My touch screen doesn't work after dropping it?

My floors are concrete covered by wood paneling. My phone (LG Optimus G) slipped off of my bed and landed face first, completely shattering the screen. It turns on and off and the screen is normal looking, but the touch doesn't work anymore. I can't unlock it or anything. Can I get it fixed or is it just cheaper and easier to replace it? Will my warranty and/or insurance on it cover it?

Is this a good question?

The exact thing happened to me when I was in practice yesterday. I dropped my phone face down and then it got a bunch of cracks. Now I don't know what to do because even though my screen looks ok the touch is still not working.

The problem is that your digitizer is broken. It is repairable. I've done this repair for two different customers. The charge for the repair will completely depend on who you take the unit to. I do not think that the manufacturer warranty will cover it, but if you are paying for insurance, physical damage should be covered. It completely depends on what kind of insurance you have on the device. Hopefully your insurance will cover this incident. If not, seek a local repair shop and get a quote. I'm not sure where you're located, but you can email me for a quote as well at info@mr-geek.com. Good luck!

Update

There are several models of the Optimus G. I have been able to find replacement components on Amazon.com by searching for "LG Optimus G digitizer LCD" which brings up several purchase options for either the LCD by itself, the digitizer by itself or both of them together.

That would require a replacement screen/digitizer assembly. The cost depends on the model of your phone and if you do it yourself or have someone else do it. I can give you part costs if you post what model of phone you have. Model and carrier (AT&T, Sprint, etc.)
