You can fix yourself. Very easy. You can buy parts online and you need a #00 phillips for the two screws on the bottom.
Here is one site with parts (there are many) and video on how to fix.

Get a rubber housing for it. Have dropped it several time and is fine.
If you do it yourself or have someone other than AT&T do it it may void the warrantee.
However when I broke the screen on my iPhone 3, the only time I took it with me without the rubber case, it cost me $200 to have it repaired.
And I don't know about here on-island, but in the states a AT&T store cant fix them,I had to take it to an Apple store.

The guy at Sion was off island when mine broke and the computer store near Pueblo/Blockbuster said they couldn't fix it. I ended up getting a new one in the states for $149 at the Apple store. We had to hand them the broken one. Good luck. Oh, and buy an OtterBox case.

I just bought a replacement screen on EBay and replaced it myself.

Here is a video showing how to replace the LCD.
