Hey James!

If you had the phone under a year you can send it out for repair, just bring it to a koodo kiosk and they will send it out for repair and provide you with a loaner

Keep in mind that it wouldn't be covered under warranty as its physical damage

Check your local shops and Koodo retail partners such as best buy or Walmart and they may still have stock but Koodo has discontinued carrying it so chances of finding one might be pretty low.

You should go to staples if you have one near you and they sell the newer version of the Moto G that's unlocked to use on any compatible carrier such as Koodo.

Your choice of first or second generations. Get a quote from a local repair shop first. Check out kijiji in your area.

Looks like around $200 Cdn to replace. Maybe an opportunity to upgrade.

As it i a physical damage, i will not be covered in your one year warranty. You can goto any local repair shop to get it repair or go to your nearest koodo mobile store ( find the nearest location online) and upgrade your phone to a brand new one. There are few stores that atill carry moto g. You can either upgrade to moto g or see some more options suitable according to your need.
Some stores also have refurbished phones that will cost you cheaper than the new ones.

You just took everything that was already said in this thread and put it into your response with nothing to add.... That wasn't really helpful now was it

Hi Samridhi, it's a lofty goal you wanting to become a Mobile Master :) However, keep in mind that before you post an answer, you check the answers already given. For example, Paul already mentioned the warranty bit, and Bob the buying a new phone bit.

In other words, make sure answers are informative and high quality, but don't "parrot" (other than accidentally posting at the same time as somebody else) :) Good luck in your endeavors!
