Default Broken glass

I broke the glass of my phone while in palm springs ( the screen and digitizer still works...). I want to get the cheapest replacement, but preferably without the huge-ass Verizon logo on the bezel. Can I use the xt910 screen on the xt912 RAZR?

Oh and the bezel needs to be white...

From what I've read you will need a new glass, digitizer and screen, which will be very expensive. You can't get these parts seperately.

Did you use anything to protect your phone? How did it happen?

I kind of hate it that all good phones use Gorilla Glass nowadays. My HTC Magic used plastic that wouldn't get scratched and wouldn't break. And I have dropped it. Often. On any sort of material, including down the stairs or onto asphalt. Without any protection.

My first razr fell off my bed to the floor (3'-4'), and the glass cracked across the screen. It fell on its side, so I'm guessing being so thin and rigid creates a vulnerability on the edges. I was with in my 30 days and replaced it with the maxx, feels much sturdier, plus i ordered a soft case from new egg to give it some padding for the next fall.
They hyped up the durability of the phone so much, I'd think if you call for a warranty replacement with a little social hacking they may replace it for you. It'd be worth a try.

horizontal drops (on the edges) will crack the LCD, even face down drops are slightly horizintal. this force cracks the LCD, I drops my Xoom, from my bed to the floor and its still fine!

So can anyone point me to where I can get a replacement screen? The glass is broken to the point that it might break off and stab my finger. Ideally without the ugly ass Verizon logo on the bezel.

And on top of that, I'm kinda tempted to see if Verizon will roll out the Galaxy S or the DROID 'fighter' anytime soon. I might just get one of those devices instead of fixing my screen.

Check out this website. Good for repair guides and maybe parts too. At least maybe a good starting point to see what you're getting in to.
