I hope you didn't buy the otterbox, they suck. Had one for my Balckberry torch and it was worthless.

 

Here is a site with a lot to choose from. I think they also have screen protectors.

This site has cases starting at $5.99.

And this site has them starting at $12.99

Here is one that is waterproof from Amazon at $24.99

There are places out there that specialize in fixing phones.  Your local at&t store could probably tell you about one.

I've invested in a case for my phone even before it got here.  Thats a hard experience to have to undergo only two days into  new phone. I sure hope you can get the screen replaced.  Being that new, its certainly worth having it repaired and soon.

It was traumatic! The ATT store didn't have one case for it. I went to the Sprint store and they had an Otterbox for $30. Defender for an Evo. Didn't fit. Still crying! I'm insured. Just hope I don't get a refurb.

Excellent links. The first guys vid was having trouble prying the frame out of the chassis. Looks like its originally glued in. But he sure did fix it. It was funny watching the vid of a phone with a broken screen,through a broken screen! I thought I was only going to need a T3 screwdriver. He was baking that HD2 with an industrial hairdryer! Not sure why. Very informative. If I had a donor phone I might try it. But it looks a little too involved. The first link that Ghostryder provided looks like the best option. Send it in and avoid the headaches/risks. Thanks again Ghostryder. I couldn't seem to get the kudos star to click...

You are very welcome. I'm glad that I could steer you in the right direction.

Sometimes we just have to bite the bullet and have someone else do it for us.

When I cracked the screen,the only consolation was that I was loading into the back of a van,a 60s era Sunn Coliseum Lead w/ a 2x15 in Sunn bass cabinet. 320 watts. Kind of off topic. Anyone remember them?

Man thats is NOT a good feeling!  Ive dropped my old HTC TIlt2 out of my shirt pocket onto the Parking Garage cement pavement at work many mornings when i stuck the phone in my shirt, then at last minute reach into the car for something  before heading to to the office, then totally forgetting i had it there, it dropped. Scratched   body but glass never cracked, thats fortunate for me.

 

Hey, I was going to get the Inspire, how do you like it and what are some of the neat features!  for sure, get that screen fixed, so you can enjoy it once again!!!

That Tilt2 is built like a tank! Takes a licking & keeps on tickin. I have insurance. Trust me...the Inspires da bomb. AT&T let's me listen to Pandora & post at the same time. Very satisfied. If only AT&T would finally let it live up to its potential,then I'd finally get what I paid for. Not a better all around phone out there.

Yes, I tried to buy the part & replace inspire screen myself, but it was too difficult. Then I found a place who replaced my cracked screen & they did a great job. Looks like new. Try Dr. Cell Phone They fix all the at&t phones as well.
