Default rooted phone cracked screen what to do?

I bought my phone earlier this month. Just now it feel off my table and the screen is cracked and not working. You can see the crack on the screen. What are my options here? The phone is rooted and you can see the custom unlock screen (if the screen was working). I do have insurance. Im still within the 15 day return period too. Im not sure if that matters

You can just fix it yourself, or pay a service to - google N3 lcd and see what your options are.

What was it doing do close to the edge of the table, and who knocked it off, (N3 doesn't move by itself)

First of all I'd compare the prices of having samsung repair it and insurance replacing it.

The samsung service center will fix it no matter what, but for a fee of course. About a year ago I smashed my S III's screen and sent it for repair to the service center in Texas. It cost me $170. In the end it's all a matter of how much time and $ you want to spend.
Do you know if your LCD is still intact? If it's not, I'd pay to have samsung repair it. LCD/glass assemblies are expensive last time I checked.

Repair glass only:

The return period is only 14 days and that does not cover damage caused by you.. The insurance will cover that but only after the 200 dollar deductible.

If you used kingo to ROOT then just use Kingo again to unroot and boot the device twice and the lock should go away.. Even if you rooted it does not void the warranty since rooting does not trip KNOX. Only changes that trip KNPX will void the warranty..

Please do not discuss fraudulent methods for replacement of devices, pay up, do the right thing.

And questions belong in the Q and A thread...so, thread moved.

You sure about that? When I contacted AT&T to get my phone replaced, the rep asked me if I was rooted, twice. I know you were talking about Samsung, but I always feel they are in cahoots with each other.
