I broke my EVO 4G - Do I have any options?

I dropped my EVO4G facedown onto a hard surface.  The screen is badly cracked but, fortunately, the phone powers up and I was able to backup everything.  I've been reasonably satisfied with Sprint's plan for the past 20 or so months.  Unlimited data is good for me and I'm interested in staying with it.


I contacted Sprint via chat:  I am not eligible for any kind of new phone at a discount until 12/1/12.  An equivalent phone today is $600+.  Can't even renew the contract until 12/1/12.  Very sorry, crocodile tears, etc.


Chat agent offered a Hero and Blackberry as stopgaps.  $79 and $99 respectively. Hero has poor reviews.  Blackberry has no Wifi.  I asked about  a 'dumb phone' for two months but they're out of stock.


Do I have any other options?  Are Sprint Stores worth a visit?  Can I buy a phone off of eBay or Craigslist and use it without gumming up the works with Sprint?
