There might be a replacement screen you can buy and install yourself. I make a few extra bucks here and there replacing smashed iphone screens. All you need is a set of teensy screwdrivers, a hairdryer, and a do-it-yourself guide from the internet.So, because I have the motor control of a toddler, I dropped my new Galaxy Nexus and smashed the touchscreen. I am ridiculously mad at myself. I even bought a case for it, but, of course, it hasn't yet arrived. I don't know what these things cost to replace, but some cursory research suggests doing it myself is beyond my ability, and having it done will run me $200. Given some other expenses and the fact that I only work part-time... There's about a month of pay gone.
Yeah that's basically what I found too, unfortunately. I'm going down to my phone company after university is done for the day. I've forgotten whether I insured it or not, so there's a small hope I was savvy enough to do that. Le sigh.There might be a replacement screen you can buy and install yourself.

... ok, googling it up, it seems the touchscreen for the galaxy nexus is built in and inseperable from the LCD... sooo... yeah. Might I suggest insuring it this time.
Anyone who doesn't get mad over the ruining of a $400 item is either jawdroppingly rich or dangerously disconnected from economic reality.I was blindlingly mad at myself when it happened, and I'm still pretty ticked. Which is ridiculous, it's just a phone. I guess I'm more of a materialist than I'd have liked to think.
I hate it when I roll over on my phone and don't hear the alarm... that panic'd wake up is not fun.....My cat has taken to sleeping on my phone at night which has the sad affect of pretty much muting any sound coming out of the phone which is an issue because I use my phone as my alarm.
