Default [Q] should I ask for warranty replacement?

So I have a droid maxx that I got on Verizon edge right when it came out. My friend asked to listen to music on it during chemistry today at school and he freaked out and came up to me and said "I don't know how this happened." Well turns out he broke off the end of his headphones in my jack. Now music won't play from the speakers and I can't plug in headphones. I'm afraid to try to take it out because if I damage anything in there then I wont be able to return it when my 6 months on the edge contract is up. Would warranty cover this? And I have some light scratches on my screen, I don't know if that would cause an issue with getting a replacement from warranty or returning it to "edge up"?

Take the end of a q-tip and dab a little glue on it and put the two ends together. Not enough glue to cause sticking to the sides of the headphone port. Pull it out once hardened. I tiny dab of super glue could work if it sticks to the q-tip.

You could take it to an electronics repair outfit and they may have certain pliers that could pull it out.

Good idea, but I'm not around any electronic shops to where I'd be able to have it taken out. I'm afraid its too far inside to be able to do the glue thing tho.

You could go to a hardware store, get a screw that is close in diameter to the headphone jack and use the glue. Just using the littlest amount possible so it does not squeeze or run is the most important part.
