    You could post pictures and we could help you decide. I'd say if it don't look too bad let it go. It would be an insurance replacement and those ain't free and can be limited (VZW allows you 2 per year at 50 each)

    I remember when I dropped my 8330 on concrete after I got of work. Man did that hurt, not the phone, me! I have some scratches along the right side of the Curve now. Doesn't bother me to much, I'll probably buy housing for it in a little while.

    I mean I wouldn't get it replaced... If it still works fine then to me its a-ok! BB's are going to get beat up, but they beauty of them is they can take a beating and keep working and doing their job unlike iphone that drops and shatters lol . I dropped my BB Flip multiple time and it has some dings and few scratches but I kept it and still love it

    If you can warranty it I'd do it, as long as you can do the exchange at the store right away... If not then no worries as it's not that bad at all. Just get new housing every once in awhile.

    That's it?! Jeez, you can replace that part of the phone without having to get rid of the whole device. Not really that bad at all.

    That "damage" is really nothing. You should be glad that it didn't suffer more than that. If it's working fine for you then why get it replaced for that small ding?
