    I recently dropped my Blackberry Storm and the screen broke. The phone itself still works, i can receive calls and messages but just can't see anything. My contract is not up yet and my upgrade is a while away, and I did not get the insurance. It seems that my only option is to buy another Storm/Storm 2 at retail price. My question is that if i were to buy a Storm 2 online, would i just have to insert the SIM card from the old phone to the new one for it to have the same number and data plan? And then in terms of contacts, pictures, media, etc., just use BBDM to transfer that data from old to new through backup/restore?

    Have you considered buying a replacement screen online, and take your phone apart to swap it out?

    Note, swapping SIMs will only work if you have a 9500 or other GSM Storm. It won't work with a CDMA device (if you have a CDMA (e.g. 9530) Storm, let us know who your carrier is so that we can help further).

    But I'd try the suggestion of purchasing a new screen. One place that some people I know have used is called Horizon Wireless. It isn't too hard to swap out the screen and there are videos on YouTube of how to do this.
