Unhappy Broke the screen- Oh god!

Please Login to Remove!

Can't believe it - my brand new BB 8700 fell out of my purse and the screen cracked. The screen is still visible and everything appears to be working, but it looks awful!

What can I do? (And no, I didn't buy a service plan because these things *never* happen to me!)

Is it replaceable? Who does such repairs?
Do I have to buy a new BB already?

HELP!

As near as I can tell there are no replacement parts available as of yet but you can check with promobility.com

I'm absolutely addicted to my 8700 - can't imagine even going a day without it.
I'm heartbroken

Oh, I feel bad for you. I'm very protective over my BB screen. Surely RIM could repare this?
