Default My mom broke my phone today...

Yeah, a vase fell on it. AHH!!!! So, yeah, no insurance, too poor. She said she'd pay for the repairs, but I don't know where to begin. Is there a place online where I can get parts? It'* a Samsung T309.
Thanks!

Usually you can send it into Samsung and they have a flat fee for repairs. They can tell when a phone has water damage, usually when you remove the battery, there is a tiny pad that changes color (sometimes turns to pink) to signify there is water damage.
Samsung should also have a local manufactures rep.

When is your contract up?

Well it sounds like it was water damage, and from what i've seen with cell phones your pretty much better off to just go buy another one. water and electronics don't play well together.

well if thats all then i'm sure you can replace those parts. I'm not sure where but there are plenty of people that deal parts to phones you should be able to do it cheap. Good luck!

A friend of mine had the same problem and bought a used one on ebay and just got it activated by the provider and found it was much cheaper in the long run.

Damnit that'* what i was going to post.

I know i could find full bodies for my Razr, i'm sure you just broke the outside case + "Lens" and nothing inside.. Ebay is a source for these, however some are imitations, some are OE. I'd suggest OE only.
