    Just a thought...... Verizon wants to charge me $499 for replacement.... I know that they are the only one carrying it (and they know it!).... should I go to Sprint or ATT and get the Z10??? It would save me a bunch of money and I can stick it to Verizon a little.... I never used the Z10 before..... How is it compared to the Z30?????
    If it were me I would spend the $130 ish and DIY repair on your Z30. It is easy. Get the Screen, Digitizer and frame kit [url=http://www.etradesupply.com/blackberry-z30-lcd-screen-and-digitizer-assembly-black.html]BlackBerry Z30 LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly - Black[/url] and it is a pretty easy fix.

    See Blackberry Z30 LCD Black Screen Digitizer Assembly Middle Frame | eBay only $55 USD!

    Like I said in a previous post I have fixed two of my daughters' Z10s this way.

    Sorry for you, feel your pain ...
    Replacement screen around $150 shipped at home ... seems quite easy to do (easier than Z10).
    There's a sticky in Z10 section about replacing screen, have a look at it.

    GL with your replacement,
    Cheers

    Bought my Z10 replacement screen at etradesupply.com and they provided fast response and great delivery time. Received my parts after only 4 days of making payment. Just checked the website and the screen costs USD120 before shipping cost. Guess it'll be approximately USD150 after shipping. Quite an easy fix if you have the right tools.

    I blame it on Crackberry... I was reading a thread that was called "naked or cased" and people were going back and forth saying they liked there phone naked or cased... I actually posted that I have otterbox defender cases on all my phones... but I decided to try going naked this weekend and by 1100 am I dropped it on its face and BOOM!!

    So with the naked BlackBerry smartphone in-hand your heart began beating faster, your pupils dilated, and your hands became sweaty. The smartphone slipped out of your hands while you were playing with it, trying to keep your arousal hidden from your family. At the height of arousal you were unable to control yourself...climax achieved your smartphone became slippery and your grip on it no longer effective. Then your mother called your name; in a state of panic you released your smartphone leaving it to fall onto the floor.

    Can one still use the Z30 with smashed screen? Or is it like with the Z10, no use with smashed screen coz of the screen/digitizer construction?

    Please let us know how that works out. I've been lurking in here and following your sad Z30 story, and I really hope replacing the screen makes it like new again! I feel for you!

    Also, ROFL @ querty4ever's version of the story :-D

    Woah... you're not paying for carrier service for *all* of them, are you? No wonder the Verizon rep was so nice to you! ;-)

    Actually... I am paying for all the lines (except the Q5) ..... We have "extra" lines currently being unused on our account and I just play around with them.. So until we need them (or the contract expires) I have access to them.... But I only have one number that people call me on.

    I have just the Q10 and I'm only halfway through the first year of my 2-yr contract with Verizon. Unless the rules change, I won't be eligible for a device upgrade until summer 2015. So I've already been thinking of how best to afford the new Q20 when it comes out without breaking my contract - or the bank! (Or my lovely Q10 haha - your picture of the smashed Z30 scared me!)

    Man I feel your pain, happened to me a month ago. After two days with my old Torch 9800, I was dying. I ended up selling it on kijiji to someone who would fix it, and I bought a new one. The guy who bought it found a screen on ebay and had no problem replacing it he told me. I only had seen replacent screens on etradesupply.com but ebay seems to be much cheaper.
