Samsung Moment Cracked Screen

So my wife gracefully dropped my moment a couple weeks ago. Fortunately for me everything still works fine, touchscreen sensitivity is the same. But with such a large, beautiful screen the shattered display looks horrible!

I've looked at a couple options...use the insurance. The problem here is the Evo is coming out and I would rather place money towards that (I'm using my wife's contract renewal to get it)

Sell it. How much do you think it's worth? (Any takers??)

Ebay sells the outer body for $40-$60. From what I understand you can just move the motherboard into a new shell and presto! But I am not comfortable potentially exacerbating the situation. Is this correct?

Any thoughts or missed options? I appreciate the input of you mobile jedis.

i didn't write this - pyromatic did over on androidforums; BUT, i thought it'd be worthwhile to have here in case someone was in the same situation.

Re: Samsung Moment Cracked Screen

chibucks-thank you for the information. Now that I know the extent of the surgery I am most definitely uncomfortable performing it. Hopefully one with more experience will purchase it as is...
