Dropped my phone. Black lines through screen. Fixable?

I'm a very clumsy person. I've dropped my phone multiple times, & it's never sustained any damage. Unfortunately, last week I dropped it screen-down. The phone is still functioning normally. The only problem is that black horizontal lines have appeared near the top of the screen. They started off at probably about half an inch in length, now the lines have spread across the width of the screen. I'm assuming that dropping my phone has caused damage to the touch screen.

My question is this - is this something that can be fixed or do I need to get a new phone? Will the lines keep spreading? I'm due for an upgrade in December... does Verizon allow early upgrades?

You should be able to do an early upgrade if you explain whats going on, maybe

Sounds like not much you can do, lcd sounds like it cracked inside.. depending on the phone you could replace the screen through some 3rd parties *shrug*
