    I just noticed that the plastic/glass lens on my 9700's flash is cracked in 4 places. Picture quality is not affected because the flash still works, but I was wondering if there is a way to replace it. It seems like an easy repair if I can find the part, but I have been unable to find a replacement part for it online. I am still a week before my 30 day return window expires with AT&T, but I am unsure if they would take it back without charging me. Any suggestions?

    Call and ask. That's what I would do. And buy a otterbox defender case to protect it.

    Without question take it back...it is not an easy repair...it requires opening your device and voiding your warranty and replacing your midplate if you can find one

    I was using the Seidio case which I liked since it was not bulky, but it doesn't cover the camera area, so I will check that out the Otterbox defender one.

    at least on the bold 9000, the flash lens was just stuck on with some clear double sided tape around the edges. I know because I replaced my midplate due to a bad cam button and the replacement midplate had a scratch on the flash lens. I swapped them by lifting the lens off gently with an xacto blade.

    I did the same thing so I purchased a new midplate from sw box. Took me about 10 to 15 minutes to repair but its as good as new.
