Default Sony xperia Z screen broke in my pocket.

Hi I got my xperia z in March and on new years day the phone screen broke in my pocket with a hairline crack and became unusable. I have a very nice phone case to try stop things like that from happening. Anyways I sent my phone in to repair and they told me it would cost R3500 to fix (321.69$). I live in South Africa and when ever I try phone around to get more help they just redirect me to the next person who can not help me. What can I do any help thanks

You can repair it yourself, I think that's the best thing you can do if you don't want to pay that much.
Only downside is that there is a big chance that your phone isn't 'waterproof' anymore after you've fixed it.

Here is a tutorial:

And a place where you can buy parts:

Pretty pricey, but by far not as pricey as getting it repaired.
There are more places you can buy prats like Ebay.
