    Before you ask NO I did not drop it kick it have it in back pocket etc....I literally talked on it for about five minutes....placed it on my desk as I always do when i go to lunch, in my office (which is locked when Im not in it). Came back from lunch took it out of pouch and there is a hairline crack in LCD and a little black blob in the middle of the line. I literally stared at it an watched the hairline crack grow almost all the wasy across the screen. What the **** happened and should it be covered under warranty. THE PHONE IS PERFECT NOT A KNICK OR SCRATCH ON IT. Curve 8300 3 mo old from Alltel

    Very odd. I would hope that's a warranty issue. Hope they fix it for you.

    i love my blackberry and im really rough on it, and its not even scratched...and by rough i mean it fell out of my pocket and onto my cement driveway....

    im wondering if maybe the phone was defective at purchase and the problem finally got big enough for you to see it.


    good luck!

    Is it a crack in the plastic on top of the screen or a tear in the actual LCD itself? I used to work at an Alltel store and saw this from time to time where the plastic was fine but there was a tear in the LCD itself (not on a BB though). Typically any physical damage isn't covered by manufacturers warranty, but I've seen a couple cases where the phone was less than 30 days old and this happened and we replaced the phone. It's definitely worth a shot to get it replaced under warranty, good luck.

    All I know is my carrier claims no lcd damage can be covered by warranty. I had a old nokia that the lcd just blacked out and quit workin no scratches or damage anywhere but they said an extreme heat source like leaving the phone in a car all day in the summer caused it. My phones stay on me 24 7 and I hate heat so they stay cool. But I keep spares around just incase. Hope you have better luck with your carrier.

    This is why the insurance is definitely worth the 5-6 bucks a month. I won't own a phone without it.

    But your only allowed two phones a year and it is 150 deductable on a pearl add the 60 bucks for a year paid for insurance and that 360 for 2 phones I scored a used pearl for a little over a hundred so I just keep an eye out for used berries on eBay for back up phones. I take the cheap road sometimes. Now when I get a bold that will be another story.
