Good study phone for teenager?

So we had the Pantech Pursuit for my 12 year old for a year. Screen just went black - 3 weeks after the warranty expired, of course. AT&T contract doesn't allow for a new phone til August. I was looking for an inexpensive unlocked phone. He texts a lot and would prefer a touch screen - so I bought the LG Xenon at Best Buy but it arrived with a cracked screen (colored vertical stripes on screen).
Is an unlocked phone the way to go? Any recommendations? Should I go back to the Xenon and take the chance with it? My concern is that the screen might be easily breakable in the hands of a 12 year old boy. I didn't want to spend more than $100. Am I being unreasonable? Please help!!
