I got the phone sometime last month, but just this morning my phone broke...in my pocket. I was wondering, since my phone is rooted and runs a custom rom, does this affect physical warranty? Because I wouldn't mind if just my screen was broken, but the touch isn't working as well. I have the tmo D801 model, but I don't have insurance.

I think you are screwed. Warranty is voided if you flashed a custom ROM. However, since your screen is damaged that does not matter. Physical damage to the phone is not covered by warranty at all.
