on the phone and i cant see anything. But the phone makes sounds when stuff happens like texts or facebook. The keyboard and front is messed up. I was wondering if i could replace the front housing of the phone and the screen and be good to use it again without issues. It has a silicon case on the phone and it has zero damage on the back.

Really hard to say from just a picture. If it was run over a couple times, there is probably more damage than just what is visible.

My guess, replace it. Less problems in the long run and perhaps just as expensive.
