Absolutely gutted. Phone fell out of pocket and screen is smashed...all touches are still recognised but yea, gutted. Anyone know if there are any places in Auckland that do screen replacement for this phone? Thanks.

I feel your pain. I killed my Nexus 5 in the same manner.

Check out iRepair in Avondale. Great service and value for money. Not sure if they do that model, but they recently did my daughter's Lumia 620 ($80), so I think your chances are good.

johnr: Watch out for fake screens from China the quality is very very poor

That could be an issue with iRepair then, as they had to import my daughters screen from Hong Kong. But I've used them a couple of times, and have no poor quality issues with their workmanship or the screens they used (an iPhone 4 was the other one they repaired for us).

I had the same thing.
It actually happened same day my cover for it arrived in the post.
Had the repair done by Fonebiz in Newmarket, they were amazing.
Assessed yesterday for insurance, I took it in this morning and it was done by lunchtime.
350 all up,
Very much recommend, Cilla was fantastic help
