    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    Phone is back up and working, but it was very strange ... at first bootup after the screen came back, it stayed at white screen w/hourglass and there was some definite screen corruption after 2-3 minutes. It never got beyond this point. I pulled the battery again and reinstalled and it came up fine the next time around, so I promptly walked across the street to the local store asked for insurance. They wouldn't give it to me. I explained what happened and what was wrong, they gave me a number to call for a replacement BB under warranty, and when I called, the BB literally had less than a week of warranty left, but they still offered a replacement (hooray?!)

    So, no more taking chances...replacement on the way. Still unnerving that this happened starting with a 2' drop onto a tile floor.

    Even the slightest drop can cause significant damage to a BB. The components inside are very sensitive.
    I recommend a good case to protect it. Maybe even an Otterbox. With that one you can pretty much run over it and it will still be ok.
