Default anyone see some s**t like this?

So what i thought was initially my home button breaking or wearing out, was actually my screen lifting up. Has anyone seen it this bad?

i can fit my fingernail in there. Would something like this be covered by Samsung? I got the phone at the end of last year. I have even tried putting a dot of superglue in two places and that held for about a day then popped right back up.

bad screen

if your phone is still under sammy's warranty... it can be a claim of defective workmanship or faulty product. you need to call samsung in texas and find out and send it to them for repairs. here's the number to the tech center: 1-888-987-4357

And if they don't cover it look up a video on how to replace the screen. You should be able to use the same procedure to remove and reinstall it correctly, without superglue. I think it's easier than sending your phone in and not having for a while. Or maybe your service provider will just replace it for you.

Yea im really hesitant on replacing the whole thing. im sure ill get that newer version that cant be rommed. I did find the front part of the phone with the screen, is this what i would need?

price doesnt seem too bad. Id rather not get the kit where you have to glue the screen to the digitizer.

New glass:

The last time I removed the entire LCD from a Samsung device it was a Tab 2 and I had to completely disassemble the device from the back, it was a huge endeavor.

I don't know that was the first thing I found when I Googled. Look for OEM glass.

If you send it to Samsung, you'll get the same phone back fixed. If you still have you old Vzw phone, Verizon will turn it on so you can still have service while it's being fixed. but try the Vzw dealer and see what they offer. Likely a new phone if it's still under their warranty, and yes, maybe the model that is locked up. but, towel root works on these phones.
