Fixing a Shattered iPhone

I dropped my iPhone on the street yesterday and the screen completely shattered. This was the first time I’ve ever broken a cell phone.
It’s too bad that the iPhone glass isn’t more durable. I found a few places that will slap on a new screen for $120-150, which is almost what a new iPhone costs with a 2-yr contract — but I don’t think I have any other options to get it fixed, right?
At least I have a G1 that I can use in the meantime (and I’m actually liking it so far).
Update: I sent off my broken iPhone to iResq with overnight shipping both ways to get a new screen installed. I was expecting them to take a few days to return my phone, but they provided a surprisingly fast 24 hr turnaround time.
