Default What to do?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok, so today at school I accidentally hit the corner of a desk, piercing through my jeans and hitting my BB pearl 8220. There is no structural damage, however, I believe the lcd screen has been cracked as the screen does not display anything at all. I purchased it two weeks ago tommorow at a local best buy and I am on prepaid with Rogers. I have no idea what to do, any help is appreciated!!!

Cliffs:
-Hit corner of a desk at school
-Probably cracked lcd screen, no visible damage
-Bought two weeks ago at Best buy
-Any help!?

Would it be covered by the 1 year manufacturer's warranty?

If there is no physical damage, you may be covered by the manufacturer's warranty.

On both the outside and inside screens, there are no cracks/dents at all. However, when you turn on the phone, you can see a crack underneath the phones outside screen, and there is a dot on the inside screen, the rest is black.

In that case, remove the battery and return the berry to the store from where bought it.
