You're kinda SOL unless you bought insurance. You're going to have to contact HTC and pay for a repair.

Not true, Gunny Sir...My brother just bought a HOX with a cracked digitizer on ebay. He was able to purchase a new screen and digitizer and have it repaired at a local, reputable, PC shop for approximately 75 dollars (excluding digitizer and screen price of course).

If you PM me, I'll get you the details.

I've always heard the quality of those ebay digitizers are sub-par.
