    In his first picture I see a crack along the bottom.

    Coincidentally I too cracked my screen in that general area this morning when I dropped it and in an attempt to save it, I actually ended up increasing its velocity to the thinly carpeted floor. It's survived so many regular falls but not a body slam
    I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.

    the touchscreen just stopped working, the crack got bigger, im thinking its the digitizer, as the screen looks good, oh and no, i have dropped the pre so many times, but this time I did not drop it

    Are you even looking at these pictures before you upload them? A lot of blur.

    Probably another PRE!!! lol. the pre camera sucks close... and under less than great lighting conditions. BUT thats not why we all bought it either (bc of the camera)

    its not the camera, its because you can only see the crack at an angle, and the focus is not that good. The crack got worst, now I cant use the touch screen and is slowing my phone down as it believes that the screen is being touched.

    Pro Tip: If they are no outward signs of serious physical drop damage take it into your Sprint store and have them order you a replacement under warranty. I see broken Pre touchscreens on a fairly regular basis and it's likely that a Sprint tech will have seen it too and will say "I'll order you a new one, move along now."

    You should go into your local store and throw the Pre at the first persons head you see.
