If it's still usable just keep using it as is. I cracked my screen recently, the screen protector is holding all the chunks together, so it still works fine. I'm going to keep using it until I'm ready to get a new phone.

If it's really bad and you need to get something to finish your contract with then hit up eBay, there's lots of cheap phones there.

You can replace the glass! I had to do This to my phone. The glass cost $11 and the tape was $4 the tool kit was $7. It took about 45 minutes to do and there were videos on YouTube,

I use Page Plus - they will do either prepaid or pay by the month. It's all on Verizon's network and they will activate most any Verizon handset with a clear ESN. The rates are very good - https://www.pagepluscellular.com/ - haven't used customer service much but I would expect it to be spotty. My comments here are for dumbphones, can't speak for smartphones.

Not sure where you live but there's a phone repair kiosk in the mall near me.
