    Unfortunately a replacement screen assembly is ~$170, so that doesn't do you much good.

    You could contact Samsung directly to see if their manufacturer warranty (2 years overseas; 1 year U.S.) will cover it.

    Unfortunately I've seen too many posts from people claiming that Samsung wouldn't cover the repairs because the phone was dropped (or some other equally lame excuse). YMMV.

    Hola, bienvenida! I have a cousin in Mxico DF (Mxico City) named like you, we call her Viri! :thumbup:

    Some Sprint repair stores will take your phone, give you a remanufactured one in exchange and charge you something between $35-$80.

    Also, you can buy a used one off craigslist or eBay.

    Whatever you decide, good luck! :thumbup:
