    13 days after my g/f bought her thunderbolt she dropped it 3 feet and the screen cracked in 2 places. There is no insurance on the phone. She tried getting answers from the rep before today, the 15th day but couldn't get to the bottom of things.

    What are her options? She called PCD which is apparently the warranty company and they said they could look at the phone and might replace, but it's obviously not a manufacturing defect so if they don't replace it outright they would charge her "around" $160 to fix the screen.

    Is there anyplace else who would replace the screen for cheaper? $160 + shipping both ways seems a bit much.

    Well even if you had insurance, it would have cost you 100 bucks for a replacement. I don't know how to replace the screen cheaper, but it's better than buying a phone at full retail.

    Just add insurance to it and make a claim a week later, some times they let you add
    Insurance after you bought the phone. I added insurance to my wife's phone 6 months after I bought it.

    Its nothing wrong with it you will end up paying $100 dollars either way for the new phone and you will have to send your original one back, they will replace the cracked screen with that of another broken phone they receive and give it to some one else. they never lose
