I dropped my droid a855 from about a foot and a half onto a hard floor. The phone still has power but the screen went black. I went to Verizon but they just wanted to sell me a new phone. I have no insurance and I'm five months away from the end of the contract. Is there anything I can do the get the screen working again? Is it repairable? Am I better off buying a new one from a secondary market?
If you have to have a smartphone or the Droid, yes, the secondary market is probably your best choice. Just be careful and clear tthe ESN with Verizon before you buy. And do everything else you would do with someone you don't know.
