Broken screen..

Hi again,
just 3 months after I got my phone, I went and dropped it off my bed and broke the screen.
Sony Ericsson W580i.
Do you reckon it would be covered by warrenty?
Was looking into getting it insured.
Never got around to it, now im seriously mad.
Thanks.
Life would suck without me ^_^
Oh Lord. I just killed my phone.

Nope, broken screen isn't covered by the warranty as it's not a fault with the phone.

Crap.
I was considering saying that it just happened, the screen isn't cracked, it just goes black with like a white bit in the corner. The phone is working ok, I just cant see what im doing.

Worth a try I guess ... if the screen isnt obviously damaged then you could act innocent as you don't know if it's the screen that's faulty or not, the phone is just knackered

Yeah, could try that.
My dad said that we should insure it, wait a few weeks then go back and claim off the insurance.
Would that work?
A friend also said that I could get the screen replaced, anyone know if this is possible?
Ty.

Yee I know :smileytongue:
But I was after another handset :L
The one with 5mp camera, I wouldn't have another W580i about me, they're a tad fragile for me :smileyvery-happy:
