Default Dropped my 7230

Please Login to Remove!

I have dropped my 7230 whilst it was in my hip bag. I heard a heart-crushing bound-to-have-been-a-gadget-breaking sound and checked my digital camera and video cameras were OK. It was only hours later when I had to find my BB that I realised that it was in the same bag. One look at it said it all. The screen has a huge splodge over it as if someone had taken a hammer to it. No cracks but not a thing is readable. The light still works. It still powers on and off and when I get home from this holiday I will check if I can still sync with it. Fortunately I took a back up a couple of days earlier. I need to sync with it to update Outlook and then update my Xphone so that I have something to use whilst I try to fix/replace the BB.
What's the prognosis?

I believe you can bring it somewhere to have the screen replaced if nothing else damaged. Correct me if i'm wrong.

Where is somewhere?

I would call the carrier and see if they have a replacement program.

Maybe you can find "somewhere" to get it fixed. Search around for used parts - you may be able to repair it yourself (I've never tried).
