    Z30 fell about 2 feet from my end table to the tile floor and smashed the screen like crazy. And this was WITH a Transform case on! Be careful with your Z30's folks!

    Seems it is going to be 200+ to get the screen replaced too.

    Ouch! Sorry Bro! Now I feel lucky. Dropped mine a few feet face down in the street! It was fine. Whew. Best of luck with your repair.

    No screen protector, but a Transform case which should have kept the glass off the ground. It had come partly off as part of the impact it seems.

    Not sure. But the corner of the Transform case had come off when I picked it up. Almost seems like the case slipped off at impact?

    Kind of disappointed as i've never had this type of problems with these types of cases in the past.

    Nah a screen protector is essential for any phone I don't buy that gorilla glass crap.

    i dropped my z30 yesterday onto hardwood, but it hit a chair first before it hit the ground.

    That's the whole point of a screen protector. It's like when a bicycle helmet breaks but your head is saved.

    My device had fallen twice, both times screen down. Thankfully it falls at "kinda" perfect 180 degrees angle so the screen is still perfect, without any case.

    I hope you can get a replacement

    Well at least a Z30 is the easiest screen replacement I've ever done. 10 screws, 1 cable no glue. Way simpler than a Q10

    That case really is bad. Its a great test to how bad the case is made.

    I would like to know if the screen still responds to touch. (if it works at all)

    I know on the Z10 is the screen cracks, even if it still works, it does not respond to touch. Is it the same for all BB10 phones? Or just the Z10?

    The screen works 100% fine. No reduction in performance.

    That is the thing, the Z10 case was totally bomber and really stuck like glue to the phone. The Z30 Transform case? Not so much it seems.
