Samsung A560 dropped; no screen image now.

by Big Steve - 5/11/06 1:40 AM

Several weeks ago my brother who lives in Texas hooked me up with Sprint PCS; I received a basic plan; the phone he selected for me was a Samsung A560; a very basic phone; no web access; very basic.

Well last night I dropped the phone onto my living room floor; apparently very hard wood flooring; no carpet covering the flooring and now the screen on my phone is a faded gray; no images period.

I can still make calls on the phone but the screen now apparently got shot. I've read where cell phones are being made cheaper; some probably with poorer quality materials but this was the first time I have ever dropped a cell phone; especially this one and now my phone's screen seems to have been effected.

Anyone else in this forum happen to also own a Samsung A560; if so have you ever dropped it and had a similar experience? I went to Sprint's website last night and the Samsung A560 which I dropped last night is scheduled to be replaced soon by a newer Samsung model; the A580 which unlike the A560 does have web access. Feedback would certainly be appreciated.
