    Well your options are pretty simple.

    You can find a local laptop/pda repair place in your city/town (the yellow pages will help or google for local shops).

    Or you can order a Lens if it's just the outter plastic that is broken from any number of Blackberry parts places on the net, and replace it yourself.

    And yes the insurance you have is only for the Pearl.
    You can buy a new housing as well as the Lens or in some cases buy it all as a bundle.

    The option you decide will be on how much you are willing to spend or do yourself. But do call around to different local electronic/computer/pda repair places and see what they charge for replacing the lens or the housing, so you can judge better in what it's worth to you to do it.

    There is also one last option... There may be a friendly CB'er near you that can help you change out the lens. At least you have a spare phone if this one needs to be in the shop for more than a day or so.
