cracked screen Z10

I dropped my Z10 about 4-5 weeks ago and replaced with a new phone (same of course).  Last night, the new phone developed a crack across the right bottom out of no where. Wasn't dropped. Wasn't sat on. Nothing. Phone was in it's case on the couch and just magically cracked. Now it's completely unusable. I saw that you can replace the screen yourself. My question: Is it even worth bothering with? 

 

I am made fun of for still even using a BB (Oh well, I've loved my BB's) but I can't do this screen cracking buisness. Getting a new phone every few months isn't my cup of tea. 

 

Any suggestions or ideas would be awesome! Thank y'all kindly in advance!! RC

Re: cracked screen Z10

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

There are plenty of YouTube video's showing how to replace a device screen. Sorry, I have no links, but watching those should allow you to determine if it will be worth the effort in your case...no one else can decide that for you.

Good luck and let us know!
