One of my former work associates now owns a cell phone repair shop, I would suggest them to reach out to him.
Cell Phone Repair & Unlocking Specialist - Main
That is a huge bummer for the person who owns that phone. I am pretty sure to fix the screen would be about $100-$200, I believe you can get it repaired from Nokia directly for under $200 but they are very slow.

With the 928's full glass front I can't see this handling any kind of fall gorilla glass or not.

So... has anyone replaced a screen yet? I have to say after watching all the torture tests on the 900 and 920 I'm a bit disappointed at how easy this one shattered. One of the big reasons I wanted a Nokia was the reputation for quality and durability.

Gorilla glass is strong but, not on corners. I have seen many cases where a simple drop from 2 feet shatters a screen. Every phone has it's weak point and the point of failure. The 920 is stronger than the 928 because it's thicker in the corners. With the thin corners, you would be better off kicking your phone if it drops from your hand. Direct drops on corners on ANY(touch screen modern smartphone) phone is very bad.

Yeah I'm afraid this phone's screen looks like it's prone to shattering if dropped. But it's too beautiful for me to want to put a case on it!
For anybody that does get the screen replaced, with or without insurance, could you please let us know how much it cost? Thanks!

FYI, if you buy the phone from Microsoft, you can buy their insurance plan for $99 for two years. It has a $50 deductible vs what I believe is $100 from Verizon's insurance.
