My LG cingular Phone broke!

So i was playing on the icey hill today, sliding down on a skateboard with no wheels. lol. was fun

then i pulled out my phone and it was broke. flip phone in two pieces.

My phone is an LG 1500, cheap model.
But i use cingular. I still got 1 year left on the contract.

I tried my sim card in my friends phone but it didnt work in his motorola + itunes model. but he has cingular too.

what phones can i use? What do i do? I dont wanna buy the same phone.
Guess ill go to cingular tommorrow and ask which phone can accept my current sim card. then get it off ebay/amazon.com

Buy a go phone. My mom washed her cingular phone, popped the sim card out and worked fine in the go phone, c139 for $20 from wal mart.

eh tough luck man... you should try cafeteria trays, we seemed to always get mad speed with the plastic on ice action, never broke a phone either
i'm kinda suprised it didn't work in your friends.. i just pulled the sim out and put it in my new phone no problem.
i was under the impression that you should be able to user either a) any unlocked phone or b) any other sim-based cingular phone.. someone else may know more about the whole gsm or whatever network, i think there's a couple different ones
if you want to try another cingular lg, i'm trying to sell mine and could ship it

Re: My LG cingular Phone broke!

Keep in mind, though, that there are several different versions of SIM cards. There was a bit more info about it in the 'ask a cellphone specialist' awhile back, try digging that up for more answers.
