Okay, my gramma bought me a Kindle back in August from the Amazon website, and now it's January. I go to open up my Kindle's case and I see the screen's broken. I have no idea how it happened since it's been sitting on my desk between reads. I've read the warranty and it's a bunch of confusion, I just want to know that if I send in my kindle, will it be repaired, replaced or am I just screwed and have to buy a new one?

GhostWing - It's still covered under the one year warranty. Contact customer service. They'll probably replace it for you.

To contact Customer Service, Click on this link and fill in the information.
You may have to sign in. I would recommend you use the 'Phone' or 'Chat' options instead of e-Mail.

GhostWing - there is a Help link at the top (right-hand side) of every page on Amazon, click it & follow it until it says Call.. click that & have them call you - they will call you within seconds of inputting your telephone number. Make sure you are talking to Kindle Customer Service when you speak to someone.

I have seen many people get a replacement for a broken screen while under warranty. Good luck! =)

I've been under the weather, still kinda weak, so haven't been on much until today. I probably shouldn't have even done that, but I did have some fun. =)

No, I haven't seen it, yet. I will definitely look for it tomorrow. I am tracking that thread, so I will check my email for it.

I appreciate that you did that for me. You are just so sweet. =)

ETA: Sorry, that was rude of me. How are you doing? Good, I hope.

ETAA: Yes, sorry for hijacking your thread. =)

Sorry to hear you're still sick. I've been okay, but kind of tired.

Hope your friend enjoys that app.

I wanted to tell you that our "deranged" buddy followed me all over the forums the day after our discussions correcting my grammar. Another poster was following her, pointing out I was correct. Haven't seen her since. ;-)

Glad you are OK, sorry you are tired.

OMG, that is funny. I wish I could have seen that. =)

If it's still under warranty, Amazon would replace it. Edit: Maybe not for breakage, silly me. Sorry.

You can google "kindle repair"; there are services that attempt it.
